Chinese Vocab List
A list of Chinese vocabulary words with definitions, pronunciations, and example sentences. Under a CC-BY-SA license. See chinese_vocab_list.yaml for the list itself.
Used by the Chinese Prestudy Anki addon. See this blog post for more details.
There are a few ways to contribute:
- Making changes to the source code in
- Making changes files in
subtlex_dupes.yamllists words that are redundant with other words. For example,
身上: 身in that file means that instead of learning the word "身上", someone should just learn the word "身".
preferred_entries.yamlindicates which entries from CC-CEDICT are the best to use for each word. Only needed when you increase the size of the vocab list and it complains because it finds a word with multiple definition. Note: some words have multiple meanings that are worth learning but are split across different entries in CC-CEDICT. For example, 只 and 面. I don't have a good way to represent these in

If you change
contrib_files/, be sure to run
make chinese_vocab_list.yaml and check in both your changes and the generated changes to
If you change
chinese_vocab_list.yaml, there might be a bit of delay merging your PR because right now I don't have a way to ensure that when someone makes manual changes, they won't be overwritten the next time someone re-generates the list. I'll have to figure out a workflow when we get there.
