One character a day, easy to master Chinese characters. Let's take a look at the basic knowledge of "丝".


丝 sī
Explnantion: silk
Phrases: 丝绸(sī chóu)silk cloth  ;丝毫(sī háo) the slightest amount or degree
丝( )像两卷捆在一起的丝线,指的当然是蚕丝。因为丝线很细,所以人们会用“丝”来形容精致的东西,古代有些乐器也是用丝线制造的。
This was a pictogram of two reels of silk threads tied together ( ), meaning cocoon silk. Because silk thread is very fine and thin , 丝was later used to describe things that were very delicate. Moreover, 丝also meant string instruments in ancient China, and竹 (zhú: bamboo) meant woodwind instruments.
