TANGUT DATABASE 2.0
Thanks to Andrew West for giving me the push I needed to update my Tangut database. Version 2.0 has the following improvements:
1. Unicode Tangut characters for each entry.
2. The addition of B variants for six characters:
1267A/B 𗈕𗈊 2zhi 'to boil in a covered pot over a slow fire; to braise'
2799A/B 𗽍𗽎 1dwy'1 'protruding'
2941A/B 𗁙𗁚 2kyr'4
3007A/B 𗌕𗌖 2?ar? 'net'
3286A/B 𗧧𗨢 2li3 'to spoil/dote on a child'
5150A/B 𗮐𗮑 1thu'1 'to beg, request, demand'
Can you spot the differences between the variants?
3. Revised entries for
0671/2572 𘈥𗂔 1sa1 'to swell; to choke' (another pair of variants; the meanings seem like opposites)
5457 𘏠 2tsoq4 'to penetrate, pass through' (I previously misread this as 2tse'4 since Li Fanwen [1997: 988] gave its rhyme as 2.35; the actual rhyme is 2.64)
The file still has vast room for improvement and expansion.
