No parts of speech in Chinese sectionEdit

Shouldn't parts of speech be listed before each of the Chinese definitions? 13:50, 15 April 2016 (UTC)

No. Wyang (talk) 11:51, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

I don't believe not including parts of speech would accord with our project's policies. 15:46, 26 April 2016 (UTC)


There's a former simplified version of 糖 written as the combination of mi米 and guang广. Don't know now to add that info to this article. --Geographyinitiative (talk) 13:39, 16 January 2018 (UTC)

It's not encoded in Unicode yet AFAICT. Where did you get this info from? — justin(r)leung (t...) | c=› } 14:49, 16 January 2018 (UTC)
I've seen this form used. Also found this image online (not sure which dictionary it is though). Wyang (talk) 14:52, 16 January 2018 (UTC)
@Wyang: It looks like it's 中华字海. — justin(r)leung (t...) | c=› } 14:59, 16 January 2018 (UTC)
It looks... very much like so. :) Wyang (talk) 15:01, 16 January 2018 (UTC)
[1] - We should wait for Extenion G, to be released in June 2018.--Zcreator (talk) 15:02, 16 January 2018 (UTC)
@Zcreator: I agree. — justin(r)leung (t...) | c=› } 15:49, 16 January 2018 (UTC)
@Wyang: @Justinrleung: @Zcreator: Here is some more proof that this character exists as an 二简字: on page 2 in the fifth column from the left of the (1)不作简化偏旁的简化字 part of the 第一表 list in the Second Chinese Character Simplification Scheme (Draft), you can see the character paired with 糖 (the characters are ordered in alphabetical order). I originally saw this character on a 票证 ticket. I hope we will include all of the 二简字 on Wiktionary. Can't wait! --Geographyinitiative (talk) 01:00, 29 April 2018 (UTC)
