Pronunciations and Meanings for all grade characters

Recommended Posts

nipponman

Hi all,

I just started a new character-list project in which I am writing the lists for the characters and I got the grades from http://residence.educities.edu.tw/wei3128/currinstruc/wordclause/generwordgrd9.htm.

Problem is I don't have the pronunciations or the meanings for the characters and I don't want to rely on CQuickTrans again, so is there any websites anyone knows about that has the grades and the meanings/pronunciations? If not, I'll have to look up each entry in my handheld dictionary...

why don't you like cquicktrans?

and i think the concept of "grades" is pretty specific to that program, unless I'm wrong..

Well CQuickTrans is more of a glossary than a complete dictionary.

Did you check the link? It pretty much shows that there are grades (as I am calling them at least) The grades in CQuickTrans don't correspond to the "levels" on the link, that is why I want to use the link.

Heh I dunno why you keep posting links of pure Chinese material. I don't know where I gave the impression that I know Chinese, but I don't :)

Nice find on the graded character list.

This works for getting the pinyin and definition:

Go to the popsyjyio website for a pinyin-annotated version of the site you indicated. Save the annotated page as an HTML file and open it with a text editor.

http://www.popjisyo.com/WebHint/AddHint.aspx?d=9&e=Big5&r=e&s=0&du=http%253a%252f%252fwww.m-w.com%252fcgi-bin%252fdictionary%253fbook%253dDictionary%2526va%253d&u=http%253a%252f%252fresidence.educities.edu.tw%252fwei3128%252fcurrinstruc%252fwordclause%252fgenerwordgrd9.htm

You will see in the HTML file the pinyin guides, as well as the definitions, like the following:

[['級','ji2'],['','level'],['','grade'],['','rank'],['','step']],

[['字','zi4'],['','letter'],['','symbol'],['','character'],['','word']],

[['約','yue1'],['','appointment'],['','agreement'],['','to arrange'],['','to restrict'],['','approximately']],

I've attached the first 700 characters in a zipped text file for your reference. I actually extracted the entire 5000+ character list, but the upload limit here is only 19KB.

[since Roddy increased the upload limit, I've added the 5000-character list, extracted from Nipponman's link. The file is in Unicode UTF-8 format, and the characters are in traditional form. You can easily convert the characters to simplified form using one of the software packages (e.g. NJStar).]

Upload limit should have been 100K for .zip files, but I've upped it to 1000K anyway.

thanks gato, but I can't take credit for the list. Someone else found it on this website.

Just trying to show you some grades.
