The second character component

Just like , 丿 is also a character you will never find in texts, but serves as a character component. It even hasn't got a meaning on its own, so we can just find some arbitrary keyword to refer to it in other characters. I think it looks like a banana, and I'm pleased to introduce you to the second half of MandarinBanana.

Although this character has no meaning, you can still write it using Pinyin. It's associated Pinyin romanization is "pie3": I represent "pi" by Pocahontas, and "e" by the Erechtheion (which I find really hard to type correctly).


丿 can not be decomposed into smaller units.
