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

生 shēng  
Explnantion: grow
Phrases: 生活(shēnɡ huó) life ; 生产(shēnɡ chǎn) produce
“生”字最底下的一划代表地面,地面上长出了幼苗( )。后来字形变了,才变成了如今的“生”字。这个字本来指草和树木的生长,后来又有“生存”和“活”的意思;还可以用来指未煮过的食物。
The original character 生 was a very vivid pictographic representation of a growing seedling ( ): the horizontal stroke at the bottom of the character indicates the land; on the land a small seedling appears to have just broken through the soil, growing with vitality. Later the horizontal stroke turned into  “soil” ( ), and the seedling became like the shoot of a tree; finally the “tree” lost its shape and the character has become like the one we see today. The original meaning of was precisely the growth of grass or a tree; later it was extended to mean “alive” or “living”; it was also borrowed to mean “raw”.
