Kotoba Goes Radical

Kotoba’s base set of information is nearing another milestone: radicals (部首【ぶしゅ】or ‘bushu‘). Radicals are the base components that can be used to describe an ideogram, often most strongly associated with Chinese characters (漢字【かんじ】or ‘kanji‘).

We have used the source from RadicalKanji to provide the relationships between our Japanese characters. This information allows us to more easily to discover kanji when we do not know one of its readings. The next step is to build a visual search that allows users to select radicals to the search until the desired kanji is found. Till then, discover the many interesting relationships between Japanese characters.

I’m the creator and operator of this little corner of the internets, writing on all things related to art and more specifically my experiences trying to figure this whole thing out. I guess I’m trying to figure out life, too, but mostly I just post about art here.

Breath some fire into this post!
