CHARACTER OF THE MONTH
本周汉字

CHINESE CHARACTERPinyin: Jié

Etymology: “节” (jié) is the simplified form of “節”, which is a formal-phonetic compound, a very common structure how Chinese characters are built.  The upper part, “bamboo”, serves as the formal factor, signifying that this character has something to do with bamboo. The lower part, reading “jí”, is the phonetic indicator, giving a partial idea about how it’s supposed to be pronounced. Initially the character strictly meant “notches in bamboo stalks”. A bamboo stalk is extremely smooth, making notches in it visually distinctive by comparison. Meanwhile, notches are the weakest parts in a bamboo stalk. By such reason, the meaning of this character is later expanded to cover anything that is distinctive or crucial among its peers. One of such example is “festival”, which is a distinctive thing (special day) that stands out among its otherwise uninteresting peers (non-festival “just another day” days). In Chinese, festivals are called “节日”, literally “notch days”. And celebrating a festival is called “过节” (going through a notch).

节,繁体写法为“節”,是形声字。“竹”是形旁、“即”是声旁。《说文》解:“节,竹约也”。此处“约”为缠、束缚之意,是说竹子上分节的部分隆起,就像在竹子上缠了一道。此字的本意就是竹节,后来陆续引申出节庆、节约、节骨眼等含义。


AUSPICIOUS DAYS
