Chang Yong Zi Zixingbiao: A Study on the Understanding of Hong Kong Primary School Teachers on the Standardized Forms of Common Chinese Characters

潘慧如(Wai-Yu POON)

摘要

香港教育署語文教育學院在1986年出版了《常用字字形表》,對香港常用字字形提供了規範的標準。筆者利用問卷調查,發現本港不少教師未能完全掌握《常用字字形表》(九七年修訂版)標準字的形體。因此,本文嘗試利用漢字演變的規律去辨析字形,讓教師對《常用字字形表》(九七年修訂版)中的標準字有進一步的認識,由此亦檢視《常用字字形表》(九七年修訂版)中的字形是否須要修訂。

Abstract

The Hong Kong Institute of Language in Education published a popular book entitled Chang Yong Zi Zixingbiao about the standardized forms of common Chinese characters in 1986. A recent survey found that many local Chinese teachers did not agree with the forms of some Chinese characters listed in Chang Yong Zi Zixingbiao. In this light, the aim of this paper is to analyze the forms of some Chinese characters so as to provide those teachers with a better understanding of the forms of Chinese characters listed in Chang Yong Zi Zixingbiao. The analysis also found that the forms of some Chinese characters listed in this book should be revised.
