Chinese radical show – “home” radical (42)

Posted by Grace Feng on August 31, 2012

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 “home“: 户 hù – .

Most characters that have this radical are related to home or indoor in one way or another. The following are a few examples: 房 fáng (house),  扁 biǎn (flat), 扇 shàn (fan [mostly used indoor]), 扉 fēi (door), etc.

    Hi Grace. This character, 户, is so close to the character you previously introduced for body/corpse 尸, that I was wondering if in ancient China there was some relationship between them?

      Good question, I don’t know the answer yet, but that’s my take-away for today. I’ll update if I can find something helpful…

      By the way, sorry for my late response, just got back from a three day camping trip over the weekend…

    你喜欢去野营吗?你平时去哪里野营,加拿大因大自然而有名但是我觉得有点儿危险吧。你们那边有凶狠的野生动物,像黑熊啊,灰熊啊,美洲狮啊。你一定要注意安全!

      我是喜欢野营, 每年都会在夏季的时候去好几次. 有时在加拿大,有时在美国. 去美国的时候多些, 因为可以顺便购物. :-) 我去过好些营地都在黑熊的活动范围, 可我一只都没碰到过,只见过鹿和狼…
