Take a look it the entry now. Generally speaking, we want parts of speech in alphabetical order. Also, for pinyin tone marks, select Pinyin on the pull down menu underneath the "save page" button. Click on any of the blue linked letters while you cursor is in the edit window. -- A-cai 23:30, 12 November 2007 (UTC)

Why not ⺼ ?[edit]

Right after it says that the character uses ⺼ , it's listed under 月. Should it be changed? 76.70.88.14 03:04, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

This is because 有 was incorrectly analyzed in Shuowen Jiezi to be composed of 又 and 月, so the Kangxi Dictionary and most other dictionaries list it under 月. Justinrleung (talk) 20:37, 6 October 2015 (UTC)
I just added a note mentioning this issue to the article to avoid confusion for new Mandarin et al learners such as myself.
In particular, I was initially confused as to whether or not to draw 有 as if it has the 肉 radical. JustSomeGuy (talk) 02:21, 5 February 2017 (UTC)
@JustSomeGuy, thanks for the note! I do think, however, that this is only a problem with the Taiwanese standard, as in other standards ⺼ is always rendered as 月, especially when it's under another component. — justin(r)leung (t...) | c=› } 02:30, 5 February 2017 (UTC)
@Justinrleung, that’s good to know. Being half‐Taiwanese, I’m specifically learning the Taiwanese variant of Mandarin though, so the distinction is personally relevant. After learning characters containing the radical, such as for the phrase 艾唷, I found this entry to be confusing.
And thanks for cleaning up the note; I’m not familiar with Wiktionary conventions. JustSomeGuy (talk) 02:56, 5 February 2017 (UTC)
@JustSomeGuy, no problem! Thanks for your contributions so far! — justin(r)leung (t...) | c=› } 03:16, 5 February 2017 (UTC)
