The "beikao" chapter (pp. 1585-1631) of the _Kangxi Zidian_ would be one
place to start for those unconfirmable that have pronunciations but no
meanings or having neither. e.g., 1585.9 (two U+4E36's, one over the
other, and all that overlaid across the leftmost stroke of U+4E43) and
1593.23 (U+5B80 above U+4E43), both of which have no pronunciation/meaning
information documented in Morohashi or _Hanyu Da Zidian_ either.
