In Chinese we have a saying, crying for health. Our word of this week is 哭 – ‘cry’.
哭 is pronounced kū.
The origin of this character is different. Duan Yucai, a scholar in the Qing Dynasty, believed that “cry” originally referred to the howling of dogs, but when used for humans, it referred to the wailing of people; others believed that the ancient character of “cry” resembled the appearance of a person raising his hands and crying to heaven and earth.
