Words with redundant Kanji 2020/9/27 00:15
Hi,

Recently I came across a couple of words which -when looking at the separate Kanji meaning - they seem to be 'redundant '.

For exampleu Kani meaning hill - hill
or
͐ Kanji meaning river - river.

I guess there is a logic behind but which one?

Thank you for reading and may be explaining.

The first part of this article gives a good theory about it

The second drifts off to explaining the multiple uses of q which isnft relevant to your question.
