shénme : 甚麼 or 什麼 ?

Posted by calkins February 7, 2008 in the Group General Discussion.

Does anyone know the correct traditional character for shénme (what)?

 

I was under the impression that 什 (shén) was the simplified version of the traditional character 甚 (shén).  I'm confused because I've seen the traditional character of shénme expressed both as 甚麼 and 什麼.

 

Anyone know which character is better to use?  Thanks!
