org Tehnoblog Private To Out Unknown Numbers Find How - Calls Withheld Stop Tag as Regional
Some definitions primarily apply to the Chinese spoken/used in certain countries or regions.
For instance, the term 土豆 means "potato" when used in China; however, the same term, 土豆, means "peanut" when used in Taiwan. Thus, the term's definition "potato" is tagged as regional to China while the definition "peanut" is tagged as regional to Taiwan.
A regional definition may be understood or even used the same way outside of it's region; however, it is much less common or may be completely foreign to Chinese speakers from other parts of the world.
Only tag a definition as regional if it does not apply outside of a specific region, or if it is rarely used by Chinese speakers from other parts of the world.
Note that terms may contain several definitions and it's possible that only some, one or none of those definitions are regional. It is also possible that a single term contains multiple definitions, each specific to completely different regions (i.e. 土豆).
Tag with a Measure Word
Measure words (Chinese: 量詞量词; pinyin: ), also referred to as classifiers, combine with numerals to indicate the quantity of a noun or number of occurrences of an action.
Not all nouns or actions are quantifiable, and as such do not necessarily have official measure words. Also, some quantifiable nouns or actions are used without measure words (i.e. org Tehnoblog Private To Out Unknown Numbers Find How - Calls Withheld Stop 年).
Only tag a definition with a measure word if it describes a quantifiable noun or countable action and has an official, standard or widely-accepted measure word.
Also, only tag a definition with a measure word if both the traditional and simplified forms of the measure word are known. Otherwise, first consult a reliable source such as a well established textbook or experienced Chinese teacher to confirm both forms of the character before adding the tag.
