Fun with Chinese #3 众
The last of our 人 series!
We’ve seen 人 (rén) as a single person, combined two people to form 从 (cóng), so what happens when you throw one more person into the party? You get 众 (zhòng)! 众 (zhòng) means a crowd of people in Chinese. Let’s look at some word pairings!
众 = crowd, 人 = person, so 众人 = everyone.
观 (guān) = to view, 众 = crowd, so 观众 = audience.
Got it? 😊
Translation of the short poem:
When three people come together,
You have the power of a crowd behind you.
