The Character 極


#1

Hello All,

Does anyone know why the character ji2 is written differently on Skritter and Pleco? On Pleco it is clear that the character between gou3 and you4 is le but on Skritter and my Iphone I’m not sure what the character is 》極

Sorry for the late reply. From my quick research, since it’s the traditional form, the one used outside of Mainland China (and in the rest of Asia) is indeed this one (極) Since Skritter uses Taiwan’s official dictionary for its traditional characters, that is why it shows as different. I’m not sure why Pleco shows a simplified form of it, but that’s the one they use in China, aside from 极.

Hope that kind of helps.
