When handwriting the Chinese
it might be mistakenly written as
Afterwards, it has an additional "phantom" stroke which only exists because it's written incorrectly. There's a number of "phantom" strokes when handwriting, e.g. the characters associated with:
- miswriting 冖 as 宀,
- miswriting 厂 as 广,
- miswriting 斤 as 斥,
- miswriting 礻 as 衤, and
- miswriting 戈 as 戋.
I'm wondering if there is a name for this "phantom" stroke, either in English or Chinese, and either in linguistics or in informal usage.
Question: Is there a name for a "phantom" stroke handwritten by mistake?
