For detailed instructions, see the Component builder how to guide.
To find any kanji, first try to identify the components it is made up of. Once you have identified any component, search for it in any of three ways:
  1. Draw it in the drawing area
  2. Type the name in the text area
  3. Look for it in the list
Example: look up 漢
  • Notice that 漢 is made of several components: 氵 艹 口 夫
  • Draw any of these components (one at a time) in the drawing area, and select it when you see it
  • Alternatively, look for a component in the list. 氵 艹 口 each have three strokes; 夫 has four strokes
  • If you know the meanings of the components, type any of them in the text area: water (氵), grass (艹), mouth (口) or husband (夫)
  • Keep adding components until you can see your kanji in the list of matches that appears near the top.
Kanshudo Component Builder Drawing Help
The Kanshudo Component Builder can recognize any of the 416 components listed in the chart below the drawing area. Tips:
  • Draw a component in the center of the area, as large as you can
  • Try to draw the component as it appears in the kanji you're looking up
  • Don't worry about stroke order or number of strokes
  • Don't draw more than one component at a time

Grammar detail: だけの力量(りきりょう)がある

だけの力量(りきりょう)がある - have the capacity to do
114 words
My current mastery of this grammar point:
LOG IN to view grammar mastery data
plain form verb
is a set expression meaning
have the capacity to do ~; be able to do
He is equal to the task.
The usual meaning of だけ is 'only'. So one might expect that a literal translation of this expression would be 'is only able to do ~'. In fact, the implication of だけ here is closer to 'at least ~' or 'more than ~'. This can be seen in the set phrase できるだけ, which means 'as much as one can do' not 'only what one can do'.
Because だけの does not change the meaning, but only adds to it, the expression
がある is also often used with the same meaning:
He was equal to the job.
