In this paper we propose a coding method of handprinted Chinese characters in which, defining a grammar, the process of block categorization is made to correspond to a process of sentential generation. We obtain two strings of production rules and block codes being equivalent to the descriptions of the structure and internal components of a character pattern, and a Chinese character is encoded effectively by the use of these two strings. It is shown that this coding method is available for the classification and discrimination of handprinted Chinese characters.
