Five Second Hanja (10) Carpenter (목수)

Posted in Five Second Hanja (Theme), Korean language by 노강호 on December 2, 2010

Combining the characters for ‘wood’ (나무-목 =木) and ‘hand’ (손-수 =手) produce the word ‘carpenter’ (목수). This is a combination of two pictograms.

carpenter - 목수

Simply highlighting some of the important and simpler characters. For information on stroke order, radicals and the two elements of a character (spoken – meaning), I suggest you obtain a dictionary such as; A Guide to Korean Characters.
