Components: 部件

Today's topic is 部件 which means Character components. Can you spot the similarities of the above characters?

Yes, that's correct. They are of three Character components divided by the boxes as shown. For example, the character for 'complex' in Chinese is 复.

There are many other forms of ways Chinese characters are 'exploded'. In the next future posts, we will show more examples.

Can you name other characters made up of three components stacking on top of each other like this one? Send us your attempts :)
