In Chinese, you often encounter single characters that have multiple related meanings. This has the potential to confuse learners because sometimes it is hard to make connections between component characters and their meanings within multiple-character words. That’s why we created this Character Mind Map series, where we focus on characters and the words they make up.
Today, we’re talking about 口 and all the interesting words using this character. Let’s check them out!
口味 – kǒuwèi – a person’s preferences; tastes (in food); flavor
冰淇淋 – bīngqílín – ice cream
