Talk:仙

Alternate form?Edit

Is the alternate form the traditional and this version simplified? Badagnani 20:06, 26 September 2006 (UTC)

Technically speaking, 僊 is a traditional (or archaic) form for 仙. However, in modern times, 仙 is used in both traditional and simplified writing.

Graphical Significance and OriginEdit

I strongly advise against the deletion of the Graphical Significance and Origin section for this character. This is of great educational importance. Badagnani 19:29, 11 November 2006 (UTC)

Agree -- what is graphical significance? It looks like "man" + "mountain." Does this come from, "man of/on the mountain," or "man long-lived like mountain?" Thanks.

More messy not-quite-vandalism from enthusiastic-but-not-very-clueful IP users. The list of compounds is nearing encyclopedic proportions; I'm reasonably sure that some of the items are not Japanese, the formatting's a mess, and putting these into a table wouldn't go amiss. -- Eiríkr Útlendi | Tala við mig 15:03, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
