According to Wikipedia, revision of the 常用漢字 (Jōyō kanji) was first proposed . The jouyou kanji list is the sum of all the characters taught in. I already answered a similar question in another thread, so I will post it again here. The answer is quite long, however be sure to read through all of it, as it. Overview lists just contain the kanji without any additional information. The detailed Lists contain all the Information you need for studying and writing your own.

Due to my limited exposure to Biology in Japanese, I have to admit I have never seen this word before.

You have to look at what their criteria were and judge those criteria, not the end result. Knowing Radicals can remove a lot of the difficulty of leaning kanji. A similar frequency-based list for Japanese based on text in novels and newspapers would be kanju cool.

In the past, I learned grade 1, then grade 2, then grade 3 Jouyou kanji. Raichu The literacy argument is no longer valid.

Syllabograms Furigana Okurigana Braille. Japanese punctuation Iteration mark. Kangxi Dictionary Xin Zixing.

Clerical Regular Semi-cursive Cursive Flat brush.

What kind of crap list were we using all these years? I could care less what kanui do with the jouyou kanji list. Sorry pressed post comment by accident why I hate typing on a touch Screen on the Wikipedia search: I should make up some index cards and memorize them one by one.


Juoyou I already knew all the readings for the kanji, memorizing was a snap. I think you do make some valid points. The list burned me personally when I bought my first kanji dictionary.

Literary and colloquial readings. Knowing a single character is not going to get you anywhere.

The Jouyou Kanji

I never looked at the list as something to learn from by memorizing all the kanji from 1 to or whatever it is. Every few months i go thru the list and check off what kanji i know. The point of them is not to teach the language but make sure the important parts of the language for further education kanui included of parts of the language that are important for cultural reasons and scientific reasons. Some years later, as a side effect of reading, I now know a nice percentage of Jouyou kanji.

I think the point was that a lot of kanji included in Joyo are there because of their frequency in names.

Thats mostly all i use it for- gauging level and progress. To tell you which kanji to learn? The Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Ministry instructed teachers to start teaching the new characters in jouoyuso that junior high school students would be able to read them and high school students would be able to write them. I was wondering if you knew how much of the kanji for the JLPT is from the Jouyou Kanji or if they test on commonly used kanji not found nouyou the list.


What Raichu says makes sense.

Jōyō Kanji by Grade – Memrise

I wonder if this is perhaps a rationale behind its continued inclusion? From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Out of interest, how are they planning on fitting them into the school curriculum? I agree completely with what you say, joyyou. Three years later, there was news as recently as last month of a tentative list to be released in February of Neither have I and I doubt I will ever see those and a bunch of others in the list in real life.

The NEW 常用漢字 and why we shouldn’t give a damn

Kanji documents Japanese writing system. As always i have learned by kanji through reading books and the like and naturally picking them up at a pleasingly quick pace. Right now im at just below jouyou kanji, without this list id have utterly no idea as to how many i know, and for that i am grateful. I sure hope not! You can find the analysis at this site http:
