JA い-adjective く formsEdit

Would something like this be acceptable to you? く forms are really more adverbs than adjectives, much like EN -ly forms. What do you think? ‑‑ Eiríkr Útlendi │Tala við mig 22:24, 18 December 2017 (UTC)

Sure. (I was thinking about it too.) —suzukaze (tc) 22:31, 18 December 2017 (UTC)

「 」Edit

I see you removed "Encloses a character sequence that is supposed to represent a single character" from 「 」. Do you think that sense does not actually exist, or maybe that it is not citable? I realize it's usually hard to find quotes on Google Books for punctuation marks. --Daniel Carrero (talk) 06:21, 26 December 2017 (UTC)

Not sure it's citable. Probably just an offhand way of noting that character A and character B are supposed to be grouped together. —suzukaze (tc) 06:25, 26 December 2017 (UTC)
I remember seeing them used like this, but it's mostly online, so it's not that easy to cite. — justin(r)leung (t...) | c=› } 07:50, 26 December 2017 (UTC)

Category:Han characters needing common meaningsEdit

Can this category be cleared?--2001:DA8:201:3512:55FD:63A0:5A07:6206 07:21, 26 December 2017 (UTC)

Not sure. I think our hanzi entries are weird, and when I think about the topic it gets complicated. —suzukaze (tc) 07:28, 26 December 2017 (UTC)
Common meanings are going to be phased out. I think this template no longer have purposes as definition should be added to appropriate language sections.--Zcreator (talk) 12:01, 2 January 2018 (UTC)


There'd been some discussion a while back about having entries for historical spellings. I think せう was created as part of an earlier effort towards that same end; looking at the history, I revamped it in May 2016, likely after our more-recent discussions.

If we are to have entries for historical spellings, then the entry should be cleaned up somewhat to more clearly redirect users to the modern spelling しょう.

If we are not to have entries for historical spellings, we should probably have a broader discussion on that to gain consensus, and then delink hhira and hkata spellings in headlines. ‑‑ Eiríkr Útlendi │Tala við mig 20:10, 27 December 2017 (UTC)

I marked it for deletion as part of the WT:RFDO discussion for {{ja-kanji reading}}, and because it had no actual definitions. (I think people should go to Wikipedia for such detailed information on the evolution from seu > shou). I think that if it is to be kept, it should be as an entry that concisely points to shou, with some header other than Usage notes. —suzukaze (tc) 01:27, 28 December 2017 (UTC)
Helpful resource → KSound link. Please refer to the link, the list of historical readings derived from Middle Chinese. From there, it is possible to list the kanji with that historical spelling/pronunciation. What do you think? How about an appendix extending the KSound? --POKéTalker (talk) 02:13, 3 January 2018 (UTC)


Hey! Please let me know what you think of the page I made about 𡿺! Thanks for your tireless work.--Geographyinitiative (talk) 13:38, 1 January 2018 (UTC)

It seems like Justin has already looked at it, so I don't really have any comment other than I like your work too. —suzukaze (tc) 03:45, 8 January 2018 (UTC)
