Chinlingo Chinese character: 饺

learn chinese, chinese character

"饺" (jiǎo) is the abbreviation of "饺子" (jiǎo zi), "dumpling" in English. It is the semicircular stuffed pasta. As one of the favorite foods by Chinese people, it's the must-have staple food in the Spring Festival.

"饺(jiǎo)"本义为"饺子(jiǎo zi)",是一种有馅的半圆形面食。它是中国人民最喜欢的食物之一,也是每年的春节中国人必吃的主食。

"饺" (jiǎo) is a left-right structured character. "饣" on the left is a variant of "食" (shí), which means "food". "交" on the right acts as the pictophonetic component and means "alternately". When "食" and "交" are combined together, the whole character means "food eaten at the turn of the old and new year", or "food eaten before 24:00 on the New Year's Eve".

汉字"饺(jiǎo)"为左右结构。左边为"饣",是"食(shí)"的变体,意思是可以吃的食品。右边的"交(jiāo)"为声旁,意思是"交替","食(饣,shí)"与"交(jiāo)"联合起来表示"新旧年交替时刻吃的食品",即中国历十二月三十日晚午夜12点之前的食物。

It easy to remember the character by associating its meaning with an image. First, just keep in your mind that "饺" is a left-right structured character. "饣" on the left, which is an variant of  "食", is a radical indicating the character is related to food, while "交" on the right looks likes a person sitting cross-legged. Imagine! As is shown in the picture, a person is sitting cross-legged and waiting to eat dumplings.

要记住这个汉字并不难,通过图与字义的结合能更快的记住它。你可以按照下面的提示来记忆这个汉字:首先,你要明白"饺"分为2部分,左右结构。左边的"饣"是偏旁,它是"食(shí)"的简写,它的存在是为了提示这个汉字与食物有关。右边的"交(jiāo)"形状如两腿交叉的人,意思为交叉。最后,想象一下,这个字正如一个人交叉着双腿而坐,等待着食用容器里煮好的饺子。
