Posted on: Using a Character DictionaryNovember 23, 2009, 05:20 AM
i wish i could help you out mate, but i don't find the subject useful and as such haven't concerned myself with it. plus i'm just too lazy. just knowing that radicals have evolved or morphed over time and the forming of characters by different radicals is enough for me. however, i s'pose a good knowledge of the meaning of radicals would be helpful in understanding the formation of a given character. i understand there are three radicals for knife, two i know of for water, person, heart etc.
good luck with your search. i'm sure there are other poddies lurking around that may be of help.
