Cursive Regular When used in decorative ornamentation, such as book covers, movie posters, and wall hangings, characters are often written in ancient variations or simplifications that deviate from the modern standards used in Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese or Korean.
Modern variations or simplifications of characters, akin to Chinese Simplified characters or Japanese shinjitaiare occasionally used, especially since some simplified forms derive from cursive script shapes in the first place.
The Japanese syllabaries of katakana and hiragana are used in calligraphy; the katakana were derived from the shapes of regular script characters and hiragana from those of cursive script.
In Korea, the post- Korean War period saw the increased use of hangulthe Korean alphabet, in calligraphy. Today, this style of Chinese writing is used predominantly in sealshence the English name. Although seals name chopswhich make a signature-like impression, are carved in wood, jade and other materials, the script itself was originally written with brush and ink on bamboo books and other media, just like all other ancient scripts.
However, because seals act like legal signatures in the cultures of ChinaJapanKoreaand Vietnamand because vermillion seal impressions are a fundamental part of the presentation of works of art such as calligraphy and painting, seals and therefore seal script remain ubiquitous.
Clerical script characters are often "flat" in appearance, being wider than the preceding seal script and the modern standard script, both of which tend to be taller than they are wide; some versions of clerical are square, and others are wider.
Compared with the preceding seal script, forms are strikingly rectilinear; however, some curvature and some seal script influence often remains. Most noticeable is the dramatically flared tail of one dominant horizontal or downward-diagonal stroke, especially that to the lower right.
Modern calligraphic works and practical applications e. The clerical script remains common as a typeface used for decorative purposes for example, in displaysbut other than in artistic calligraphy, adverts and signage, it is not commonly written.
In writing in the semi-cursive script, the brush leaves the paper less often than in the regular script. Characters appear less angular and rounder.
In general, an educated person in China or Japan can read characters written in the semi-cursive script with relative ease, but may have occasional difficulties with certain idiosyncratic shapes. Entire characters may be written without lifting the brush from the paper at all, and characters frequently flow into one another.
Strokes are modified or eliminated completely to facilitate smooth writing and to create a beautiful, abstract appearance.
Characters are highly rounded and soft in appearance, with a noticeable lack of angular lines. Due to the drastic simplification and ligature involved, this script is not considered particularly legible to the average person, and thus has never achieved widespread use beyond the realm of literati calligraphers.
The cursive script is the source of Japanese hiraganaas well as many modern simplified forms in Simplified Chinese characters and Japanese shinjitai.
It emerged from a neatly written, early period semi-cursive form of clerical script.
As the name suggests, the regular script is "regular", with each of the strokes placed slowly and carefully, the brush lifted from the paper and all the strokes distinct from each other.
The regular script is also the most easily and widely recognized style, as it is the script to which children in East Asian countries and beginners of East Asian languages are first introduced.
For learners of calligraphy, the regular script is usually studied first to give students a feel for correct placement and balance, as well as to provide a proper base for the other, more flowing styles.
In the regular script samples to the right, the characters in the left column are in Traditional Chinese while those to the right are in Simplified Chinese. These styles are typically not taught in Japanese calligraphy schools.Chinese writing, basically logographic writing system, one of the world’s great writing systems.
Like Semitic writing in the West, Chinese script was fundamental to the writing systems in the East. Until relatively recently, Chinese writing was more widely in use than alphabetic writing systems.

With this background as a person on the boundaries, I enter the study of the Christian Scripture, Paul s letter to the Romans in particular, with a strong concern about the identity crisis faced by Chinese Christian as both Chinese (overseas, marginal and Mainlander) and Christian. When you first study how to write in Chinese, you'll be confronted with a foreign pronunciation system, a foreign tonal system and a very foreign writing system. As an English speaker, you can normally have a good shot at pronouncing and reading words in other European languages, thanks to .

In Discovering History in China: American Historical Writing on the Recent Chinese Past, Paul A. Cohen contributes insight in to the field of Chinese historiography by investigating what American historians of the post-WWII era have written about China/5(4).
Written Chinese is not based on an alphabet or syllabary, so Chinese dictionaries, as well as dictionaries that define Chinese characters in other languages, cannot easily be alphabetized or otherwise lexically ordered, as English dictionaries are.
