96: 王 main, 玉, 玊, ⺩ alternate
122: 罒 main, 网,罓,⺲,⺳ alternate
140: 艹 main, 艸,䒑 alternate
146: 西 main, 襾,覀 alternate
162: ⻌ main, 辵,辶 alternate
199: 麦 main, 麥 alternate
203: 黒 main, 黑 alternate
211: 歯 main, 齒 alternate
And some readings I reordered (listed here is the reading from the Wikipedia page). Useful if you only want to focus on one reading of a given radical; also helps disambiguate some shared readings (all the ほこs, ぼくs, たつs, かわs, etc.):
80: なかれ (for 毋)
Some other points of interest:
The name of a radical can change depending on its position. It's worth learning the names of the positions first, so you can start to put things together when you see them. I added the following cards to this deck:
偏;偏[へん];left-hand radical of a character
冠;冠[かんむり];top radical of a kanji (crown)
垂;垂[たれ];kanji radical enclosing the top-left corner of a character
旁;旁[つくり];right-hand radical of a character
構;構[かまえ];kanji enclosure type radical (must enclose at least two sides of the kanji)
繞;繞[にょう];kanji radical that runs from the left to the bottom part of the kanji; kanji enclosure-type radical
脚;脚[あし];bottom kanji radical (but most names don't have this in it, except for ひと*)
To which I might add:
頭;頭[かしら];top structural component of a kanji
So then when you look at a card like 人, you can make the following connections:
亻(にんべん) - only applies when this radical is on the left、𠆢 (ひとやね) - やね means roof so this goes on the top
忄 (りっしんべん) - only applies when this radical is on the left
And when you see 〜がしら in a name, you know it has to go on top.
刂 (りっとう) is a notable outlier so you just have to know that りっとう only applies to 刂.
Hope this helps somebody!
To anyone downloading this, I strongly advice to spend 30-45min fixing everything with wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_kanji_radicals_by_stroke_count) and jisho (https://jisho.org) side by side with anki.
AnkiDroid tends to crash when using this deck (Samsung Galaxy S6edge). No idea why, I just use it on my PC then.
I noticed that some radicals have other/additional meanings (i comapred with tanoshiijapanese.com dictionary) are you sure these are official meanings?
What are the readings for? Aren't radicals like letters in a word (not carrying any actual meaning in themselves)? Will I actually use the readings?
Thanks in advance!
But the main reason of why I edited them, is the usage. Many of the main radical is not used as kanji "block", but the alterantive is. So, sometimes I was delete the original, and just copied the alternative as main. For me this way much more helpful, and efficient. Thanks for making this deck.
This set uses a lot of outdated Kanji which are no more used in Japanese. On top of that it has errors.
Further it does not cover the stroke order.
For a beginner like me it is very confusing and frustrating to use this set.
I use more time to look things up as to actually learn something with this set, so I will delete it now.
This is a real gem! I have been searching the web for decent ways to learn the radicals. I am indeed very happy to have found it! Thank you for making such a useful peace of software. After knowing the kana, the step to knowing the Kanji looks intimidating. But knowing the radicals is the door to tackle Kanji reading and writing successfully. What a nice combination of radical, radical variants, radical naming, meaning and stroke order diagram you have made here!
And in the event one spots a discrepancy, it's so easily fixed! (I spot snags in my homemade decks every now and then, and when I do, I fix them.) No big deal at all!
This little peace of software is a joy to work with. Well thought out, clean structure, can run as a separate deck and will be an aid in learning Kanji and Hanzi. What a nugget!
Thanks so much!
Very good deck. The mistakes are just minor. As a beginner like me, meaning of radical is the most important part, I will pay more attention to readings when I do kanji learning.
玉: たま・たまへん 王: おう・おうへん・あうさま
king; ball, jade
It looks like 玉 means king and 王 means jade, but its the other way around.
You're mixing Chinese kanji with Japanese, Japanese kanji come from Chinese but some of them changed
