Chinese Character Lists

There's a lot of Chinese characters out there, that it's often hard to figure out where to start. I've created a few lists for you to explore.

If you have any ideas for other lists I could create, do get in touch: niel@hanzicraft.com

  1. Frequency List

    Characters are ranked based on their frequency. So how many times they appear in texts. This is a good place to start.

  2. Phonetic Sets

    Some characters have pronunciation clues inside the character. Some of them are highly similar.

  3. Productive Word List (Coming soon)

    This list ranks characters based on how productive they are in forming words with other characters.

  4. Productive Component List

    This list ranks characters based on how productive they are in being a component in other characters.
