寸 symbols ‘short’ or ‘small’

Popularity 1Viewed 1037 times 2019-9-18 09:45 |Personal category:education|System category:News



时 means ‘time’. Its 日 is ‘the Sun’ but here that shouldd represent ‘one day’. 寸 shows ‘one short period' of the 24 hours per day.
Another example is 辱(To say bad things about someone.). Its top is 辰 that was a giant dinosaur in the primary stage of the Earth.   寸 is so tiny that looks like ‘a worm’.  How can you devalue a powerful animal as a weak worm?Obviously you are calling someone names!
