The Chinese Character Stable Perception Habits

Learning decomposition of the Chinese characters form the Chinese character stable perception habits and its immediate cognition in other contexts.

Moreover, the Chinese language teacher will be saved from inventing different kind of associations of the Chinese character with its meaning.

The easiest way to learn complicated Chinese characters with abstract meanings is analysis of such characters from the point of view of its decomposition – learning all components and radicals with all their readings and meanings.

The Chinese character decomposition and analysis requires knowing of radicals. The Chinese radicals are learnt at the introductory lessons once and forever. It is like the alphabet which is learnt only once.

Evaluation and recognition of the Chinese character from the point of view of its structural analysis and decomposition creates stable writing habits and immediate perception of the Chinese character in different contexts.

 The example of the Chinese character decomposition – the decomposition of the Chinese character  意  yì  “meaning”:

音  yīn sound

立  lì stand

亠  tóu lid

丶  zhǔ dot

一  yī one
