One character a day, easy to master Chinese characters. Let’s take a look at the basic knowledge of “小”.

小 xiăo
Explnantion: small
Phrases: 小心(xiǎo xīn) be careful;take care  ;小说(xiǎo shuō) novel;fiction
“小”由三条短直线( )组成,通常指细小的物件。中间的直线( )指形状较小的物件,而两边的( )就是把小物件分开。如果我们将物件分开,它们的体积当然会比原来的小很多!
The character小in the oracle bones was formed by three short verticals (). The vertical in the middle depicts a small object and the other two on either side are the halves of a separated 八, which means “divide” as we know. When something is divided, it naturally becomes “small”.
