この石鹸を使ってください

Is soopu used more often than sekken


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Kimiko_Sensei

ソープ is a general term for soap, from anything from liquid soap to any cleaning soap but 石鹸 せっけん is strictly used for a bar or a solid soap.

石鹸 - a salty stone = a bar of soap


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Shinobusagi

せっけん is used for a solid (e.g. bar of) soap.

What are you implying, Duolingo?

i typed in "この石鹼を使ってください" using the japanese IME on windows but it was marked wrong and i cant see anything wrong with it. is there a typo I'm not noticing or is this a error?

Thanks but when i type せっけん (sekkenn) on the ime i can only see 石鹼 as a option and not 石鹸, any idea how to fix this?

It should offer several conversion alternatives when you press Space a second time:

せっけん Windows IME

Now, if you chose 石鹼 before that's going to be the default. To clear the “learned” conversions, right click on the あ icon near the clock → Settings → Learning and Dictionary → Clear input history.

(石鹸) thanks heres some lingots for being epic

what is the difference between 石鹸 and 石鹼 i typed せっけん


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/laters-taters

The kanji was changed after WW2, saving a whopping 5 strokes out of 24. Scroll a bit up for an image of the different forms and, if you're using the Windows IME, why it may be happening and how to fix it.
