Requests for comment/Retrofitting hanja to Korean wikis as footnotes

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

Hello. (안녕하세요.) Acknowledging rejected proposal to open a Korean hanja Wikipedia years ago, may I kindly propose retrofitting hanja to Korean wikis as footnotes, please? A demonstration is being tested at voy:zh:朝鲜语会话手册 (Korean phrasebook on Chinese Wikivoyage). Using as the primary dictionary, it works well to help Chinese speakers including myself to learn Sino-Korean vocabulary much faster. Hopefully my proposal will generally keep pure hangul on Korean wikis and also accommodate hanja supporters with footnotes, as keeping separately from Korean Wikipedia will split the developments. Please discuss any technical concerns below. Thanks. (감사합니다.)--Jusjih (talk) 01:57, 9 March 2015 (UTC)[reply]

Using bots to detect Sino-Korean compounds[edit]

As one Korean sound tends to correspond to so many hanja characters, using bots to detect Sino-Korean compounds may work, but there are still homophones to watch out for.--Jusjih (talk) 21:17, 10 April 2015 (UTC)[reply]

Korean Wikipedia[edit]

As encyclopedic content must be verifiable, the feasibility to use bots to detect Sino-Korean compounds will require careful evaluation. Retrofitting hanja tends to be much easier in lists of proper nouns, but much harder in typical sentences.--Jusjih (talk) 21:17, 10 April 2015 (UTC)[reply]

Korean Wikisource[edit]

Even some modern South Korean legal texts do have do have hanja versions , like s:ko:대한민국 대한민국헌법 (제1호) (Constitution No. 1 of the Republic of Korea [1]. Clicking 漢 (han as in hanja) on the upper right corner of a legal text switches from pure hangul to hanja mixture. Then clicking 한 (han as in hangul) switches backward. Whether to add hanja footnotes in existing pages, to open separate articles for hanja mixtures, or to have a page side-by-side page like s:zh:Translation:大韓民國憲法 will require community discussion.--Jusjih (talk) 21:17, 10 April 2015 (UTC)[reply]
