I am trying to study Japanese Kanjis using my limited knowledge of Chinese language.
Usually I can find a similar character (e.g. 国 → 国) or a very close one (e.g. 传 → 伝).
But when there is no equivalent I translate from Chinese to Japanese and pretty much most of the time I can find an equivalent character in terms of meaning.
But this one 涵 is so abstract I can't find its close relation, What would it be?
(ps: Are there are lot of Chinese characters that have no pair in the Japanese language?)
Update: Deconstructing the character 涵, is 氵(water) + 函 (box). The character seems to mean "holding water" (geological term, as earth retains water) but in a broader sense it simply means "to hold".
For instance in Chinese language 内涵 means "connotation" ([meaning] hold within).
Could it be 含?
