Chinese Symbols for Adjectives

In my study of Chinese I've never actually looked for a resource that groups symbols by type. I thought it would be an interesting exercise to do it myself. And so below are a list of about 200 Chinese Adjectives or "Stative Verbs". Below I've arranged them alphabetically by their English definition ideally making it easy to find the character(s) that you are looking for.

I've included the pinyin for the Mandarin pronounciation of each character or word.

One of the interesting points about Chinese is that it can almost seem like "plug and play." And for that reason it makes sense to list word types like Stative verbs all in one place.
