The most common 3,000 Chinese Characters
The most common 3,000 Chinese characters in order of frequency

• All characters are presented in falling statistical order with the most commonly used characters first.

• Alternative forms of the characters are specified within parentheses – in which case "F" marks full (or traditional) forms, "S" marks simplified (or modern) forms and "A" marks alternative forms (mostly special numerals).

• Pronunciations are specified according to Pinyin and written within brackets "[...]". After each given pronunciation, a number of possible translations are listed. If a character corresponds closely to a somewhat longer word (usually a word that contains the character in question), the longer word is given in the list of translations marked with parentheses and a "=".

• After the translation of each character, example words containing the character are often listed – these words are separated by semi commas. No guarantee is given that all the most common words are listed or that the given examples are very common.

• Some of the listed pronunciations are less used than others, and in those cases translations and examples may lack.

• Grammatical particles, classifiers and other special translations are marked with hooks "<...>".

• Curly brackets "{...}" are mostly used when giving references to characters that are similar to the listed ones either in shape. This is to help you avoid miswriting/misreading. The same marking is also used for references to characters with similar meaning but different pronunciation.

• Additional information of other sorts is sometimes given.

• If the characters are not displayed correctly, verify that the encoding is set to GB2312.
