Dialect Characters方言字: 尕 and 玍

Xi'Er Dun

Recommended Posts

I already know what these Chinese Dialect Characters: 尕 "ga"--small, and 玍 "ga"--naughty, mean. 玍 is generally seen as 玍子 "ga.zi" meaning a naughty or bad person. Could someone though tell me if they know which Chinese Dialects these come from and are used in? Maybe this is way to obscure, someone may know though.

尕( "ga"--small) is of North-western dialect (西北方言) according to the 《辞海》。

For 玍 ("ga"--naughty), havn't found the authoritic answer, but I think it's of the area around Hebei Province,what we call “华北地区”。There is a film called 《小兵张嘎》, a story of a naughty kid becoming hero in the Anti-jap war. and 嘎 = 玍
