Not quite there with this sites lessons, but that's just because I do not alway's have access to a computer, but came across something I hope others can clear up.
I just got "KonjiPicto Graphix" to start memorizing kanji. In the front are building blocks of kanji that it refers to as elements (another site calls radicals). The one labeled for water is 3 marks (if you lookup waterfall, it's on the far left of the kanji). What I find odd is the kanji for water is completly differant. Is this a norm, and can anyone explain why?
