A question for the friends of ethymology out there: When have the last new Hanzi been "invented" and put into use? Qing-Dynasty? Republic?
Or are there even still new characters being designed today (which I actually do not expect due to the related encoding consequences)?
I ask because I am still amazed that there is 熵 out there for entropy, but maybe it had another meaning once...
New lesson idea? Please contact us.
