KangXi Radicals


The second Qing Emperor, KangXi, (reigned 1662-1722) decreed the compilation of a dictionary of all chinese characters used in China. When it was completed in 1716, it was duly named after him, The KangXi ZiDian, or KangXi Dictionary. In total, there were around 48000 characters, and alloted to one of the 214 radicals below, according to the total number of remaining strokes.

This method is still used in many Chinese traditional character font dictionaries and also in Japanese Kanji Dictionaries, with some modifications.

The following are all in gif form, and so, they will take some time to load. Characters appear before their radical number.

There are also some variants of the characters which are not shown, for instance, the form of the Jade radical 96 appears as part of characters without the dot.
