Lists from chinese-tools.com (fruit, colours, clothing, body, family...)

The people at chinese-tools.com made a lot of lists for those wishing to learn words by category. Of course part of your monitor with your hands is not quite as elegant as using Pleco flashcards, so I converted them. There are some 800 cards; the lists are:

fruits
colour names
love
flowers
clothing
astrology
chinese onomatopoeias
animal sounds
the human body
children's clothing
home
illnes
face
internal systems
men's clothing
doctor
hand and foot
women's clothing
injury
muscles and skeleton
accessories
first aid
internal organs
hair
hospital
reproductive organs
beauty
departments
family
dentist
relationships
optician
emotions
pregnancy
life events
childbirth
vegetables
directions
chinese glossary of grammar terms
chinese ethnic minorities

As they are not based on existing flashcards or dictionary entries, I do not know how well sound works. It works for some of them. Also I am not sure how to create subcategories, so they will all be separate categories. All the seperate files are also attached, for people who want to pick only one or two.

I also attach a file with the Python 2.7 code I used to create these (obviously I wasn't going to do that by hand). Might be useful for someone. You need beautifulsoup4 and requests as well. If you only want to convert accent-pinyin to number-pinyin you can do that with just Python.

TL;DR: download combined.txt

EDIT: new version with some unknown characters fixed thanks to sobriaebritas

Thank you, markv. I find it both interesting and useful.
By the way, in the list included in the file combined.txt, shouldn't u? be replaced by something else?

处女座 chu3nu?zuo4 Virgo
绿 lu? green / chlorine
忧虑 you1lu? to worry / anxiety (about)
女儿 nu?er2 daughter
女婿 nu?xu? daughter's husband; son-in-law
孙女 sun1nu? son's daughter; granddaughter
外甥女 wai4sheng4nu? sister's daughter / wife's sibling's daughter
女朋友 nu?peng2you2 female friend / girlfriend
女朋友 nu?peng2you2 female friend / girlfriend
女性 nu?xing4 the female sex
女用内衣 nu?yong4nei4yi1 chemise

The same happens in the following files of the categories.zip:

astrology.txt
colournames.txt
emotions.txt
family.txt
love.txt
relationships.txt
thehumanbody.txt
womensclothing.txt

P.S. Perhaps you will find this thread interesting

You are right, I didn't know which number this u needed (it has points and an inverse hat), I hadn't noticed it occurred that frequently...
 
Hi, markv. It only occurs in those 12 entries (in the combined.txt file and distributed among those eight files of the categories.zip)

女 is nǚ (written nv3 for importing to Pleco)
绿 is lǜ (written lv4 for importing to Pleco)
虑 is lǜ (written lv4, for importing to Pleco)

So I think it should look like this (with tabs between Chinese, pinyin and definition, of course):

处女座 chu3nv3zuo4 Virgo
绿 lv4 green / chlorine
忧虑 you1lv4 to worry / anxiety (about)
女儿 nv3er2 daughter
女婿 nv3xu daughter's husband; son-in-law
孙女 sun1nv3 son's daughter; granddaughter
外甥女 wai4sheng4nv3 sister's daughter / wife's sibling's daughter
女朋友 nv3peng2you2 female friend / girlfriend
女朋友 nv3peng2you2 female friend / girlfriend
女性 nv3xing4 the female sex
女用内衣 nv3yong4nei4yi1 chemise

Been kind of busy and was reinstalling my PC, but finally got around to fixing this. I'll update the files in the original post.

Do you know how I can make sub-categories? I think that would be an improvement too.
 
Hi markv,

If I remember well, you can import subcategories using this format:

// clothing @ chinese-tools.com creates the category "clothing";
// clothing @ chinese-tools.com//shoes creates the subcategory "shoes" within the category "clothing";
// clothing @ chinese-tools.com//shoes//for rain creates the subcategory "for rain" within the subcategory "shoes".

// clothing @ chinese-tools.com
// clothing @ chinese-tools.com//shoes
皮鞋 pi2xie2 leather shoes
球鞋 qiu2xie2 athletic shoes
...............................................
...............................................
// clothing @ chinese-tools.com//shoes//for rain
雨鞋 yu3xie2 rain boots
靴子 xue1zi1 boots; Wellingtons
...............................................
...............................................

Hmm I only got an empty category for some reason. I'm going to just leave them seperately because I'm sort of busy atm. If someone else wants to do it that's great of course, I'll update the opening post.
 
Sorry, markv, I was wrong. What I have pasted below worked for me. You can also create categories and subcategories from Flashcards/Organize Cards. Good luck!

// Category/Subcategory/Subsubcategory

// New HSK/Level 1/Part 1
...............................................
...............................................
...............................................
// New HSK/Level 1/Part 1
...............................................
...............................................
...............................................
// New HSK/Level 1/Part 2
...............................................
...............................................
...............................................
// New HSK/Level 2/Part 1
...............................................
...............................................
...............................................
// New HSK/Level 2/Part 2
...............................................
...............................................
...............................................
// New HSK/Level 3/Part 2
...............................................
...............................................
...............................................
and so on ...
