    There are no English definitions given for any "kanji" questions, if they aren't in the dictionary (specifically JDict, I think).

    So usually no definitions for any of the following: non-dictionary conjugated forms of conjugatable words, ~する verbs (except some single kanji ones), 形容動詞 when they have な affixed, place names, phrases when they aren't set expressions, ...

    It's the -te form of watasu/渡す meaning to cross a road; hand in/over,etc.

    The translations have been added in the past as I came across a few words. beeant does an outstanding job. I understand that the translations are not included in the quizzes, but they are on the page listing missed words prior to taking the quiz.

    I've never noticed any meanings being added to "kanji" questions when they didn't have one. However I don't really pay a lot of attention to the Encounter History after answering them, so maybe I've just not realised. I've only seen "vocabulary" questions have their meanings changed from one thing to another.

    I used to check each question very carefully, looking for bugs and typos. Within levels 1 to 6 there were 74 kanji questions which had no English meaning listed. I still have the list of them. I haven't checked through levels 7 and 8 though. I'll post the list in the previous post (using mad time travelling skillz), so as not to take up too much in the Social Feeds. ^^

    Oh! Just answered 潔く (a level 8 kanji question) and it had the English definition. This is a conjugated form of a 形容詞 ("i-adjective"), which isn't something normally listed in dictionaries.

    So looks like there are definitely some kanji questions which have had their English meanings entered manually, in level 8 at least. Maybe they will all get manually edited if people report them like you are then. ^^

    Every single one of lv7 and lv8 kanji questions has an English definition. I just went through all 576 questions. The only item which isn't in the dictionary is that one I already mentioned (潔く). All the others are dictionary headwords.

    So it's only those previously listed 74 items in lv1 to lv6 which might still not have an English definition. You say some of them have been changed already, so I wonder how many are actually remaining. ^^

    ^ Those are the first 29 items from that list and which kanji lesson chapter they are in. I just did the first 20 chapter tests and all 29 of these items still have no English definition.

    Someone else can check the other 45, which are all in the lv3~6 kanji chapters, if they're bored enough, but I doubt it's necessary. :P

    I guess maybe it is still possible for them to be added to the chapter pages without having an English meaning and without having a dictionary match, idk. At the moment only items which are found in the dictionary are shown underneath each kanji on the chapter pages (潔く is actually in JCJP's dictionary, I just noticed).

    Otherwise, the English definitions for each one will need to be added manually, one by one, before these items can be listed on the chapter pages like the rest of the items.
