What Character Is That?, 2nd edition
An Easy-Access Dictionary of 5,000 Chinese Characters
by Ping-gam Go
New to Bored Feet
It’s a Chinese dictionary for the Western mind. Most Chinese dictionaries sort by
the complexity of the character, that is, by the number of strokes in the character. The unique feature of this dictionary is its arrangement: first by the English word of the character’s root or “radical,” and then by the number of strokes.
This simple rearrangement dramatically narrows the field of search for any given character. The dictionary teaches how to identify the radical and also provides its etymology to help you memorize it.
