thanks so much for sharing your idea here!
This sounds like a great idea. Do you perhaps mean adding a way to input Chinese characters in the search bar using pinyin?
Just want to make sure I understand correctly.
thanks for the great suggestions and comments here.
That file you generated is great. One thing that you have to keep in mind regarding these phonetic components though. There is still one more variable that describes how useful a phonetic component, besides regularity, and this is called consistency.
This refers to how "trustworthy" a phonetic component is in providing the phonetic information. For example, if you look at all the possible characters that contain that phonetic component, how many of them have some degree of regularity with the characters. For example even 老 might have 6 characters (老,姥,佬,铑,銠,栳) with degree one regularity, but what about all the other characters where 老 failed to provide that information?
I'm working on adding this feature and calculations to HanziCraft in the future.
Sjors, is there anything else you would like me to code or help you with at the moment? I really like the PDF you created. Do you mind if I share it on my Facebook page with other learners?
I think in the future, I'd like to give more control to users to create these kind of lists themselves. It'll take some time, but it'd be a great feature!
Thanks for catching this Marcus.
I'll make sure this doesn't happen. There are some kinks in the system here and there. Thanks for finding them!
you are not wrong. I'll consider adding more information, especially for beginners.
犬 means "dog", but 犭 also means "dog". They are the same character, but 犭 is the bound or radical form of the 犬.
Another example would be 水, which means "water". Its bound form is 氵 which you can see in the character 洋 (ocean) for example.￼
Many characters have different forms. I'll look into maybe presenting the different forms of a character. Thanks for the idea! It might take a while, because I might have to do some manual data editing for this.
I hope this clears things up?
Hi again Marcus,
this won't be too hard to implement.
I'll do add it to my coding feature list.
this is something that is in the pipeline. Unfortunately, not very soon. How do you access the internet? Do you use your laptop? Or do you a mobile phone/tablet?
I'll look into creating an offline version. I know there are some options. I'll do some research.
