Chinese radicals

Chinese radicals


In the Chinese script there are many characters, however most of these characters are actually made of two or more other characters. These 部首, or radicals, have since the year 1615 been officially recognised as numbering 214 in total. Here is a list of these characters for reference, which, as it can seen, may bare resemblance their inherent meanings. Where there are several meanings, the primary meanings of the character are written ahead of the more obscure meanings.


In simplified Chinese, there do exist common variations to the traditional characters written here. In simplified Chinese: 約 is written as 约, 軌 as 轨, 負 as 负, 覯 as 觏, 許 as 许, 脹 as 胀, 釣 as 钓, 閉 as 闭, 預 as 预, 飄 as 飘, 韌 as 韧, 馳 as 驰, 鴕 as 鸵, 鮑 as 鲍, 齡 as 龄, 龔 and as 龚.
