General

Information is from dictionaries and other sources. Pinyin reflects Mandarin pronunciation; for some dialect names, it is no more than a polite fiction. Korean glosses are tentative. Comments and corrections welcome. Hover over Green Lettering Green lettering at this site hides a tool tip with glosses, further explanations, etc. Hover cursor to reveal. to see additional information.

The grebes are known as 䴙䴘 pìtī in Chinese (or sometimes pìtí, where the second character means 'cormorant' or 'pelican'). (If your browser can't see the characters, place your mouse over the top).

The word pìtī is one of that minority of Chinese words that is inherently polysyllabic. When written, however, it is split up into two characters, thus reinforcing the common perception that Chinese is a 'monosyllabic' language.

The characters to write pìtī in the traditional (鷿鷈) and simplified (䴙䴘) scripts are the same characters, although the placing of the radicals is different. The radical / for 'bird' is found on the right in the simplified characters, at the bottom and left respectively in the traditional characters as used in Taiwan.
