Re: Question about the renaming of ikkajo to ikkyo (philosphy)

Almost forgot another example of Kyo 教師 For Kyoshi vs 教士 as it is sometimes incorrectly displayed i think; but the second kanji is irrelevant whether its warrior who teaches or expert/master who teaches the question i have that comes back to is the Kyo Religion kanji significant? If not then why is the title Kyoshi reserved for such high level people why not have a sandan floating around as a kyoshi? So if it implies almost more of a religions title that would seem to support the thesis of my paper. And if all of this means nothing then why is religion and teacher the same kanji in the first place. Not the same sound but the same kanji!
