kake: The word "菜單" (Chinese for "menu") in various shades of purple. (菜單)

I'm sorry I've taken so long to do this, because I know people have been wanting it for a while, but here, finally, is an index of the posts I've made on individual Chinese characters. I did have rather grander ambitions for this, which is why it's been a while coming, but I had to scale back a bit in the end. Anyway! Here it is.

Also, you may have noticed that I've started putting a little infobox at the bottom of each character post, in which I give the character, its pinyin, its radical, and links to its entry in three dictionaries: CantoDict, MandarinTools, and YellowBridge. I'm happy to consider linking to other dictionaries too, if anyone has any suggestions, though I don't want the infobox to get too wide.

Here are the characters arranged by radical and number of strokes:

And here they are in alphabetical order of pinyin:

If you have any questions or corrections, please leave a comment (here's how) and let me know (or email me at kake@earth.li). See my introductory post to the Chinese menu project for what these posts are all about.

Just wanted to mention that if you're curious about what I cook/eat when I'm not eating Chinese food, I have a sort of food blog on Tumblr. It's basically a log of stuff I cook at home. There's a LiveJournal feed at [livejournal.com profile] kakefood_tumblr, and I'm happy to make one here if anyone would find it useful.

I have another Tumblr blog too, Kakestuff. That one doesn't have original content; it's just a repository for links to interesting things I come across. LiveJournal feed at [livejournal.com profile] kake_tumblr. Sources are blogs, Dreamwidth, LiveJournal, Flickr, etc. (Have I friended you on Flickr? If not, please let me know!)

PS: If I don't follow you back on Tumblr, it's because I'm following your RSS feed instead. I'm still getting the hang of Tumblr, so I find it easier to use a tool (RSS reader) that I'm already familiar with for now.
