View topic - Kanji vs Hanzi
I am ever so slightly curious about the differances between kanji and hanzi. Actually, i am a litle more curious than i lead you to believe ^_^ but I was wondering if any of you knew or if you could recommend a website that would explain it well. Thank you!!

The hanzi is a bit simpler that the kanji, right?
As far as pronunciation goes, despite differences between the languages and changes over time, quite a few of them sound similar, and retain a basically the same meaning.
漢字：馬 - uma 漢字：在 - zai
汉子：马 - ma (falling/rising tone) 汉子：在 - zai (falling tone)
And there are alot more like that. Actualy, the articles above probably can explaim that much better than I can.
