comment How many forms can a Japanese verb take?
I would actually be quite interested to see an exhaustive list. Does anyone know of one?

comment Relation between kanji readings and meanings
This is a good start. It appears as if they are taking Jim Breen's Edict, finding all single-kanji words containing the desired kanji, and equating the reading of the kanji in that word with the meaning of the word. Failing the appearance of a more comprehensive resource, this is probably the approach I'll take. Thanks :)

@Chris Thanks for the link. I guess this falls under the "Data and Japanese Analysis" section. I've seen most of those resources before and they don't offer the kind of granularity I need (in that they at best offer only a very broad grouping of readings and meanings). But I'll take a look at the others and see if there's anything there. :)

comment Relation between kanji readings and meanings
@gibbon Thanks for your comment: (1) What I meant to say is that なま has multiple meanings, of which "raw" is the representative one (see: jisho.org/words?jap=%E3%81%AA%E3%81%BE) (2) いき is a reading according to jisho.org/words?jap=生き (although perhaps it is not common?) (3) Added more examples. (4) Thanks for mentioning that not all the readings do not relate to the meaning of the kanji itself. That slipped my mind. For the purposes of this question I am only interested in those that do relate. I am writing a dictionary program and I feel that this information would be useful.
