Characters made from three of the same character

Recommended Posts

valikor

Does anyone know if there are any more characters made by combining three of the same character? The ones I've found so far are:

森 sen1

品 pin3

晶 jing1

众 zhong4

瞐 mo4

尛 mo2/ma2

淼 miao3

焱 yan4

壵 zhaung4

垚 yao2

矗 chu4

鱻 xian4

羴 shan1

轟 hong1

赑贔 bi1

犇 ben1

劦 lie4, xie2

刕 li4

磊 lei3

惢 suo3/rui3

畾 lei2

I haven't really found a reason to learn these characters, since most of them are not useful. But I think they look awesome. So unless someone wants to add some linguistic analysis/significance to the topic, for now, it's just for fun :)

Also:

姦 jian1

厵 yuan2

灥 xun2/quan2/quan4

芔 hui4/hu1

Maybe someone with experience with traditional characters would be able to find more, since lots of people (such as myself) would not know that so many of these characters are right under their noses, hiding behind simplification (like 奸 above).

I've seen 飙 used. But I guess that isn't quite a component-thrice-repeated character.

㙓 kuí

㵘 màn

㗊 jí

㠭 zhǎn, zhàn

㸚 lǐ

䨻 bèng

䲜 yè

茻 mǎng, wǎng

Also add

䆐 guó

䨺 duì, zhuì

雦 jí

And no, I'd think 川 doesn't count.

How about 巛?

Regarding 彡, 川 and 巛 , we're talking about characters repeated three or four times, not strokes.

鑫 xīn 聶 niè 森 sen1 品 pin3 晶 jing1

磊 lei3 轟 hong1 姦 jian1 淼 miao3 蟲

These characters are more commonly used.

Many of them are rarely used and even can't see in the daily life.

For example,㵘 màn,í... I even don't know how to read it and understand the meaning.
