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 “metal“. It came from the character 金 jīn (gold): 钅
Most characters that have this radical are names of a certain metal. The following are a few examples: 钢 gāng (steel), 钱 qián (money, coin), 锯 jù (saw), 铁 tiě (iron) etc.
