What are people’s favourite Chinese characters?
I’m busy writing a lot right now, so I got to thinking about this, then I wandered past a red poster with
that crazy made-up character on it.
The one that is a combination of [i]jin /i and bao (treasure)
and has a few other wealth-related characters thrown in for good measure.
Seems to be quintessentially Taiwanese.
But I guess what peoples’ favourites are would depend a lot on what stage they are at.
Like if you’re just beginning you might like one that’s easy to remember,
or you might like one that has got a story to go with it,
like xiu (rest) - which Chinese say is “a man leaning against a tree”.
