8 thoughts on “起”

  1. min min, please check write of the qi (in jan 22nd) is that correct, because it’s not the same with the example? thks,

    1. These 3 characters look similar but actually they are different :
      己 (jǐ), 已 (yǐ) , 巳(sì)
      The first and second are more commonly used.

      What I have learnt during my school last time for the character “起” is 走 + 己. And according to my dictionary, it should be 己.
      However, if you try this website
      It shows 巳(sì) and 己 (jǐ)as the component.

      I have contacted the support of the software that I used to generate the animated stroke order image, and asked if they have corrected this in their latest version.

      Thanks Viencit for explaining the error.

    2. I have changed the stroke order image.
      I need to set to simplified in the settings of the software, so that it will generate the correct character.
      Thanks for the prompt reply from their support team.

  2. Caesar mentioned this : 已 and 巳

    In the stroke order example it’s : 巳 and not 已
    But following my dic. both mean the same

    the radical 走 + 已 or the radical 走 + 巳
