About 契 qì - From the Kangxi Zidian

 

I need to understand just the sense of what is written in the Kangxi Zidian about 契 qì.
Not the complete translation of the text below, just the general meaning.

1° part

    亲,我感觉就算是中国人也未必能全看懂,个人认为,这些解释我也要去翻阅很多古文才能彻底弄清楚,所以想知道一个词的意思,不必跑到康熙词典里去翻阅吧,会越看越晕的,当然,如果你是兴趣爱好,那我真的是无话可说了。
    另:契有很多种意思,最常用的就是:证明买卖、抵押、租赁等关系的文书,组词:契约,地契,房契。
    还有一种就是友情,契重(友情深厚)
    希望可以帮到你,My friend.

     

    In modern Chinese ,it's only usage is when it's combined with the character "约",making the term“契约”,which means “indenture”,“contract”or“lease”,it is most used in business.it may has some other meanings but they are quite archaic and most Chinese have no idea about them.Like"paliolitica","neolitica"etc in Italian,which most Italians have no idea what they are right?You can delve deeper on this character if you want to,just don't overestimate its importance.Hopefully I have offered sth useful to you.Brevamente,la parola non e usato tanto eccetto quanto vuol dire"contratto"insieme con"约"。
