Make Complicated Things Simple! [Apr. 7th, 2017|07:47 am]
University of Puget Sound

There are the Chinese characters and the Chinese radicals in the Chinese language. A set of radicals form a Chinese character.

Quite often a radical itself can be a Chinese character as well.

The Chinese characters can be decomposed (or broken down, split) into radicals for the sake of making the Chinese characters learning process simple and understandable.

That is why Chinese character decomposition is a very effective tool for teaching, learning and memorizing the Chinese characters.

Please see below how Chinese character decomposition makes learning simple, indeed.

The Chinese characters 口 kǒu ‘mouth’ and 日 rì ‘sun’ both include the radical 冂 jiōng ‘down box’.

In addition, the Chinese character 口 kǒu ‘mouth’ also includes the radical 一 yī ‘one’. The Chinese character 日 rì ‘sun’ also includes the radical 二 èr ‘two’.

So, the overall decomposition of the both Chinese characters looks like following:

口 kǒu ‘mouth’
冂 jiōng ‘down box’
一 yī ‘one’

日 rì ‘sun’
冂 jiōng ‘down box’
二 èr ‘two’

Simple, isn’t it? Now we understand that any Chinese character can be decomposed into the Chinese radicals.

You can find more information about the Chinese character decomposition in all Polina Shinkina’s textbooks and in “The Chinese Character Decomposition Guidance” on http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/polina985

I have this place coming up for rent on the 16th. It's a great location, and a really cool place for the price. The Craigslist ad is here: http://seattle.craigslist.org/tac/apa/2050212807.html.

I'm having an open house style viewing on Sunday from noon to 4, so stop by if you think you might be interested. Reply to the email in the ad for directions.

TV for Sale! [Nov. 30th, 2009|04:07 pm]
University of Puget Sound

[mood |hopeful]

Hey loggers!

Back when I was a College Student, I bought this little TV. Now I've got a much bigger one, and would like to see this one go to a new home.

Here's the Craigslist ad. Take a gander!
And here is text from the ad (pictures are on the ad itself):
I have a 13" Daewoo TV for sale that is in excellent, like new condition. I bought it used (about a year old) in 2003, and it is still in perfect condition. It comes with the remote and in the original box (pictured - the black box is to hide my name, which is written on there from multiple dorm-room moves/storage). It is perfect for apartment and/or dorm living - I've used it for both types of places! Nothing has been damaged or replaced on it, and it has spent the last 2+ years in dry, clean storage, and comes from a non-smoking, no pets home.

I can meet up to deliver, or you can pick up from me. It can be easily carried by one person, and will fit into any sized vehicle.

Free Futon Frame [Nov. 25th, 2009|06:41 pm]
University of Puget Sound

Limited Time Only!

I'd like this out of my dining room before people come over for T-day tomorrow.

This is a nice medium-tone wood futon frame that fits a standard queen size futon. It's in great shape, we just don't have room for it.

Any Loggers who can come and get it before midnight tonight are welcome to it - email bertaberta@gmail.com with a contact number and I'll call you back to arrange pickup.
