The Chinese Radicals. 214 radicals to build most characters. Chinese is made of words, which are made of characters, themselves made of one or more radicals among 214. See the four examples of radicals below. 214 radicals to rule all characters. Knowing 214 radicals will ease your process of learning Chinese. Why?

Looking for Lorraine is phenomenal

Looking for Lorraine is phenomenal. I didn’t know how hungry I was for this intimate portrait until now. It feels as though Ms. Hansberry has walked into my living room and sat down beside me. What an honor and joy to read this. The writing is whip-smart, yet lovely and clear-eyed.

How to define a floral boy? White clean skin, big eyes, double eye lids, thin lips, white teeth, pointed nose, a little . As the Chinese saying goes, nothing can’t be impeccable if it exceeds the limit.

How to define a floral boy? White clean skin, big eyes, double eye lids, thin lips, white teeth, pointed nose, a little bit long hair(just like the Korean idol style), tall thin body figure with perfect muscles but not too much and not too strong, and a beautiful shinning smile will score high too. Do these parameters look familiar? . If you want to attract asian girls, don’t try to do plastic surgery intending to transform into a floral face, they might think you are gay or some kind of freak and feel sick about it. Trust me!

The Woman Radical: How the Chinese Language Defines Women, presents a completely new way of looking at Chinese language, culture, and history. Most of us recognize the power language has to shape our perceptions of ourselves and the rest of the universe. The core of the book; Encyclopedic Dictionary of Characters; focuses on one-hundred-forty-four words that describe or refer to women. Each of these words has the Woman Radical as the base symbol to which other symbols are added to produce different words. Huang; a renowned artist as well as a scholar; has dissected, analyzed, and explained these one-hundred-forty-four words, as well as represented them in seventy-four pages of her own interpretive calligraphy, to reveal a disturbing pernicious linguistically-based cultural denigration of women. In her re-telling the story of Early China and the evolution of the Chinese language, Huang illuminates and questions some of the most cherished beliefs of traditional Chinese culture. She reasons that when we understand the how s and why s of a culture s denigration of its women, collective and personal wounds can be identified and healed. She posits many cultures employ similar tactics to diminish and control women on every continent. The purpose of The Woman Radical is to aid in the healing of not only Chinese women, but all women.
