瞬 - use as single character

Recommended Posts

Scoobyqueen

I have jotted down this character 瞬 in my notes as meaning wink. The www.dict.cn is not very helpful for that meaning. I guess it must occur as a single character but can anyone give an example of a common use? I have forgotten the context in which I saw it in and without a context it seems pointless having it in my flashcards (for now).

Any help would be appreciated.

It means 'to blink', which can be used in '一瞬间', that is, 'in a blink'.

Hmm... Have they taught your Sanskrit yet?

Ah... You can also say 刹那。

一瞬间=一刹那

It's a measure word for time. A "blink's amount" of time.
