Freddy07 at 2017-07-02 04:24:57 UTC Those Kanji have the same meaning. Starting with 干 is the most common way to write this word. Using 乾 is also correct but less common. If you take a closer look most dictionary entries list different ways to write the words. Here's random example with 5 different Kanji. http://jisho.org/word/%E6%B3%A8%E3%81%90 Btw you are misusing the word compound. jakobd2 at 2017-07-02 14:13:24 UTC OP is probably talking about 関与 from the 干 kanji listing, not 乾す. But, eh, not so sure what they mean. Jisho.org itself calls stuff like 干す a "Kun reading compound" btw. Kimtaro Admin at 2017-08-10 23:42:04 UTC This looks like a possible error. I'll investigate.
