I’m happy to announce that the “Chinese Radical Show” series on JLC is finally wrapped up today!
The total radicals that I’ve introduced through this series are 52. As a matter of fact, the complete list of Chinese radicals are more than that. But I only list the ones that I perceive have the value to be memorized and eventually help you learn new characters with less effort.
It is possible that I might have missed certain “meaning radical ” that worth to be included in the list. By all means, if you find one, let me know. I do appreciate.
So here we go, all the 52 “meaning radicals” in one table.
I’d strongly suggest you to memorize all of them. What you need to memorize? Their shape and meaning, that’s all. It’ll be better if you can write them down on paper while memorizing them. Some readers are using sketching pad to practice online – also a brilliant idea! If you have an iPad, android, or any other touch screen tablet or phone, you can also practice directly with your finger. After all, the goal here is to get familiar with them, the more the better.
For each radical in the table, you can click through to the “Chinese Radical Show” page of that radical to see a bigger picture and check out more details.
In a few days, you’ll see a new series of lessons called “JLC Chinese Character Lesson”. In that lesson series, the homework you’ve done here will increase your efficiency on picking up new characters.
A little explanation of “meaning radicals” here: when I say “meaning radical”, it means these radicals only imply the meaning of the character. They have ZERO connection to the pronunciation of the characters.
You’ll get a better understanding on this when you see “JLC Chinese Character Lesson“.
Now go finish your homework please! :-)
Good night and see you tomorrow, my dear friends!
