comment Decomposition of kanji
Everyone thinks about kanji of being made up from several components, but I've never come across a systematic way to decompose a kanji into its parts. It seems like Unicode has enough types to describe where the (unique type of) radical occurs. Maybe that's why there are only 12 types.

comment Decomposition of kanji
@ssb Fine, but I guess it's likely that a kanji exists, which has a "top, bottom left, bottom right" (or similar) decomposition, where the bottom two characters don't form a character.

We keep all questions about study methods, resources, computing (and more) off the main site. I answered your question about how to enter words that are not in your IME, which is the method used by most Japanese. If you have a question about your Windows 7 IME dictionary tool, then it is considered off-topic. You're welcome to raise this issue on meta and the community can decide whether we want to answer such questions on the main site. (I think it's unlikely, but the only way to find out is to ask and you'll find out why such questions are considered off-topic at the moment.)

@ssb Do you have a useless comment about 姦? Twice 女 doesn't seem to exist, or is that irrelevant?

comment Decomposition of kanji
@dainichi I'm asking about decomposition of Japanese kanji, i.e. whether 森 should be decomposed as "top, lower left, lower right" or as "top, bottom". How is this not about the Japanese language? A good answer needn't even necessarily mention Unicode.

I don't know if you noticed, but こうらい is an exceptional reading: the kanji 高麗 would naively be read コーレー; グース (or グス) is not too far from コショー.

That would give "j­ūdō is a sport where every person throws at the same angle, jūdo, as might be expected from jūdō".
