Need help with this character

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am very new to learning Chinese and I do not know the meaning or pronunciation or this character. If someone could help me by giving me the pinyin and the English translation for this character I would be very grateful.

Thank you.

I suggest Pleco as a phone dictionary app.

If you're familiar with stroke order, you can bring up the character on Pleco by writing it out on your phone's screen.

Pleco doesn't insist on stroke order, or at least I just tried it with a couple of variants and still found the character.

 

If you can access google translate on the web, that also allows hand-written input for characters (pen icon), and you can be as random as you like with that so long as it looks like the character.

Pleco also has an OCR module, so you don't even need to write it by hand.  Just point the camera at the text.
