Hi there ! I am Kotaro who has a Nepali husband, Araam. He learns Kanji for N5 or N4 (Japanese language level), I have been trying to find out how to memorize them easily.
I will introduce remains of the previous post.
Last time, I shared 本 and 未.This time I introduce 休 and 体.
Let's get started !
休(yasu, kyu) a rest, vacation, absence.
Katakana but narrow イ and 木 make 休.
Kanji "体" expresses that someone is taking rest learning on a tree. 人 has transformed to イ on the left.
We will see a lot of kanjis which has Katakana イ on the left such as 何 , 仕, 作 and 仏........ In this case, always イ means human beings.
- 夏休み（natsuyasumi）summer vacation
- 冬休み（fuyuyasumi）winter vacation
- 休む（yasumu）to take a rest, to take day off/leave
- 連休（renkyu）holidays in a row
連 is not N4, N5 Kanji... But we may hear, "raishu ha renkyu ga aru ne!" sometimes. It means "we will have holidays in a row next week!" since we have often three holidays in a row such as weekend and a holiday on Monday. So just remember "Renkyu" means holidays in a row.
④体（karada, tai）body, physique, substance,health
If we add one bar to 休, we can make 体. That means イ and 本 makes 体. As I introduced previously, 本 defines fundarmental.
We can remenber 体 like.... Human beings'（人->イ）Fundamental（本） is body (体）
- 体（karada）body, health
体に気をつけてください（karada ni ki wo tsukete kudasai) take care yourself(your heath)
体にいい食べ物（karada ni ii tabemono) good food for health.
- 大体（daitai） general, outline, almost
大体同じです(daitai onaji desu) almost same / mostly same.
わたしとアランの体重(taijuu)は、大体同じです・・・my weight is almost same as Araam's........
