启(qǐ)
Origin:

 

甲骨文的“启”是一只手把一扇门打开,本义是“开”,后来引申为“开始”“开导”“陈述”等意思。
As it appears on oracle bone inscriptions, “启” looks like a hand opening a door, so its original meaning was to open. Later, that definition expanded to include concepts of to start, to enlighten, and to state.

 

Meaning:
open; awaken; start

Words:

启发(qǐfā): to inspire; enlighten
开启(kāiqǐ): to open
启事(qǐshì): notice; announcement
启蒙(qǐméng): to enlighten (at the beginning)
难以启齿(nán yǐ qǐchǐ): unspeakable; difficult to speak one’s mind

Sentences:

 

1、Nǐ wèishénme bù gěi wǒ diǎnr qǐfā?
你为什么不给我点儿启发?
Why don’t you enlighten me?

 

 

2、Nǐ zěnme bù tiē ge qǐshì shénmede.
