    That is amazing. Did you have to go to college to find out to do this stuff? Really cool.

    Didn’t learn this stuff in college. In fact I don’t think most colleges teach this stuff.

    Just a hobbyist with a passion for knowledge….

    And what materials do you use, have used? I see in one video about Richard Sear he used a book with a lot of pictures like this (he have another site like this, and there was said that there’re just 3 sites about ch.’s etymology), perhaps you with him use some litreture taken in China? is something like this in Japane? I was wondered when knew that almost all asion people don’t know this etymology, no litreture, no learning at school!! Thus I don’t know what’s going on there and want to know very much. Although I know someth. about Japanese culture and know about thear love to thear language good. I just thought it’s impossibly to learn - and unimaginable relating culture volumes - it without etymology of graphic part of words.

    www.chineseetymology.org/CharacterEtymology.aspx?submitButton1=Etymology&characterInput=%E5%8C%97 want you with him to team up for working with one site.

    Hi Daniil,

    Thanks for your comments. There are more than three sites about Chinese etymology, but Richard Sears’ site is the big one. I have links on my “References” tabs to his site and others.

    You are right that there is not a lot of mainstream information about character development. That is why I started this site. Richard and I are pursuing complementary goals in looking for the origins and meanings of the Chinese characters.

    What are your goals in studying Chinese characters?
