Search the Unihan Database



Use this page to search the contents of the Unihan database. Not all fields are currently searchable.

To select a field to search, use the pop-up menu. Enter the data to search for in the text field, and click on the "Lookup" button or hit <return>. You will be presented with a page listing all characters in the Unihan database with matching data in the appropriate field. Searching is case-insensitive. Details regarding the format and contents of the various fields is found in UAX #38.

Searching may optionally match whole words only. All searches are case-insensitive.

For example, to find all characters whose definition contain the word "well," type "well" into the text field, select the "Definition" item in the pop-up menu, and click on "Lookup." To find all characters whose Mandarin pronunciation is "jǐng," type "jǐng" in the text field, select the "Mandarin" item from the popup, and click on "Submit."

Note that this is a preliminary version of a searching facility. More features will be added in the future.
