the rules "dismemberment" of the characters on components or
decomposition rules, but in most cases the decomposition is
obvious. Chinese character "字" consists of two components: "宀"
and "子". The Chinese character "我" consists of components "手"
and "戈", character "你" three components: "亻", "⺈" and "小". Let
us call these components of Chinese characters graphs
In this embodiment, the composite system has 200 units.
Mind-blowing number to remember? But "classical radicals" no
less - 214, and nothing, no one is crying :)... And the short
table of graphs
counts fewer, and only 3-4 of them are
not "full copy" of radicals. More or
less complete description
of the tables of graphs and their variants can be found here .
So, each Chinese character is uniquely described by a linear
sequence of graphs.
But unfortunately, as a sin, the
character "孽"("a sin"), for example, describes nine counts:
艹,丿,丨,乙,一,乙,一,辛,子. Fortunately, in the full description of the
characters there is some "information redundancy", and one can
uniquely identify the character by a shorter sequence of
graphs. Let's call this shortened sequence of graphs that
uniquely identifies the character marker
. For the
just-mentioned character "孽", consisting of 9 components, a
marker is a sequence in only 2 count: 艹 and 丿. This is
encouraging. In the entire set of 4341 characters which
"knows" the composite input system, there is not one
in which the marker would have been more than 3 counts
This means that using the search by markers, one can enter any
character from a given set by three
"clicks" of the
mouse as a maximum. At that 72% of characters have markers
from one or two graphs. Is it worth to remember markers?
Especially when you consider that the first graph of marker is
the first graph of the full sequence of graphs
of the Chinese character. If marker consist of 2 graphs, the
second graph of marker is most often the second, or sometimes
the last, graph of the full sequence of graphs for given
character. And when marker consist of 3 graphs, this marker
constitutes by the first, second and last graphs of Chinese
character (with rare exception).
How to cope with all this things...
As always, everything is not simple, but
Click on the desired graph in the matrix.
In the top window, you will receive the desired graph and in
the next window, depending on the "Search Mode", appear
"candidates for choice": Chinese characters that contain the
desired graph. Also in a separate window indicates the number
of characters that matches the selection criterion.
- "free", when the choice of characters is
on the basis of availability of desired graphs in any
combination in the description of the character;
- "mark", when the selection is on the
basis of strict compliance with the sequence of the selected
graph in the marker.
The link "Clear" removes all that can be
cleared, returning the system to its initial state. Click on a
Chinese character in second window, depending on the "Output
", gives You either the translation of the desired
character (in a separate window), or throws the desired
character into the right window, where you can "to pick up"
the text by highlighting and copying it to the clipboard, and
paste it wherever You want.
The graphs table is divided into two parts
for 100 graphs. The first half of the graphs table is
displayed during the first page loading. Link Shift
replaces it in the second half, and the second replaces the
first. After entering characters to the output window, or
after the presentation vocabulary card, matrix is returned in
the original condition. Graphs from the first half of the
table, with respect to the frequency of occurrence, covers 90%
of use, in other words, in nine cases out of ten You do not
need the second half of the table graphs at all. Tested on Lenovo's Android.
. Why then
the native browser not ship
extremely desired font
. But Chrome works all correctly
Sorry, I have no more devices for testing :(...
Now you can return to the page of the On-line
test and try to write something, for example, the first
phrase from the training texts: 是 祖国 的 小 主人.
Set Search Mode
to mark, Output Mode to write, in
turn, click on the graphs until you see the required
characters in the window. Click on it and
transfer it to the right window.
手,戈 - 我. 亻,门 - 们.
日,疋 - 是. 示,目 - 祖. 囗,玉 - 国. 白,勹 - 的. 小 - 小.丶,王 - 主. 人 - 人.
9 characters and the end point, 24 mouse clicks.
And this is still without
any "tricks" such as typing whole words. And with such tricks for 10 characters, including
the end point, 14 mouse clicks. Is
it impressive? You can get a
