Fun with Chinese #2 从
Fun with Chinese! – 从 (cóng)
从 looks like two 人(rén)s put side by side. So it symbolises two people standing beside each other.
从 is an interesting word that has a different meaning depending on what it is paired with.
In this little poem 从 as in 追从 means to follow. 追 (zhuī) means to go after. So 追从 is to pursue.
Translation of the poem:
Two people, shoulder to shoulder.
Pursuing their dreams together.
> What happens if we make it 3 人(rén)s?
[…] > What if I add another 人? […]
Then it becomes 众 (zhòng)! Here’s the post on this: https://hua.com.sg/fun-with-chinese-3/
