    Why do you think so? Where did you hear that?:confused: I'm sure you know 码数 (=尺码 ) is "size" and 数码 is "digital".

    Oh, it's clear now. Thanks, Ghabi! :)
    码数 wasn't in the dictionary I checked
    数码 also has the definition of "number" so I thought it might work in the context of size as well

    Ah, I see. Sorry, I didn't know 数码 is defined this way in dictionaries. I am not aware of this usage. I only know it as a neologism for "digital" as in digital camera.

    Analysing every character of a word is often helpful to understand the word.

    数,number
    码,numeral number
    digit →digital, number

    So basically
    数码=digital ≠码数
    数码=码数=number :D

    Analysing every character is OFTEN helpful, but I don't think it helps to understand these two. It only makes things more complicate. To be honest, I don't even know what you are talking about this time...:eek:

    In my opinion, 码数 is not technically a word, it is the combination of 尺码 and 数字.
    Therefore, 码数=the number of your size

    數碼 numerical code
    碼數 code number (for size)

    「數」常用於計算 (e.g., 算數,算化合物的「價數」).
    「碼」常用於定位 (e.g., 定碼,定產品的「價碼」;「數碼」的碼 = 「數位」的位).

    「數碼」是一種 (數字構成的)「碼」(code),可用於定位 (for reference or identification; e.g., 漢字數碼).
    「碼數」是一種 (尺碼的、某標準單位的)「數」(number), 可用於計算 (for calculation or counting; e.g., 平均碼數).

    I just wanted to say that 数 and 码 and digit/digital meant the same. They have same original and extended meanings.

    我覺得「碼」(從石,馬聲) 的原意與「石」有關,譬如「碼頭」的「碼」(石垛)。 船繫於「碼」以定其位 (也就是我之前提過的「定位」概念).

    一檔事的「檔」(用來固定或分隔的木條), 一樁事的「樁」(木樁),一碼事的「碼」(石垛), 都可用來固定物件 (e.g., 拴馬於樁,繫舟於碼).
    数码 also has the definition of "number"
    覺得譯成 number 的「碼」, 是「目」的概念 (《漢典·目》, e.g., 數目、名目).
    《國語辭典·數碼》 計數的數
    「碼」是「名」, 是「字」, 是名號、字號、稱號、編號、 電話號碼的「號」, 不是「量」.

    A: 這次進貨的數多少?
    B: 一八四零七 ==> 無衡量單位(unit of measurement). 即使隱含單位, 亦須已知, 大家心知肚明,故可不用多說.

    A: 這次進貨的數多少?
    B: 18,407 公斤. ==> 須加單位.
