Classical Sources

  • These pages link the excellent character genealogy and lookup service http://zhongwen.com with several of the classics. In order to use just click on any Chinese Character and it will show up in the right window. Some characters zhongwen doesn't have, in which case you'll see the character instead which can then be pasted into another online dictionary.  Note sometimes zhongwen's server is really slow to respond, in which case you may want to try at another time. In order for this service to work you will need to have a traditional GB5 Chinese font installed on your system and chosen for the encoding method in your browser.
