有趣的汉字 Interesting Chinese Characters

 

中国汉字发源于象形文字,
Chinese characters evolved over time from early forms of hieroglyphs.

 

而每个汉字都能依据自身结构,找到其独特的意思和起源。
and the particular origin and meanings of each individual Chinese character can be found according to its own structure.

 

例如:一个"人"是"人",另一个"人"跟在其后就是"跟从",三个"人"在一起就变成了"众人"。
e.g. one "person" is "person"; another one behind means "follow"; 3 people together means "crowd".

 

一个"木"是"树木",两个"木"在一起就是"树林",三个"木"在一起就变成了"森林"。
One "tree" is "tree"; 2 "trees" together we have " woods"; 3 "trees" together , we create "forest ".

 

一个"火"是"火",两个"火"在一起就是"炎热",三个"火"在一起就变成了"焱焰"。
One "fire" is "fire"; 2 "fires" together we get really hot; 3 "fires" together, that's a lot of flames of fire.

 

实际上,有很多汉字都是这样构成的。
Actually, a lot of Chinese characters were created in this way.
