Thanks, Contraine! Would many people know how to pronounce it?No, the character is rarely used in modern Chinese.
Oh, you're right. Thanks for the correction! (Not sure how I got the provinces mixed up there) I've corrected the original post above.It's actually in Zhejiang province. It's very rare to see this character in modern Chinese.
衢 is a relatively uncommon Chinese character, and its pronunciation is not immediately obvious even to many native speakers. Still, a well-educated native speaker or someone familiar with classical literature or certain place names would likely recognize and know how to pronounce it.Thanks, Contraine! Would many people know how to pronounce it?
Recently I've been reading "劝学" by 荀子, and there's a sentence that goes: 行衢道者不至 (On a path astray one finds not the destination sought).
