huang >This character is pronounced huang (second tone). It has 172 strokes. As shown in the picture above, this character is the character with the most strokes in the world. Because this character is relatively rare, it cannot be typed out by the computer. It is an ancient character and its interpretation is currently unknown. , But we can analyze the meaning of the word from the structure of the word. First of all, we can see that outside the word is a walking side, representing movement, lightning and thunder, wind swept, dusty, dragons and phoenix dancing, deer running on the mountain, scenes It is very confusing. It can be interpreted as a very confusing meaning in the definition of pictograms. Of course, the above explanation only represents personal opinions and cannot represent authority. If there is a better interpretation, different suggestions can also be made.

What is your source that this is an ancient character?


Janbiya

My experience is that sensationally overwrought characters such as this one or the "biang" in biang biang mian are modern innovations created for publicity and/or marketing purposes.

What? Being a native Chinese for more than 20 yrs I don't know that this is either


mengbo

don't worry, i have been using Chinese for more than 30 years, and i don't know it as well


thetjmorton

It’s a compact poem.


Jumpy-Pension-2532

being a chinese for 30years I dont know what it is too


bond_zy

I was born in China and lived here for forty years, I don't even know what this is?


Practical_Culture833

The fact that it seems most Chinese don't even know this... thing makes me really reflect how complex the mandarin language truly is


BillyBattsShinebox

That's just the traditional Chinese character for 我

Damn that is fucking beautiful and is packed with pretty deep meaning and a LOT of imagery. This character invokes the general mileu of entire poems, if not life itself. It describes a rich landscape, deep personal interactions seemily embedded under the stormy skies, in mountain valleys, toiling in the fields. It'd deep asf and is blowing my mind. Thanks for sharing this.

biang Name of a kind of noodles in Shaanxi.


Ok_Object7636

No, it’s different.


sehwyl

I’ve seen this before. I think it’s used in divination or blessings but it’s not an actually in-use character like biang


menimaailmanympari

Biang?


CockroachesRpeople

Idk but would make a good memory test game.
