运(運) yùn move, transport - Mandarin Chinese

Definition[edit | edit source]

Radical is 辶 chuò “walk” or “go.” The colloquial name for this radical is 走之 zŏu zhī “the walking 之,” because of its meaning “walk” and its resemblance to the particle 之. Phonetic of the simplified form is 云 yún “speak.” The phonetic of the traditional form is traditional 軍 jūn “army.” Distinguish simplified 运 from simplified 过 guò , simplified 边 biān, and simplified 远 yuăn.

Examples[edit | edit source]

  • 运气 (運氣) yùnqi luck [N]
  • 运动 (運動) yùndòng sport, exercise, athletics [N]
  • 运动鞋 (運動鞋) yùndòng xié athletic shoes [PH]
