Chinese started out as pictograms: pictures of literal objects! It’s Just pictures! These pictures however became stylized and standardized and simplified to make writing easier. The pictures and symbols of the simplest characters are then combined and recombined to form pictophonetic characters which have have sound clue and lots of symbolid meaning. It’s a great puzzle and real joy because each character has an inner logic that conveys meaning. Chinese is basically sight reading by syllables, and once you understand to start with the pictograms, that it’s all sight readings, and that the phonetic clues are syllables not letters it becomes a wonderful adventure! http://tinyurl.com/pictogrampalace http://tinyurl.com/pictogrampalacepaperbackhttp://tinyurl.com/pictogrampalaceplaylist Read more
