word lists (adapted from the Clavis Sinica website)


There are 46 word lists on the Clavis Sinica website collectively containing about 1146 Chinese words. These word lists have been reformatted for Pleco. Definitions are to be provided by your built-in dictionaries.

These flashcards show some limitations of the available dictionaries in Pleco. Even with all available Pleco-available dictionaries loaded, it is interesting to see which words were not contained in any of the dictionaries. These missing words have been extracted into a separate document for general reference. Although some of these missing words may be questionable as dictionary words, they are all familiar concepts/objects.
