Let's have fun NIHONGO.
"To divide the money."貧 means "poor".For example...貧血 (hinketsu) : anemia極貧 (gokuhin) : very poorBe careful not to be too kind!If you divide your money with your friends, you might be 貧 in the future...!!
Hi akiko!I remember that the red part of 貧 means "see", not money. Is this another meaning of this part?
Hi LittleDino,I'm not sure if you could see the small difference between these 2 kanji with such a small font though...貝 is different from 見.Yes, 見 means "to see, watch".But 貝 means "money".Actually, by itself, 貝 means shell.Long time a go, people used shell as money, so we became using 貝 for describing money in kanji. It's an interesting kanji history, isn't it!?
hi akiko,the book I'm studying from has a different Kanji character for "money"... it's the same Kanji character for "kin... gold".
My explanation was not clear.I'm sorry!Yes, 金 is kanji for "money, gold, friday".For example...大金 (taikin) : a lot of moneyお金 (okane) : money金 (kin) : goldBut 貝 is often used to describe "money" as a radical.It means that 貝 is often used to describe "money" in other kanji.
Hi akikoThank you for explaining so clear. I confusing between two words. :">
I*m pretty new in Nihongo especially in Kanji. I*m just beginner of Nihongo.I can say that I'm lazy and slow study therefore always in lost.Is there anyone there could influence me to study Nihongo? I'm bit slow learner....
