Where did the reading quan3 go? That is in Unihan. Also, where did the reading ne5 go? And where did that one come from in the first place? 23:17, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

I removed them because those readings do not appear in Hanyu Da Zidian, which is about as authoritative as you can get for Chinese characters. No context or source, outside of the Unihan website itself, is provided for the quan3 reading, making it next to impossible to verify. I have no idea where the ne5 came from, but is probably a byproduct of the faulty automation process that originally created these entries for Wiktionary. -- A-cai 00:08, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

Does Unihan contain documented mistakes, and, if so, can/should we submit corrections to them? 00:14, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

I'm not sure how Unihan goes about documenting their mistakes. They may not. They may simply correct the website, based on feedback from the public etc. They do have a form that you can fill out for this purpose: As for this specific entry, it does seem suspect. The kHanyuPinyin lists juǎn, which makes sense, because that field is based on readings found in Hanyu Da Zidian, based on their description. I compared this entry to the entries for a few other characters. In each case, the kMandarin matched the kHanyuPinyin, except that one uses diacritics and the other uses numbers. The fact that they are different in this case leads me to believe that the quan3 listed in kMandarin is a typo. -- A-cai 00:55, 25 January 2011 (UTC)
