RTK3 2nd edition keywords

#1
Fuaburisu. Would it be possible to add the changed keywords in RTK3 2nd edition? I think there is a thread on it in the RTK2/3 forum. As CharleyGarrett indicated there, the changes are:
1st edition 2nd edition
2263 interpretation - collect
2265 dedicate - devote
2416 elude - shirk
2419 remote - faraway

It would make the reviewing process a little bit less confusing sometimes..Wink

Edit: See Woelpad's post. He has compiled a comprehensive list of changes.

What a coincidence. Just yesterday I ran through my newly purchased copy of this book to verify any changes. I updated the Substitute keywords script, so if you want them fast, download the new version. Here's my list. Red lines are considered errata; the script will replace those with the corrected form regardless of the chosen edition.

Frame# 1st edition/2nd edition
2263 interpretation/collect
2264 receptable/receptacle
2265 dedicate/devote
2327 pan/pan-
2416 elude/shirk
2419 remote/faraway
2526 plotosid/sumac
2712 who?/who
2825 crucian/crucian carp
2836 kite falcon/black kite
2844 sitting in mediation/sitting in meditation
2953 feet/foot

Furthermore I've replaced the following frames with their more commonly used spellings.

2184 authochthonous/autochthonous
2338 racoon dog/raccoon dog
2940 resucitate/resuscitate
2991 stationary/stationery


Except for 2338 these are all spelling mistakes. Credits to Katsuo for reporting 2844, 2940 and 2991.

In the Corrections to the 2nd Edition, the following keywords changed:
2848 drag/tow
2965 bridle's bit (轡)/tinkling bell (鑾)

Note the altered kanji for 2965.

Thanks for the extensive list Woelpad! I may be mistaken, but am I correct that the Substitute keyword script requires 'Greasekit', which requires Safari/Firefox? I'm working with IE7, so I think I'll wait for a possible update within the RvtK website itself.

ps: Did you notice frames 2278/2279?

1st Ed. also had a mistake for no. 2991: "stationary" (= not moving) should be "stationery" (= paper, office supplies).

They didn't correct this in 2nd edition: frame 2991 is still 'stationary'.

Half correct. It requires Firefox and Greasemonkey. From what I hear, it doesn't work in Greasekit on Safari (nor Opera for that matter).

I see, the character for 2278 was duplicated in the next frame. There's no errata list yet for Vol. 3 on the nanzan website, so it's certainly worth reporting these things to the author/publisher. Which is what I'll do. Any other mistakes you noticed?

Added. Thanks.

Not yet. But I'll collect the errata that I find as I come across them while working my way through the book (which would be finished hopefully end of june).

It's a bit off topic (i.e. not keywords, and not 2nd Ed), but here are some things I noted when I went through the first edition of RTK3. I haven't seen the second edition, so I wonder how many have changed.

You'd make an excellent copy editor, Katsuo. Have you ever reported this to the authors or the publisher?

Regarding spelling, 2844 was corrected in 2nd Ed., 2940 not. I've added those to my list, both in my first post and in the script.

I'm copying your list here, adapting the page numbers. Lines in blue (few as they are) were corrected in the 2nd ed.; in green were corrected in the Corrections to the 2nd edition, 1st printing; in red are uncorrected errata.

Columns are: Page -- Number -- Notes

14 xxxx prim: sheik: if elbow requires 3 strokes as the notes say, the stroke count should be 11, not 10. Heisig however sticks to the modern counting as explained in the corrections.
14 2049 stroke count: 13 if the above is correct. Remains as is: See above.
14 2050 stroke count: 17 if the above is correct. Remains as is: See above.

Also off-topic, but here goes: Frame 2301 (widespread) displays the wrong kanji in 2nd edition, asuming that the water, fingerprint primitives are correct. Instead of fingerprint, sign of the snake is shown.

Confirmed. 汜 is such a rare kanji it doesn't even appear in edict. Kanji Networks gives it as distributary (branch descendent of a river), or shore, pool (endpoints of said distributary). The kanji for widespread is 氾. Added to my overview.

I've also added a few other things I noticed while reading through the comments in the book. See the lines for pg 5 (intro), 2602 and 2837.

Overview updated. You'll be pleased to hear that most of the spelling errors have been corrected. Corrected in 2nd ed.: 2426, 2748, 2810, 2969 and bone (Index VI).

I also added that nonplussed changed to visit since 4th ed. for 2291, as I assume that they use the latest edition for RtK1 at time of print. The page numbers in Index VI for RtK1 primitives seem to corroborate that; see the bone example which is probably a page number for the 5th ed (if anyone can confirm that: p. 228).

Missing kanji for 2964 added.

Scriptwise, I've upgraded 2264, 2327, 2712 and 2844 to errata status, which means the script will replace them with their corrected form regardless of edition.

As a result of our efforts here there's now an errata list for RtK3 available at the nanzan website. Heisig sounded extremely grateful and is thinking of prosecuting his own proofreaders as we speak (joke).

I've updated Reply #9 to reflect the corrections published in the pdf file. Noteworthy (and added to Reply #2) are the keyword change for 2848 ("drag" becomes "tow"), and the kanji and keyword change for 2965 ("bridle's bit" (轡) becomes "tinkling bell" (鑾)). Especially the altered kanji will pose a few headaches for programmers and websites. I'm myself wondering on how best to incorporate this into the Substitute script. I could wait of course to see how Fabrice will tackle this.

I noticed a few mistakes in the corrections themselves, which I will report to Heisig. I would ask to wait for these to be rectified before adding new ones.

2945 'cast a spell' 祟 - character shown in book is 'adore' from 1101, and the listed stroke count is wrong (should be 10, not 19).

2996 'hesitate' - stroke count is wrong (should be 21, not 14).

I think the next edition must be perfect, with all these corrections supplied by us...Smile

2334 (grandpa). Frame 2680 (exclamation) may be learned first
2336 (indecent). Expects frame 2569 (apprehensive) to be known
2338 (racoon dog) -> raccoon dog
2375 already uses kanji tryst (2417) as a primitive
2390 slanted eye has become 'net'
2406 lieutenant should be military officer.
2449 primitives: more box+stamp than craft+seal
2456: municipality instead of borough
2458: should be flesh, negative + FLOOR (FLOOR is missing)
2472: reference should be to 1888, not frame 1688
2499: lidded crock should be aerosol can.
2718: kanji is wrongly depicted
2719: kanji is wrongly depicted
2836: should be 'black kite' in 2nd edition instead of 'kite falcon'
2945: in book, wrong kanji depicted, primitives correct

Abaddon makes good on his promise. I saw you pass me by two third of the way through. Adding during the weekend must have given you an edge. Not a lot of competition otherwise. RtK3 is still not too popular.

Abaddon, what do you intend to say with 2836? The keyword in the frame is 'black kite', otherwise no one would know about the change, right?

I can ask Heisig about 2390. Katsuo took it for granted in 2929 and it even has its own group (2698, 2699), so perhaps there's a note somewhere in some RtK1 edition about this primitive.

Ignosco, thanks.

Adding corrections for 2375, 2406, 2456, 2472, 2718, 2719, 2945 and 2996.

Katsuo, I caught those. Asking to wait was a bit preposterous. I also have:

27 2130 prim: "meat" should be "flesh" -> not mentioned
53 2336 prim: Add note: "The second element appears in frame 2569" -> Changed, but not marked in red.
123 2862 prim: "negate" must be "negative"
138 2964 kanji 檜 in the upper right corner is still missing
141 2981 prim: "clothes" should be omitted -> not mentioned
293 R-3139 on-yomi: ケン example reading: けいけん, not ケン

311 2245 kanji: the vase on top is printed as a blob

woelpad: You're right. I think I wrote down 2836 since in RtK we use the 'kite falcon' keyword instead of 'black kite'. It doesn't have do to with the book itself, more with changing this keyword in RtK.

Another advise we could add is making a primitive for the 'generation / tree' combo, for example 'Tarzan' as proposed in the story of frame 2926 by Katsuo.

Yeah, I want to finish RTK3 as quickly as possible and get to the more important part of ...reading. Still, I'll be very happy when it will be finished. The review burden is quite large (also from RTK1) and I don't always have time to review each day, so the expired stack grows to be huge. Also, going on holidays doesn't help...Smile

I see you're nearly finished also, only 1/3 of RTK3 left. Must already feel like going down hill. It did for me though...

"Net" isn't explained anywhere in my editions of Heisig (RTK1 Ed. 3, RTK3 Ed. 1).

However, あみがしら (net) is used in Japanese for the horizontal "eye" radical. I prefer to use "net" because it is pictographic, good for story-building, and stops confusion with 目.

"Net" is named as a primitive in numbers 2390, 2539, 2698, 2699 and 2856.
Perhaps the first time it is used, 2390, a note could be added. Also, "net" is not in the index of RTK3 1st Edition. I haven't seen the 2nd Ed.

Reported errata added to my overview. I simplified the color scheme, using basically only 3 colors: Blue for errata corrected in the 2nd edition, green for those corrected in the corrections to the 2nd ed., red for uncorrected errata. The list does not contain new errata present in the corrections, as I hope those will be resolved swiftly.

Once again, most of the spelling mistakes were corrected in the 2nd ed. So yes, the proofreaders had something to show for their money.

Katsuo, nice remark about the status of Pluto as a planet. I added "dwarf planet" to the alternatives as that is another classification cited in the wikipedia article.

Not sure what you mean with 2330, 淀. 2nd ed. has it as water...determine, which looks correct; the leg kanji/primitive (足) doesn't come into play. Wrong primitives in 1st ed.?

The Plutoid classification is cutting-edge info. As of the IAU conference last week (11th June 2008), Pluto is now officially a "plutoid" (which is a sub-category of "dwarf planet"). BBC News article; Wikipedia: Plutoid. Whether that term will catch on with the general public, I don't know (as a Monty Python fan, I prefer to call it an Ex-planet).

Oops, I copied the reading index number by mistake. Should be:
52 2260 prim: "wooden leg" should be "leg"

Quote:I simplified the color scheme
Great. I found the cyan difficult to read.

I encountered another one in RTK3 2nd ed: frame 2991: the book gives as primitive bamboo, float. This should be bamboo, fiesta (2x)
