This template is used for the etymology section of simplified Chinese characters: it shows which character or component was simplified, and categorizes the simplified character.
It can handle multiple characters simplified to a single one, and which component was simplified.
There is one required position parameter, and the following named parameters:
- a – a second traditional character which was simplified to the given simplified character, for use when two traditional characters were merged via simplification to the same simplified character.
- f, t – from and to, to show which component and how
- f2, t2 – from 2 and to 2, in case a second component was simplified
- Simplified from A
If multiple components are simplified, they should be listed in the order of writing, generally starting with radical.
The character will be categorized in Category:CJKV simplified characters in the order of the parameter f, then t, f2, and t2.
