The Chinese Character Decomposition: The Technological Process

Feb. 19th, 2017 | 08:39 am
posted by: Nicolay Shinkin in anu_students

The Chinese character decomposition is very understandable in its nature and serves for the purpose ‘make simple from complicated’.

If we take the Chinese character 门 mén ‘gate’, consisting of 3 strokes, everyone can easily break it down to simple radicals:

丶 zhǔ dot,
丨 gǔn line,
㇆ yǐ second,

What if we have to decompose a more complicated character, for example 齉 nàng ‘snuffle, twang, speak through one's nose’, consisting of 36 strokes?

Nothing difficult. We keep again the main principle of the Chinese character decomposition process ‘make simple from complicated’!

A quick review of the character 齉 nàng ‘snuffle, twang, speak through one's nose’ shows that it consists of a radical and a character:

1. Radical - 鼻 bí ‘nose’ - 14 strokes
2. Character - 囊 náng ‘bag, pocket’ - 22 strokes

We have to take into consideration that the Chinese radical鼻 bí ‘nose’ includes one rare component - 畁 bì ‘give, allow’.

The Chinese character 囊 náng ‘bag, pocket’ also includes one rare component - 吅 xuān ‘sue, argue’.

Having done such structural analysis of the Chinese character 齉 nàng ‘snuffle, twang, speak through one's nose’, the rest we have to do is to decompose each component into simple Chinese radicals and components. I repeat not into strokes but into the Chinese radicals and components.

Thus, the overall decomposition of the Chinese character 齉 nàng ‘snuffle, twang, speak through one's nose’ looks like the following:

齉 nàng ‘snuffle, twang, speak through one's nose’,

鼻 bí nose,
自 zì self,
丿 piě slash,
目 mù eye,
冂 jiōng down box,
三 sān three,
一 yī one,
二 èr two,

畁 bì give, allow,
由 tián field,
囗 wéi enclosure,
冂 jiōng down box,
十 shí ten,
一 yī one,
丨 gǔn line,
一 yī one,

兀 yóu lame,
一 yī one,
儿 ér boy,
丿 piě slash,
乚 yǐ second,

囊 náng bag, pocket,

一 yī one,
中 zhōng centre,
口 kǒu mouth,
冂 jiōng down box,
一 yī one,
丨 gǔn line,

冖 mì cover,
吅 xuān sue, argue,
口 kǒu mouth,
冂 jiōng down box,
一 yī one,
口 kǒu mouth,
冂 jiōng down box,
一 yī one,

井 jǐng well,
一 yī one,
廾 gǒng two hands,
一 yī one,
丿 piě slash,
丨 gǔn line,

衣 yī clothing (reduced radical without丶 zhǔ ‘dot’),
亠 tóu lid,
丶 zhǔ dot,
一 yī one,
匚 fāng right open box,
一 yī one,
丿 piě slash,


A lot of components, isn’t it? Now we understand all the components. And writing of the Chinese character 齉 nàng ‘snuffle, twang, speak through one's nose’ is not a problem for us any more: we just need to remember the sequence of the components!

The Chinese character decomposition saves a huge amount of time learning how to write a Chinese character!

Hi guys

It's been 3 years since I've graduated from ANU.  I don't want spam bots getting to this community, but I'm not in a position to stay on as maintainer.

If anyone is still reading this and wants to take over from me, please let me know.  Otherwise I will shut it down!

Thanks

Room Needed

Feb. 2nd, 2010 | 11:38 am
posted by: anycity in anu_students

Hi

I am I need of a room somewhere rather close to ANU as I don't drive.

I note that the poster before me has a grand total of 0 replies but I thought I would post anyway.

I am a 23 year old female 2nd year science student.

All the usual stuff applies I guess. I am tidy and quiet, I have money, I don't complain, I don't smoke and I'll clean things that could make others puke. I can't cook though :(

I am available to move in whenever.

Also, I am awesome. I swear.

sulfura at gmail dot com if you know of anything.

Thanks
