In Chinese, you can add multiple characters together to have new meanings. I’ll show one below and come on to more later.
This is the chinese character for woman.
Now if you put two women together it means “to quarrel”
If you put three women together it means “treacherous, evil, treacherous, illicit relations.”
The character for woman is used in many characters.
This character is divided into two parts. The top part is a roof, with a chimney 宀 (which is also used in a huge number of characters). The bottom part is the woman.
It means security, 安全 Ānquán or peaceful 平安 Píng’ān.
Together these two characters means that when a woman is under the roof, or at home, then all is peaceful or secure.
This character is made of two parts. A woman, and a son or baby. It means “Good” . We could imply that the concept of a woman and baby together is a positive one.
