As a sometime student of Mandarin Chinese, I wonder if anyone knows of a guide to which kanji retain the full-form (“traditional”) character, as used officially in Taiwan and widely in Hong Kong, Macao and most overseas Chinese communities, as opposed to the simplified character set used in the PRC, and now officially adopted in Malaysia and Singapore? There are also specifically Japanese kanji.
Essentially, what I’m looking for is kanji sorted into 4 categories:
- Full-form characters
- Simplified characters
- Characters that are the same in both of the above and
- Specifically Japanese characters.
My suspicion is that someone has already done this, but where?
