What is JiShop
JiShop is a powerful electronic dictionary designed to provide
comprehensive information about the Chinese characters used in Japanese, known as kanji.
JiShop differs from other electronic kanji dictionaries by its original look-up
system, which fully employs the advantages of a computer. There are no key elements
in JiShop; all radicals (632 versus traditional 214)
are treated equally (read more...)
Features and screenshots
The look-up system used in JiShop provides multi-radical search based on the scrollable table of 632 kanji radicals. Left-click on a radical to select it for search.
To make navigation through the table simple and quick, the options of highlighting and compression are provided. Right-click on a radical to highlight radicals relevant to it. Right-click again or press the spacebar to compress.
You can search for a kanji by selecting all or some of its radicals from the table. There are two modes of search, and a number of additional settings.
JiShop also contains a phonetic dictionary. It stores compound words used in kanji dictionary entries, to illustrate the usage of characters. The phonetic dictionary can be also used independently to find compounds by their kanji writing, reading or meaning.
