meaning of night/name/woman a 1000 years ago !! Reply

The most interesting stuff in kanji ;

 thats yoru, it means night
[might have come from ie-ru meaning “to house” because its dark, hence night but I discover after saying that, it comes from yo=jo=woman, and there is a more pressing reason as we will see]

You see ninben [亻] which is “trust/dependence” hence people = ningen. nin and gen both mean: people/person. [its a doubling of word not to lose meaning]

You see ukanmuri [宀] which is roof/ceiling hence house and you see hito = people [人] and walking = foot = ashi = long-step man [so walking, running to house] During night one has to return to house.

note: in ninben ben/hen means a symbol/part. its not same as gen/zen which is person/people

3 kanjis who wants to learn some Japanese/Chinese !!

始 。hajime = begin/start. A woman [女] is often considered auspicious in many occassions hence a woman’s voice is the start of many activities. See that square is mouth [口] and the other part is perhaps the nose which defines a person or woman’s voice. To reduce the confusion there is also the .

土去。 Now that you learned hajime see that nose is elongated in the 2nd kanji here which means sa = 去 = go.

[this has become Indian: ja = go and the original Chinese: qu is phonetically go, hence English definitely derives here]

Reg. the sa = 去 you see there is a nose and a tsuchi = 土 = ground. What does a person do on ground? He walks .. so this is leave/go. Now why woman = onna = jo = josei = 女 [this jo has become Odia: jhia=girl] This is so because you see two 人 cris-crossed, girls like to hang out together hence this symbol. {other forms of bondage will differ slightly because base unit is }

Who wants some more kanji? 名 夜 女; that 3 gives name, evening/night, woman. see the 2nd one is a ninben [亻] as explained: nin/gen is person and ben is “a part found in kanji”  so this represents trust/person/dependence and see its moulded like person itself = .

If you see carefully yoru 夜= night, has ninben: 亻 and ukanmuri: 宀 which represents ceiling/roof [hence by implication sometimes house] whats left is a onna = . The onna is slightly cutoff and the cut portion goes into the one that remains. So its a dependent people instead of woman-bonding. dependent people means relatives, those who live under the roof/house and are related [亻: relation/trust]. So Overall related-people (– living together people) return to their house during night. One can also see another meaning: like darkness/night woman’s nature is a secret as is often socially (I am not judging right or wrong) upheld. We are talking about 1000 years ago what society was thinking. They were thinking much harmoniously although they were not as advanced as we are. They were not having social issues like we do now (– atleast in forms we do have now). Ours is an imbalanced society in this century. So night was like deep secret of woman or people who are bonded together and live under the roof. (– pretty evident in the kanji)

Now that we see what night/evening is like in kanji how is  related here? This one is na/mei/namae = name [see where the English derives? Also Odia: na and nama are used] Its the mouth [] and evening together. In dark one has to call/speak the name of a person to communicate because one can’t see. Hence name is kanjified like this. But also one can see people+voice/spoken. People are called by their names.

Also not only yoru seems to come from ie-ru {go home hence night} but it might also mean joru = yoru which is “like a woman” [secret, dark, unknown, strange]
