    Hi, Matea. IMHO, 取 (qǔ, to take) consists of the components for again 又 and an ear 耳, meaning an ear again. Sincerely, Lubo

    This is slightly different than other tables

    Wikipedia for example - https://bit.ly/3r244ka

    2 丨 line shù is gǔn in multiple other sources. 3 丶 dot diǎn is zhǔ in multiple other sources. 6 亅 hook gōu is jué in multiple other sources.

    Haven't checked all the other ones but within the first 10 words. I found some differences.

      Hi Martin,

      Yes, you are right there is different pinyin for some of the radicals. This is because some are the pinyin for the dictionary radical name and some are the pinyin for what the stroke is called. For example with丨the radical is gǔn and shù is the name of a stroke. Gǔn as a dictionary radical and is a homograph of the character stroke shù, which just means vertical (line). Thank you for pointing this out, to help other learners such as yourself we will update the blog to include both of the pinyin.

      Thanks,

        In fact there is less than 214 because in PRC some 15 (rare or complicated, or both) have been left over Remain "only" 201 Hei I'm wrong in math of those 201 two were not part of the 214 of the Kangxi Zidian: 业 yé and 龺zhuó. 214 - 15 = 199 199 + 2 = 201
