What does this mean: ? It's in traditional form, because that is what appeared when I copied and pasted an emoji from Gmail into Gchat. I don't have a traditional dictionary, so I looked up what I figured should be the simplified version: 艹 on top of 领. Can anyone help me?

    Could you provide a picture? It doesn't render in my browser, and when cutting and pasting into Unihan and such, it resolves to the codepoint U+F604, which is "not in unihan" and "not a valid unicode character". – Stumpy Joe Pete Jul 1 '15 at 3:33
  • Figured it might be a SunmanPUA character, but doesn't seem like it...I guess someone could copy this into gChat and see for themselves, or look up what PUA google uses for it's junk – Mo. Jul 1 '15 at 5:30

  • That is the character, but I'm afraid the site you linked to is beyond my level of Chinese. Presumably "同苓" means that it's the same meaning as "苓," and "音領" means that it sounds like "領" (or am I wrong?). What do "《集韻》... 又良郢切 ... 草名" mean? Does "草名" refer to the grass radical? Thank you! – MissMonicaE Jul 1 '15 at 14:21
  • @MissMonicaE 集韻 is an ancient book. I've added some explanations. – user4072 Jul 1 '15 at 15:21

    The real question, though, is: in what PUA font is 䕘 U+F604? – Mo. Jul 1 '15 at 15:24
