Chinese radical show – “people” radical (3)

Posted by Grace Feng on March 15, 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 “people“:  This radical is transformed from character rén.

The characters that have this radical are mostly people related, such as:  他们 tā men (they), (you) etc.

    Hello Grace, I think ‘radical’ is actually 偏旁 piān páng.
