Known Problems[edit]

  • The Bot does not use long vowel signs to Japanese Kun because it requires morphological analysis. Compare 講師 kou-shi and 子牛 ko-ushi.
  • The Bot detects the type of a character ("simplified", "traditional" or "both") by variants. If it has one or more simplified variants, it is "traditional". If its simplified variant is also a traditonal character (like 臺), its simplified variant (like 台) is "both". The same is true of traditional variants. But the detection is sometimes wrong.
  • The Bot does not designate the type of a character ("simplified", "traditional" or "both") if it has neither simplified nor traditional variants.
  • The Bot sorts Chinese readings by alphabetical order. They should be rearranged by frequency.
  • Some Pinyin spellings are broken. See Wiktionary talk:Chinese Pinyin index
  • Some Japanese On and Kun readings are spelt in the old orthography.
    • au -> ō
    • iu -> yū
    • eu -> yō
    • fu -> u
      • afu -> ō
      • ifu -> yū
      • efu -> yō
    • kwan -> kan
    • The compiler would be non-Japanese. He/she mixed ゐ up with る.
  • Inconsistency in the format.
    • Radical (-542F)
    • Korean (-5EFF)
  • 'Stroke number' should be 'stroke count'. (See Talk:维.)
