Resource type: Dictionary (99)
This dictionary is an interesting, yet slow resource which performes a combined search within currently (Dec 2005) 18 sources: 佛学大辞典；佛学常见辞汇；三藏法数（[明]一如编）；中国佛教（中国佛教协会编）；翻译名义集（[宋]法云编）；佛学次第统编（[明]杨卓编）；汉英-英汉-英英佛教词汇；巴-英南传佛教辞典；法相辞典；中国大百科全书（摘录）；法界次第初门；法门名义集；俗语佛源；五灯会元；佛教器物简述；祖庭事苑；阅藏知津；佛教人物传. By default, only entry-headings are searched and the string has to start with the search term. However, that can be changed in the settings (设置) section, where also each source can be in/excluded. There is even a Sanskrit font available for download. Users should note, that fulltext search (全文检索) excludes the entry-headings, and changes in the settings first need to be "saved" (确定)http://www.fodian.net/zxcd more Language: chi Chinese
Chinese Text Project = 中國哲學書電子化計劃, Zhongguo zhexueshu dianzihua jihuaDescription:
The Chinese Text Project is a web-based e-text system designed to present early Chinese texts, particularly those relating to Chinese philosophy, in a well-structured and properly cross-referenced manner, making the most of the electronic medium to aid in the study and understanding of these texts. The site includes full-text search functions, English translations, parallel passage data, an online library of early editions, and many other unique features.
The texts are segmented into the two main sections "Pre-Qin & Han" and "Post-Han". The first section is further sub-divided into Confucianism, Mohism, Daoism, Legalism, School of Names, School of the Military, Mathematics, Miscellaneous Schools, Histories, Ancient Classics, Etymology, Chinese Medicine, Excavated texts. The second section groups the texts according to time era.
The platform also offers a dictionary with direct links to scanned editions of the Kangxi and Guangyun dictionaries and provides page references to the character explanation in the Hanyu da zidian, Cihai and Karlgren's Grammatica Serica Recensa. Also very useful is the inclusion of the cross references between character variants which rely on the mappings included in the Unicode standard and those suggested by the Kangxi dictionary.http://ctext.org/ more Language: chi Chinese, eng English
Linguapedia = SprachlexikonCitation:
A goal of the Linguapedia is to [... present,] compiled in one place, everything a learner might want to know about any given topic. Topics are presented in alphabetical order under titles such as “kanji”, “radicals”, “character dictionaries”, and “pitch accent”, and are explained in an easy-to-follow way. The articles are supplemented with tables that give the beginner an overview of the topic, presenting, for example, all the kana characters. But even those who are far advanced in the language will find useful information, such as how to write, and input by a keystroke-sequence, rare syllables like ドゥァ that are represented with two or three kana.http://www.hadamitzky.de/english/lp_intro.htm more Language: eng English, ger German

Chinese characters dictionary web Description:
Rick Harbaugh, Author of the Chinese Character Genealogy
, has interlinked the most important Chinese character dictionaries on the web, including the WWW CJK-English Dictionary (JIS Japanese code), the Buddhist Dictionary (JIS Japanese code), the Cantonese Pronunciation Dictionary (Big-5 Chinese code), Taiwanese Dictionary (Big-5 Chinese code), Guoyu Cidian (Big-5 Chinese code), the WWW JDIC (JIS Japanese code), Chinese Character Dictionary, the Tower of Babel etymology database (Big-5 Chinese code), the Unicode Unihan database, and his own Chinese Character Genealogy. The result: Just enter the character and go directly to any of them. Since the dictionaries are interlinking at a character-to-character level, you can quickly jump across dictionaries to check the same character entry elsewhere without having to search again.http://zhongwen.com/zi.htm more Language: chi Chinese, eng English
CJK-English Dictionary Citation:
This dictionary-database represents the ongoing results of over 15 years of research in East Asian pre-modern texts, from Zhou dynasty materials to nineteenth-century writings in China, Korea and Japan. Besides its inherent digital attributes, this dictionary already surpasses many of its hard-copy counterpart dictionaries in a number of ways. The number of single characters contained in the database is 20,902--the entire CJK portion of Unicode 2.0. As of 2/17/01, about half of these contained complete information, along with 6,000 compound words. The definitions contained in this dictionary are, for the most part, far more extensive than any other current CJK-English dictionary, being derived from a wide range of authoritative Chinese, Korean and Japanese lexicons as well as through the direct reading of primary textual sources.http://www.buddhism-dict.net/dealt/ more Language: eng English

This site offers free online access to the 47.000+ characters in the dictionary, first published in 1716, based on a reprint of the Tongwen shuju 同文書局 edition (1895-97). Users can search for single characters or their Unicode code-points (UTF-32, omitting leading zeros), browse the contents by radical, or simply "leaf" through the dictionary.
Only the headwords (lemmata) can be searched, not the commentaries or glosses. For each character the page number where it appears in the dictionary and its Unicode number are given.
For a limited number of characters (i.e. 中 / 4E2D) the dictionary entry has been digitised (typed). Users are encouraged to add more information about single characters in the forum.http://www.kangxizidian.com/ more Language: chi Chinese
Unihan Database Description:
The Unihan Database page is part of the Unicode.org website and provides access to all CJKV (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese) characters of the Unicode Standard, currently (20040627) in version 4.0. Although the "Lookup" function only searches for UTF32 code points, there is a "Unihan Search Page" available at http://www.unicode.org/charts/unihansearch.html , that also allows to search for the english definitions and modern "Mandarin" prononciation with tones (i.e. zhong1). It is also possible to browse the characters database using the "Unihan Grid Index" or the "Unihan Radical-stroke Index" (both still based on the Unicode Standard, v.3.1). [Especially browsing the character lists can become time-consuming, as all characters are displayed as small linked graphics.]http://www.unicode.org/charts/unihan.html more Language: eng English
