伱#Japanese[edit]

This character is not used in Japanese; it is simplified Chinese. -- Eiríkr Útlendi | Tala við mig 23:01, 25 August 2011 (UTC)

䦉#Japanese -- this one too. Should I just go ahead and start deleting such bogus Japanese entries for simplified Chinese characters? This will clear out a lot of the single-character entries under Category:Japanese_terms_needing_attention. -- Eiríkr Útlendi | Tala við mig 23:11, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
Definitely archaic -- more specifically, obsolete.  :) As that linked page itself notes, Not a general use character; Not one of the 2500 most used kanji in newspapers. It's not even listed in Nelson's Modern Reader's Japanese-English Character Dictionary. Moreover, the Japanese readings are irregular and ancient; I'm more used to seeing なんじ for thou spelled using the character . Moreover, I've never heard of しかり or のみ used to mean thou, and その for thou sounds very elliptical / poetical, making me think this character was used alternately for the words しかり (however), のみ (only}, and その (that) -- ancient kanji usage could be wildly different from modern usage, and was more variable.
Any insight into 䦉? That jisho.org site doesn't seem to include this one. -- Eiríkr Útlendi | Tala við mig 04:15, 29 August 2011 (UTC)
Can't find it in online dictionaries, except for the Japanese Wiktionary... maybe you could ask them? Fugyoo 11:32, 29 August 2011 (UTC)
JA WT doesn't have it either (maybe they've since deleted it?), and Weblio flat-out states it's not used in Japanese here, so I've removed the ==Japanese== section from the entry. -- Eiríkr Útlendi | Tala við mig 20:29, 19 September 2011 (UTC)
