Is there a glossary of sorts for Go terms in Japanese/Chinese/Korean?

And I mean one that displays all the equivalent variants, like
(i)Go= Weiqi= Baduk,

because the best I can find is this :-/

SL has four separate glossaries:

https://senseis.xmp.net/?GoTerms
https://senseis.xmp.net/?JapaneseGoTerms
https://senseis.xmp.net/?ChineseGoTerms
https://senseis.xmp.net/?KoreanGoTerms

I could try to suture them together. I only speak English, though, and many people on the forum speak at least English and a CJK language.

It’s weird if such a glossary doesn’t exist, isn’t it?

And some terms are and aren’t the same, if I tried to Excel that 4-way thing I would probably mess up half of it.

I’ll have a go, but I’ll make it a wikipost.

This table brought to you by linguists gang (well, really by bugcat)

If applicable, style should be sim. / trad. for Chinese, with accented pinyin.

Also. the ou rather than ō-style romaji is preferred.

oh wow

Nice one. How about marking non-English words that English non-purists regularly use in bold? (Say: atari, hane, tsumego, tesuji, tenuki)

I’ll certainly check it :slightly_smiling_face:

As for the romanization of Korean terms, Hangul is extremely easy to learn. You can fully learn it in 2 hours just by reading the Wikipedia article: Hangul - Wikipedia This is the simplest writing system in the universe (it was invented because the Chinese writing system is hard), I strongly recommend learning it. This is probably why they didn’t bother romanizing it on Sensei’s Library.

Why don’t you add the romanisations, then, if it’ll only take you a few minutes? :D

I’m not going to be touching the table for a little while.

Although I avoid romanization as much as possible, for people who don’t feel inclined to learn Hangul, it’s probably better to just add it.

If there isn’t a native speaker here to assist us, I’ll probably have to do. (bare minimum reporting for duty)

I added the Korean romanizations (there is and isn’t a standard about that, so I went with what I find most practical. Also, I didn’t emphasize subtle pronunciation differences, since this isn’t the purpose of this thread, just be able to argue with Korean opponents in a semi-coherent way :wink: )

Note to @richyfourtytwo: proper (move) = honte was already in the table, so I’ll remove that last row.

Plus I got the language wrong. :smiley: That’s why I love wikis. One can contribute even with bits of half-knowledge without having to fear much.

Sorting alphabetically (based on Japanese or English???) might be a good idea.

Ha! I was going to say “I will do it in the morning, but you will already have learned it by then” – and you actually did!

I can sort with excel easily, so if we can agree what to sort on, I’ll do it. Any opinions?

I actually know Hangul anyway, I wouldn’t learn it for a wiki :woman_shrugging:.

Be my guest. I’m all worked out~

You may have noticed that I only got down to P in the English Go Terms article.
