This type of pronunciation guide is commonly found in old Chinese and Sino-Vietnamese dictionaries. Minh Nguyễn 💬 07:28, 24 May 2018 (UTC)


  •   Weak support (my support is weak only because my level in Chinese is weak). Could we define a constraint based on the pronunciation? Cdlt, VIGNERON (talk) 13:42, 29 May 2018 (UTC)
  •   Weak support. Ideally we want a datatype that takes exactly two Lexemes with a specified order. I guess series ordinal (P1545) and property constraints can help us on this, but this requires the use of a qualifier. This breaks down when we try to list multiple fanqies from different dictionaries - since Wikidata property values aren't ordered by design, the rendering can get quite ugly.

  •   Support I’m not familiar with fanqie (Q1899324), but data related to Han characters are important. Now Han characters are represented as items (instance of Chinese character (Q53764738)), so the data type should be item. --Okkn (talk) 18:51, 6 July 2018 (UTC)
  •   Comment marking as not ready - @Okkn: only one datatype can be used for a given property. The proposal template contains multiple datatypes. − Pintoch (talk) 08:15, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
  •   Support. This property is useful for Chinese characters found in rime dictionary (Q2191807) such as Jiyun (Q35792), Guangyun (Q2189818) and Qieyun (Q1271885). Readings of fanqie (Q1899324) can be obtained from the 6th and 7th character of wikt:Module:zh/data/ltc-pron, eg. wikt:Module:zh/data/ltc-pron/鈙. The other values in the module are for division and tone which are used for reconstructed middle Chinese readings (not required by this property). KevinUp (talk) 10:25, 21 July 2018 (UTC)
