Chinese characters are used in various forms in modern Chinese languages, Japanese, and, in South Korea, for Korean.
It is a common misconception that Chinese characters were originally carved; this stems from the fact that the earliest extant examples are in carved form on the so-called oracle bones, scapulomancy fortune-telling devices dating to the Shang dynasty.
Stroke order can therefore refer to the numerical order in which strokes are written, or to the direction in which the writing instrument (brush, pen, or pencil) must move in writing a particular stroke.
