Wikilinking of radical[edit]

The radical appears not to be linked here, as it was in the last version of the entry. This is problematic. Please correct this. 05:30, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

They could be linked by modifying the template; an issue is that the radical index pages have not been reviewed. Attempting to link it in the individual entry will break when it is linked in the template. Robert Ullmann 06:43, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

Needs etymology[edit]

Needs etymology/graphical significance. 11:03, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

Etymology added. I have no idea what "graphical significance" would mean in this context. -- Eiríkr Útlendi | Tala við mig 06:38, 28 August 2011 (UTC)

Also "bue" in Japanese?[edit]

Can this also be read as "bue" (ぶえ) in Japanese? 20:09, 27 December 2009 (UTC)

Yes. Such voiced pronunciations are called rendaku, and since this only occurs in certain compounds, voiced forms are not included in term entry pages. See the page on rendaku for an explanation of this phenomenon.
