Translation:It is expensive.
高 is the kanji for tall and expensive. (Looks like an expensive vase on a tall pedestal) Remember that 高校 (こうこう) means 'high school', and now here 高い (だかい) is tall/high OR expensive. Lack of context is annoying though.
For me it always looked like some kind of excessive tall building and they are expensive XD
The い is what tells us that 高い means expencive. Following kanji AND hirigana tell us what each kanji means.
I wasn't even given the word "expensive" here when the only definition given for the kanji was expensive o-O
I remember this because of an interview I heard with George Takei, where he said he doesn't mind if people pronounce his name "Takai" because it means expensive.
Thank you @David Willanskii. I've always mis-said his name Takai. Now I shall remember both words correctly! If I were on the web app I’d give you a lingot for this!
I would guess because this course is still in beta. I've noticed a lot of kanji read only one way when tapped on.
Kanji have multiple readings for different circumstances. Look them up as onyomi and kunyomi. Sometimes the japanese pronunciation is used, sometimes the chinese one is used.
I guess that would be correct too. Probably they set it as a correct answer because someone calling themselves expensive is not really a common use case
Is the kanji mentioned above used for expensive and tall? As in, 'it is expensive' 'it is tall'
with no (kono) (sono) (ano) attached, how does this phrase determine "THAT" is expensive. To me this just says "it's expensive"
If using this to mean "it is expensive" would it be saying "the price is expensive" or "the object is expensive"?
