Does 唻 not have a simplificated version?





As this ^ (above) just seems to be listed as a variant

Many "類推簡化" (Analogy simplification) characters haven't been included in Unicode. And some of them will be selected as extensions in the following "CJK extension area". – Stan Aug 26 '14 at 7:23

This is a simplified word, and it is a rare used word. Most people will recognize it only as 哆唻咪(doreme), but now it's replaced mostly by 哆来咪,or even 多来米. And the word 口来, though it is said to be simplified version of 唻, in fact this may not be realy a word, it's never used, even can't be inputed by most Chinese IMEs.

it's non-unicode so it shouldn't be typeable – user3306356 Aug 26 '14 at 6:13

Cantodict reports that this is a Cantonese word and is the simplified variant of 嚟 (per Google Translate) "Come out and walk". I would suggest having a native speaker confirm that meaning. I was able to find the 18 stroke traditional character (嚟) and key it into the computer.



Zdict has more information on the traditional character.
