In kanji Benkyou 界 has the kunyomi: sakai

I looked in 3 different places and all showed this kanji to have no kunyomi, only the onyomi: kai.

That must be a mistake (I'll write it down to fix in the morning)

But a look at my kanjigen shows sakai is a name reading.

EDIT: BTW, if you are in VA, you're up early (or late). My dogs felt they needed to join the neighborhood 犬の会議. that's why I'm up!

heh, I work the audit shift. I still have 2 more hours of work left :)

I don't normally look up name reading of kanji unless I'm specifically looking up a name. They just make kanji more confusing than they already are. When I was looking in wwwjdic and clicked on the link to the hanzi/kanji database, it timed out, or I might have seen the name reading.

Yeah, years ago when I typed that, I probably saw the name reading and just stuck it in as a kun reading.

You can pat yourself on the back. I stealthily hid the sakai there to see how long it would take for an observant visitor to call me on it. :D

Looking at Kanji Rakuen, the reading does exist but it is "outside the list" meaning that even Japanese are not supposed to know it. To avoid confusion, it would probably make sense to remove it.

Please note that:
1. English is not my first language.
2. I am not Japanese. I am prone to making mistakes so please point them out if you see any.

さかい【境・界】
   ?互いに接する所。?物事の分かれ目。?ある特定の場所。(?)border


「界」が「さかい」と使われることは少ないのですが、辞書にも出ている読み方ではあります。

Since the kanji area is mainly for beginners and not a kanji reference site for advanced students, it would be best to remove it. (done way too early this morning)
