Kanji Hacks 漢字の覚え方

How to memorize kanji so they stick

𠆢 (やね)

Meaning: roof

My hack: not much need for one, since it looks like a roof. Think of a park pavilion.

  1. Hi,

    I cannot view this character in my computer 𠆢 (やね)
    Acording to http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/201a2/index.htm it is not a valid unicode character. Can you give me some tips on how to be able to see it?

  2. Thanks for letting me know about this issue. I think some of the radicals may cause problems from time to time since they are not commonly used as stand-alone characters.

    Basically it looks like 人 (person) only with the legs further apart. It is the top part of this character also: 全

    On the link you provided I was able to see an image of the character, but it did say it was not a unicode character. Could you see the image also?

    Let me know if this helps!

  3. I can see the image. As it is an image, not text, anyone can see it.

    I think the problem is that the open source fonts still have not completed the CJK Unified Ideograph Extension B glyphs in Unicode, where this character is. If MS Arial Unicode has it, I’ll switch to it.

    Thanks for your reply. For this site too.

    • Sorry for double posting. I also want to know what font(s) you use.

    • Oops. *forehead slap* Of course you could see the image.

      As for the font, I am using whatever comes standard on the Andreas theme, which I believe is Verdana. For the flashcards I use a font I downloaded called Motoya Kyotai.
