I wonder why PlecoDict's ABC / Oxford dictionaries

are unwilling to define 晟; seems a common enough

character ...

晟 [shèng] light; grand [Wenlin/ABC]

晟 [shèng] brightness of sun; splendor [Cedict]

and

晟 [Chéng] 姓; surname (现代汉语词典 2002 ed.)

... although this thread shows there's some confusion

about its usage:

Q: 这个字念什么?

上面一个日,下面一个成。

它念什么,是什么意思?谢谢了。

A: 晟字有两个读音。一个念cheng二声,是姓。一个念

sheng四声,〈书〉1.光明。2.旺盛;兴盛。
