word of the day: 体 karada and 休 kyuu 。
note 1; 亻this fellow is whats called ninben, which means “person-like part-of-a-kanji”, a part-of-a-kanji is called, a radical, which means a component of a kanji. This I have described in other kanji based articles. A composite kanji is often created from various parts, with certain rules, such as what goes, on left, what goes, on right, what on top etc, and accordingly such parts are known by 7-types of radicals or ben or hen. eg shimesuhen (礻as seen in 神). eg as you see in (体 karada and 休 kyuu, we see a; 亻) .
note 2; We also should be clear that certain rules may never have been passed explicitly. eg what caused a creation of certain kanjis. A-least to my knowledge, this is not so; so I learned kanjis, slightly more than a year ago, and now there are tons, of kanji discoveries, that is apparent rules that govern how and why these kanjis, might have been packed into a composite kanji. In-fact I have recently grown them, calling, as Kanji Equations.
This site is now filled with tons of such example, and the idea, is to share some kanji discoveries, as they happen, since that can’t follow, each time a new finding is made, a rigorous explanation from beginning, if you happen to rad kanji based findings here and understand the simple observations I have been making, pass them onto your interested networks, who might then keep track of anything they would be interested to know. In essence there would be new rules, perhaps never known, this site boasts a few of such.
