It's actually kind of nice that the up and down symbols seem to be pointing in the direction they mean. That makes it a bit easier to remember
Wait till you see the amount of readings this innocent looking thing has...
Logics of Kanji since the Bronze Age in China.
how does it sound? うえ?
In English, the opposite of 'up' should be 'down', while the opposite of 'bottom' is 'top'. You are mixing them here. Does shita mean both 'up' and 'top'?
Yes, (Though Ue is up, Shita is down)
上 - Up, Above, Over, Top, Summit, On (surface)
下 - Below, Down, Under, Bottom, Beneath
this doesn't accept top though, was also wondering about that.
Why is "on" not accepted?
It should be. As someone else says, "on" is accepted in their constructed sentences. It seems this bit of Japanese isn't well developed.
I reported it
Because it literally mean 'up'. You need to add a 'no' to indicate that it is on something.
when a chair is on the table they use ue too
I said "over" and got it wrong...?
The audio sound like うべ, but the true pronunciation is うえ
Top is also 上
I translated as 'top' and was marked wrong
To memorize this character well; it looks like a plant with a branch growing out of soil.
上 on or above.
In some swiss german dialects "ue" also means up, although with a different u. For the few swiss germans here, this one's for you
What about the house? Isn't いえtoo?
This kanji is ue, not ie
