The divine crowbar

Now here's another character component. I just wanted to paint a picture for when I noticed that I didn't introduce yet. This character doesn't really have a meaning on its own, but I'll use it as a component for some characters.

At the same time, there's Zeus: he represents characters starting with "ju". I also like how the pronunciation of , "jue2", starts with "j" which just looks like itself! Nice, huh?

So while does not have a meaning on it's own, giving it its own painting helps us build our web of knowledge: is pronounced "jue2", and associated with Zeus (ju-) and the entrance of the Erectheion (-e2). This connection helps us recognize Zeus and all the elements in other contexts.


can not be decomposed into smaller units.

jue2 =
ju + e2
