Chinese Etymology analyzes 6,500 of the most common Chinese characters (in both Simplified and Traditional) to
give you a concise definition and database of their ancient Chinese pictograph origins. The seal characters and text are
from Shuowen and the LST. You can also view the Bronze Age character that correspond to each modern character.
In order to work with Chinese Etymology, you must first set up your keyboard so you can input Chinese characters. After you enter a character, Chinese Etymology will pull up a definition, the pinyin (Mandarin pronunciation), Taiwanese, and Cantonese pronunciations, any applicable simplification conversion, and an option to view that character's ancient origins.
