In this series you’ll meet Chinese radicals that frequently appear in Chinese characters. To make it simple for you to memorize, I’ll just simply make a beautiful card with the radical on it’s left, and one English word to explain what it symbolize on the right.
In Chinese, radical is called 部首 bù shǒu or 偏旁 piān páng. Today we’ll learn the radical that is related to “hall, broad sheltered place” – 广 guǎng: 广
This radical is placed on the top left position of a character. Most characters that have this radical are related to sheltered wide place, hall etc.. The following are a few examples: 庆 qìng (celebrate [in a wide place]), 库 kù (garage [car parked in a shelter], storage room), 床 chuáng (bed [wood bed under the roof] ) etc.
