I recommend mdbg.net's radical section. The first charachter on each individual radical's page is always the character the radical comes from followed by the radical itself (if they're different), followed by anywhere from a couple to several hundred charachters with that radical in simplified and traditional. Clicking on a charachter on any of the radical ...


In Traditional Chinese, 台 and 臺 are two different characters with different meanings, but which have the same pronunciation in Mandarin and other dialects. In Simplified Chinese, there is only the character 台, and no 臺. The mapping from Traditional to Simplified is (essentially) many-to-one.

These are all brand names, I suppose. As Chinese, I hate these... If you are interested in chinas, remember that: Thinner Is Better (Some gorgeous chinas will let the light go through).

From top to bottom: 鹏雅精瓷: “精瓷” is a kind of chinaware, and “鹏雅” is the brand name, I think. 鹏祥:(the words from left to right) I think it is also the brand name of the plate/tea set. 吉:which means “lucky”. I think it is the Chinese character “吉” with a circle around it in the picture. 金顺:in the picture, the words are upside ...
