[1] one

[2] two

In Chinese characters, the number one is laid on its side, unlike the Roman numeral I which stands upright. As you would expect, it is written from left to right. [1] When this character is used as a primitive element, the keyword meaning is often discarded, since it is too abstract to be of much help. Instead, the single horizontal stroke takes on the meaning of floor or ceiling, depending on its position: if it stands above another primitive, it means ceiling; if below, floor. Like the Roman numeral II, which reduplicates the numeral I, the character for two is a simple reduplication of the horizontal stroke that means one. The order of writing goes from above to below, with the first stroke slightly shorter. [2] And like the Roman numeral III, which triples the numeral I, the character for three simply triples the single horizontal stroke. In writing it, think of "1 + 2 = 3" (一+二=三) in order to keep the middle stroke shorter. [3] This character is composed of two primitive elements, mouth 口 and human legs 儿, both of which we will meet in the coming lessons. Assuming that you already knew how to write this character, we will pass over the “story” connected with it until later. Note how the second stroke is written left-to-right and then top-tobottom. This is consistent with what we have already seen in the first three numbers and leads us to a general principle that will be helpful when we come to more complicated characters later on: WRITE NORTH-TO-SOUTH, WEST-TO-EAST, NORTHWEST-TO-SOUTHEAST. [5] As with four, we shall postpone learning the primitive elements that make up this character. Note how the general principle we just learned in the preceding frame applies to the writing of the character for five. [4]

Note that the first stroke “cuts” clearly through the second. This distinguishes seven from the character for spoon 匕 (FRAME 453), in which the horizontal stroke either stops short or, depending on the font, extends just slightly beyond the vertical stroke. [2] As a primitive, this form takes on the meaning of diced, i.e. “cut” into little pieces, consistent both with the way the character is written and with its association with the character for cut [切] to be learned in a later lesson (FRAME 85). Just as the Arabic numeral “8” is composed of a small circle followed by a larger one, so the character for eight is composed of a short line followed by a longer line that leans towards it without touching it. And just as the “lazy 8” ∞ is the mathematical symbol for “infinity,” so the expanse opened up below these two strokes sometimes carries the sense in Chinese of something “all-encompassing.” Note how the printed character on the left and the hand-drawn character below differ somewhat in form. Be sure to imitate the hand-drawn form when you practice writing. [2] If you take care to remember the stroke order of this character, you will not have trouble later keeping it distinct from the character for power 力 (FRAME 732). [2] When this character is used as a primitive, we shall take it to refer to the game of baseball, the meaning being derived from the nine players who make up a team. Turn this character 45° either way and you have the x used for the Roman numeral ten. [2] As a primitive, this character sometimes keeps its meaning of ten and sometimes signifies needle, this latter derived from the character for needle 针 (FRAME 283). Since the primitive is used in the character itself, there is no need to worry about confusing the two. In fact, we shall be following this procedure regularly. Like several of the first characters we shall learn, the character for mouth is a clear pictograph. Since there are no circular shapes in the characters, the square must be used to depict the circle. [3] As a primitive, this form also means mouth. Any of the range of possible images that the word suggests-an opening or entrance to a cave, a river, a bottle, or even the largest hole in your head-can be used for the primitive meaning. This character is intended to be a pictograph of the sun. Recalling what we said in the previous frame about round forms, it is easy to detect the circle and the big smile that characterize our simplest drawings of the sun-like those yellow badges with the words, “Have a nice day!” [4] Used as a primitive, this character can mean sun or day or a tongue wagging in the mouth. This latter meaning, incidentally, derives from an old character meaning something like “sayeth” (see FRAME 1499) and written almost exactly the same, except that the latter is more square in shape (曰) than sun (日). In any case, as a primitive element the shape will alter according to its position in the full character and this distinction will become irrelevant.

月 田


[13] month


[14] rice field

目 mù //Remembering Simplified Hanzi/RSH1_02
[15] eye

This character is actually a picture of the moon, with the two horizontal lines representing the left eye and mouth of the mythical “man in the moon.” (Actually, the Chinese see a hare in the moon, but it is a little farfetched to find one in the character.) And one month, of course, is one cycle of the moon. [4] As a primitive element, this character can take on the sense of moon, flesh, or part of the body. The reasons for the latter two meanings will be explained in a later chapter. Another pictograph, this character looks like a bird’s-eye view of a rice field divided into four plots. Take care in writing this character to get the order of the strokes correct. You will find that it follows perfectly the principle stated in FRAME 4. [5] When used as a primitive element, this character’s most common meaning is rice field, but now and again it will take the meaning of brains from the fact that it looks a bit like that tangle of gray matter nestled under our skulls. Here again, if we round out the corners of this character and curve the two middle strokes into the shape of an iris, we get something resembling an eye. [5] As a primitive, the character keeps its sense of eye, or to be more specific, an eyeball. When placed in the surroundings of a complex character, the primitive can be turned on its side (罒) and take on the additional meaning of a net.

古 胡

gǔ hú

The primitive elements that compose this character are ten and mouth, but you may find it easier to remember it as a pictograph of a tombstone with a cross on top. Just think back to one of those graveyards you have visited, or better still, used to play in as a child, with ancient inscriptions on the tombstones. This departure from the primitive elements in favor of a pictograph will take place now and again at these early stages, and almost never after that. So you need not worry about cluttering up your memory with too many character “drawings.” [5] Used as a primitive element, this character keeps its keyword sense of ancient, but [16] care should be taken to make that abstract notion as graphic as possible. ancient Everyone knows what a new moon is: the first phase when the moon is illuminated 0%. So, presumably, an ancient moon, like the one in this character, is lit up at 100% wattage. And we all know what that means: [17] recklessly people tend to get a little “loony” and start acting recklessly. [9]

Each of them has come to represent one of the common connotations of this key word: the sun. the triplication of a single element in this character indicates “everywhere” or “heaps of. the bright insight of the clear thinker. five mouths =I. Look at the character and you can see how the ten leaves are way too much for the one small mouth to handle. In writing the primitive elements three times. she didn’t take the trouble to grind them up with her mortar and pestle. the bright intuition [21] míng bright of the poet and the seer. Hence. [7] The first companion that God made. [12] As in the character for sparkling. as the Bible story goes. there are two that the biblical story of creation has God set in the sky: the sun to rule over the day and the moon to rule the night. “everywhere”). produced for the “masses” of open mouths waiting like fledglings in a nest to [24] pǐn goods “consume” whatever comes their way. In this character we see two suns. which has no less than five mouths: 2 nostrils. one atop the other. note again how the rule for writing given in FRAME 4 holds true not only for the strokes in each individual element but also for the disposition of the [23] jīng sparkling elements in the character as a whole. [5] There are a number of characters for the word I. but is shoveling them into your mouth just as they came off the tree.叶 吾 朋 明 唱 晶 品 昌 yè [18] leaf wú [19] I (literary) The Chinese are famous for taking a leaf and turning it into medicine. and 1 mouth. So when you hear the key word sing. 2 ears. The problem is. if we are not careful. Focus on the number this way: since we speak of prosperous times as sunny. think of the Vienna Boys’ Choir or chàng[22] sing the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the character is yours forever. Just like a diamond. Upon seeing her. Adam exclaimed. to give the sense of something sparkling all over the place. In this character. but this one is restricted to literary use in Chinese. [8] [20] companion“Flesh . This character is a picture of a tiny sun in three places (that is. [9] What we mentioned in the previous two frames about three of something meaning “everywhere” or “heaps of” was not meant to be taken lightly. Now the one place in our bodies that all five senses are concentrated in is the head. [11] What else can the word sparkling suggest if not a diamond? And if you’ve ever held a diamond up to the light. péng of my flesh!” And that is precisely what this character says in so many strokes. for which the sense of a “perceiving subject" should do just fine. is easily confused in memory with the three suns of sparkling. [8] Among nature’s bright lights. you will have noticed how every facet of it becomes like a miniature sun. [8] This one is easy! You have one mouth making no noise (the choirmaster) and two mouths with wagging tongues (the minimum for a chorus). and the moon. there are no less than ten different types of leaves that go into the concoction that the herbal doctor is stuffing into your mouth. was Eve. which. what could be more prosperous than a sky with two suns in it?

We need a sufficiently stuffy connotation for the key word. we think of what has been massproduced--that is to say.

we shall ignore the pictograph and imagine sunflowers with needles for stems. which was used to make the abstract key [26] early word early more graphic. Thus: ten “plus” ten “plus” ten [28] generation = thirty. this character takes the meaning of sunflower.” Now all you have to do is learn how to write it. If you can imagine the sun poking its head out through a hole in your floor. This time. If you can picture two seams running down that great red sun. if you look at it. which we shall. [6] sun We generally consider one generation as a period of thirty (or ten plus ten plus ten) years. is that the part of the body that keeps the brain in working order is the stomach. [5] convex . Actually. showing favoritism towards its namesake. [5] Maybe this helps you see how the Chinese have no trouble keeping convex distinct from concave. [5] You will need to refer back to FRAMES 13 and 14 here for the special meaning of the two primitive elements that make up this character: brain and flesh (part of the body). by the time you are done with this book. When writing it. If it doesn’t feel all that strange now. There are very few times you will have to write it. which would make it. the Land of the Rising Sun. The sense of early is easily remembered if one thinks of the sunflower as the early riser in the garden. [5] You couldn’t have asked for a better key word for this character! Just have a look at it: a perfect image of a concave lens (remembering. If you look at this character in its completed form--not in its stroke order--you will see three tens. however. which is pretty much what this character depicts. of course. think of the lower horizontal lines as “addition” lines written under numbers to add them up. which can be plucked and used to darn your socks. [32] it will. Note the odd feeling of the fourth stroke. in defiance of botanical science. a name easily associated with ]apan’s national flag. from China’s point of view. you have a slightly irreverent--but not altogether inaccurate--picture of how the sport has caught on [27] rising in the Land of the Rising Sun. since it begins with the element for sun and is held up on a stem with leaves (the pictographic representation of the final two strokes). complete with its own [31] concave little “cave. however. that the characters square off rounded things). shines on it before all the others (see FRAME 10). What the character says. call the sunflower. To keep the elements in proper [29] stomach order. The key word here immediately suggests the islands located to the east of China. it’s a lot easier doing it with a pencil than reading it in a book. you [30] daybreak will have an easier time remembering this character. [9] The obvious sign of daybreak is the sun peeking out over the horizon. and then imagine it sitting on a baseball bat for a flagpole. when you write this character think of the brain as being “held up” by the flesh. because the sun.早 旭 世 胃 旦 凹 凸 zǎo xù shì wèi dàn āo tū This character is actually a picture of the first flower of the day. [6] As a primitive element.

When the Japanese borrowed the Chinese characters. This stems from the fact that it appears at the top of the character for bird. which we shall get to later (FRAME 1438). both for pigments and for light. [5] As a primitive. a single drop of sun spells white. That’s a bit too abstract and reasonable. that little drop that Mother Nature set between your eyes. The Chinese often refer to themselves by pointing a finger at their nose-giving us an easy way to remember the character for oneself.” and the walking stick should take care of itself. both because it accords with the story above and because it is the first part of the character for nose (FRAME 617). The color white is a mixture of all the primary colors. they came to refer to a person's 99th birthday as the start of the “white year” because white is the character you are left with if you subtract one from a hundred. [7] Like many of us. Think of the phrase “the good old days. [5] [37] old . they often played with their shapes to find interesting connections. though. need a walking stick to get around. this character can either retain its meaning of white or take the more graphic meaning of a white bird or dove. too. so you may want to imagine looking at the soap under a microscope and seeing little whirling blades dicing the blotches of dirt one by one until everything turns white. they. Hence. it does the same trick of cutting the grease and grime to make things white. but you will generally find it better to give it the meaning of nose or nostrils. as we see when a prism breaks up the rays of the sun. [6] The same meaning of oneselfcan be kept when this character is used as a primitive element. For example.//Remembering Simplified Hanzi/RSH1_03 自 白 百 皂 旧 zì [33] oneself bái bǎi [34] white [35] hundred zào jiù [36] soap You can think of this character as a stylized pictograph of the nose. when days get old. [6] Whatever the color of the soap that this character refers to.

but the answer is simple: it’s a kind of sports drink for a robot. Note how the movement from top to bottom (the movement in which the characters are written) is also the order of the elements which make up our story and of the key word itself: first divining rod. Be aware. [3] The characters for mouth and thousand naturally form the idea of tongue if one thinks of a thousand mouths able to speak the same language.) [39] thousand shé [40] tongue shēng[41] liter wán [42] pill bǔ [43] divination zhān [44] tell fortunes The elements here are a walking stick and a mouth. [3] As a primitive. which is a good place to start for that character. so called because it is the time in your life when you have trouble with your expanding “middle. it should suggest images of divination or magic. assume the most common. soap might be taken as a verb. [2] When using this character as a primitive. [6] Think of a one-liter carafe (the kind you might serve drinks in) filled not with milk or wine but with a thousand sharp needles. [4] Note the indicator that the character for middle can be used as either a noun or an adjective. You may well wonder what they are doing there. for example. This is a picture of a divining rod. we will stick with the meaning of a divining rod or a magic wand.” More often than not. that even where one part of speech is indicated for a character. composed of a walking stick and a drop.中 千 舌 升 丸 卜 占 zhōng qiān [38] middle (n. ready for the popping as the need arises. Now look at the character and picture it as a bottle of pills hanging on the thigh of a baseball player like a PEZ dispenser. This will not always be possible. This character has the grotesque image of a person with a walking stick jammed into his mouth. memory has almost no work at all to do. but where it is. but easy enough to remember as a pictograph. Where no part of speech is indicated for a key word. you can think of it as a magic wand. but one’s first thought goes to the noun. / adj. other possibilities may exist. those tiny little pills that have helped turn honest competition into cut-throat business. In either case. “sharing a common tongue. In the case of the former frame. this element takes the meaning of a bottle of pills. but for the sake of practice. [4] One of the scourges of sports like modern baseball has been the use of performance-enhancing drugs. or as we say. Now put the elements together by thinking of squeezing two more zeros out of an eyedropper alongside the number ten to make it a thousand. This character is almost too simple to pull apart. Alternately. the more easily to shovel food in without the interference of the tedious exercise of opening and closing it. have a look at the eyedropper above and the ten below. though. [5] . the expansion has to do with eating more and moving around less. The particular connotation we will associate with the key word middle is that period of life known as middle age. This is one of those characters that is a real joy of simplicity: a divining rod with a mouth--which are the two ingredients needed to tell fortunes. then mouth.” It is easy to see the connection between the idiom and the character if you take its image literally: a single tongue being passed around from mouth to mouth.

The primitives show a magic wand standing above a floor--“magically. you have something like “mouthing off at the dynasty.” you might say. go right on to the next frame. just as the words above and below suggest each other. But the characters do not follow that custom. Now imagine her doing it fast and furiously. above and below. easily remembered. Now all we have to figure out is what the elements moon and mist have to do with it. Anyway. again and again.” When we think of what we commonly ridicule in civilized society. So all you need to do--given the primitives of a magic wand and a sunflower--is to think of the world’s most eminent magician as one who uses a sunflower for a magic wand (like a flower-child who goes around turning the world into peace and love). [3] The key word card can stand for all sorts of things. On the other. [15] .) The two directions. the explanation is too rational. are usually pointed at with the finger. all on its own. [12] If you read off the elements in the character. Perhaps the first thing that comes to mind is the picture ofa shopkeeper sliding your credit card up and down (from above to below and back again) in the reading machine to record your transaction. but let’s settle on a credit card for our image. as you probably already guessed would happen. [5] The word eminent suggests a famous or well-known person. one of the oldest and most universal targets is the ruling elite. a servant with a long cord hooked on a corner of the quarter moon. so turn it into a story that has you ridiculing a particular dynasty's court with particular bulfoonery.上 下 卡 卓 朝 嘲 shàngabove [45] xìa [46] below kǎ zhuó [47] card [48] eminent cháo [49] dynasty cháo [50] ridicule (v. the moon tilts over and spills out a month’s supply of mist that keeps the myth of the dynasty alive. [8] It is easy to imagine one of the great dynasties of China in all its glory. To keep the Wizard-of-Oz illusion that this power is beyond question and beyond the understanding of the masses. below the ceiling. so we have to choose something else. How do they do it. with increasing impatience until your poor card is whittled away to a small strip of plastic. Who better to deride than one's leaders? Again. In addition to giving us two new characters. On one side of the throne is a servant pulling on a cord to wave a gigantic fan back and forth. [3] Here we see our famous magic wand hanging. the two shapes in this and the preceding frame also serve to illustrate the difference between the primitive meanings for ceiling and floor: it all depends on whether the single horizontal line stands above or below the primitive element to which it is related. Picture a great palace with a powerful emperor seated on a throne in its innermost court. the whole complex is kept permanently shrouded in mist. since the two belong together and are best remembered as a unit. When he pulls on it. you ask.

[7] . in addition to shellfish. there are only two cases where this is going to happen. [5] When we learned the character (and primitive element) for eye back in FRAME 15. we suggested arching the two middle strokes to get the image of an iris. Oysterogenes. imagine a freakish shellfish with a single. the best l way to get an image is to recall some common but suggestive phrase in which the word appears.) tiē zhēn [53] paste [54] chaste yuán [55] employee When we run across abstract key words like this one. gigantic eye roaming the beaches on its slender little legs. “Fortunes to tell! Fortunes to tell!” [9] You have heard of Diogenes running around with his lamp looking for an honest man. The simplified primitive element for eye does the same thing. just with a more contemporary touch: the three horizontal strokes are replaced with a single vertical stroke running through the eye. [6] How do we get a mouth over a shellfish to mean an employee? Simple.” Then we imagine a barker at a side-show advertising some strange pac-man like creature he has inside his tent. We leave it to you to decide which one has the better luck in his quest. To put this all together. Think here of brushing on an adhesive. Here we have an image of the famous shellfish. In fact. and clams will often come in handy.//Remembering Simplified Hanzi/RSH1_04 只 zhǐ [51] only 贝 贴 贞 员 bèi [52] shellfish (v. the second of the two elements that make up this character. running around with his divining rod looking for a chaste man. scaring the wits out of the sunbathers. Just remember the advice new employees get about keeping their mouths shut and doing their jobs. oysters. the meanings shells. with only a gigantic mouth and two wee animal legs. [4] When this character is used as a primitive. and then make that more graphic by picturing an oflice building full of white-collar workers scurrying around with clams pinched to their mouths. For instance. Note how this line“doubles up” with the first stroke of the element for animal legs. here and in FRAME 58. Try to imagine the problem he would have reaching his back with the brush to paste. Here we have an oyster pasting a poster on his back to advertise his services in the dubious occupation of one who tells fortunes. we can think of the expression “it’s the only one ofits kind. and then see him strutting around and calling out. as when you paste something on a billboard.

the iris of the eye is drawn with a single vertical stroke. To associate the character with the primary meaning. Hence we need only two [59] beginning and a pair of human legs to come to the character that means beginning. [6] As a primitive. Imagine a title printed on the shell of an oyster. think of the verses to “Blowin’ in the Wind. at least [57] how once. he is literally “all legs. “It’s just a drop in the wind”-and imagine what that might actually [62] ordinary look like. one of the masterpiece poems of nature. no matter what comes up along the way. with two brothers each defending his own way of life and asking their God to bless it favorably. In the case of this character. it can also mean wind. we are not told as much. Back up to the image we used two frames ago-Adam and Eve in their Eden-and try again: The root of all this goes back to the beginning. Picture these two seeking the favors of heaven. man and woman. [4] “In the beginning.” the character for ordinary shows us a “drop in the wind. In addition to the primary meaning of how many.” To make the image stick as clearly as water dropping into a bucket. somewhere in your experience. Cain to animal-raising.” but is hard to remember because the word “beginning” is too abstract.. this character can take the secondary meaning of a “small table. many? The elements that compose the character for see are the eye firmly fixed to a pair of human legs. a persistently stubborn person who sticks to an idea or a plan just the way it was at the beginning..” For etymological reasons too involved to go into here. This character refers to a blockhead.. this character will often [60] page take the unrelated meaning of a head (preferably one detached from its body). whether in the same shape as above or with the final stroke more shortly “hooked” (Fl).? How many times must the cannonballs fly.” starts that marvelous shelf of books we call the Bible. in fact a book of only one page. While we presume two were made of every other creature as well. stop and think of something really ordinary and then say. this form will mean human legs. The one at the top tells us that we only get a rather short book. there is a vivid [58] see image just waiting to be dragged up to help you remember this character.?" [2] As a primitive. No wonder something unfortunate happened! [10] While we refer to something insignificant as a “drop in the bucket. It talks about how all things were made. radiant drop of wisdom. We will meet the full character for wind only in FRAME 1170. .” and then open the quaint book to its one and only page. . As we saw in the element for shellfish a few frames ago. let us say “Pearl of Wisdom.. The explanation makes “sense. and tells us that when it came to humanity the Creator made two of them.” [2] As a primitive [56] youngster element. on which you find a single. one of them with an [61] stubborn unusually stubborn grimace on his face. Now surely.... Abel stuck to agriculture.

This is the image here. they can be taught to tie their shoelaces together by changing the lyrics to read “One. and below. serving a number of common grammatical functions. bind up my [66] shoes.” the solution is near at hand. unlike the West.) Given that the comma is used in larger numbers to bind up a numerical unit of four digits. two. [6] muscle Above we have the condensed form of bound up. [5] (n.) There simply is not a good phrase in English for the block of ten days which this character represents. lemonade-you use something to scoop these drops up. the familiar shellfish. it is a cluster of sentence words bound up tightly and neatly so that they will fit in your mouth. Actually. it refers to a journey of ten days taken by a band of people-that is. the shoes. The muscle is. for instance.肌 负 万 匀 句 旬 勺 的 jī fù wàn yún jù xún sháo One of the more common ways of testing the strength of one’s muscles is to lock hands with a local hulk on a small table top and arm wrestle. who lets out a little “peep” every time you hit the target.

Chinese count higher numbers in units of ten thousand.000 would be read “five ten-thousands” by a Chinese. (Thus. whose connotations the tales of Boccaccio have done much to enrich. [3] The two primitives bound up and two (clearer in the hand-drawn form) combine to give the meaning of uniform. and then recall the childhood jingle. “One. it is easy to see how this character can have the [67] meaning of a sentence. the victor [64] towering triumphantly over it. the [65] ten thousand elements for one and bound up naturally come to form ten thousand. therefore. 50. But--it ALSO means bull’s eye.” This keeps them from straying very far from the group and helps teachers provide a uniform uniform education.

So we resurrect the classical term decameron.0000. the part of the body you test by literally bringing it to the small table. The bound shellfish thus becomes the symbol for anyone or anything that has defeated been defeated. which is what we call a ladle. See the last drop left inside the ladle? [3] The elements white bird and ladle easily suggest the image of a bull’s eye if you imagine a rusty old ladle with a bull’s eye painted on it in the form ofa tiny white bird. a group of people bound [68] together for the days of the decameron. which advances according to units of one thousand.
