The well-known radicals “氵” (three points of water) and “冫” (two points of water) are not only similar in name, but also only a difference in appearance, so what is the difference between them? Please follow in the footsteps of the editor to get to know them.
“氵点水” is the same as “shui”, often used as a radical, commonly known as “three points of water”. “Water” is a pictographic character, oracle-bone inscriptions are like water-manifolds, and the inscriptions are Datong, and the seal script is neat. After the official change, the regular script is written as “water”. It is interpreted in “Shuowen Jiezi” as: “Water, quasi-ye. Travel to the north. Like many waters flowing concurrently.” The original meaning is river. When writing the left side, it is written as “氵”, and all the words that take the meaning of water are related to the meaning of river. The characters that use water as the symbol are: Han, Sha, Jiang, Ditch, Wa, Jian, Pai, etc.
“Han”, phonetic sound. From the water is difficult (omit the falcon) sound. Sound seal. Original meaning: water name. Namely Hanshui. “Sand”, knowingly.

“冫” point of water is the same as “ice”, used as a radical, commonly known as “two points of water”. “Bing” is a pictograph, and the oracle bone inscriptions and the bronze inscriptions all resemble the initial frozen ice flower shape, and the seal script is neat. After the Libian, the regular script was written as “Bing” and the radical was written as “冫”. It is explained in “Shuowen Jiezi” as: “Frozen. It is like water condensed.” The original meaning is ice condensed by water. All the words taken from “冫” are related to cold and other meanings. The characters with “冫” as meaning symbols are: frozen, cold, smelt, ling, withered, ling, and so on.
“Frozen”, the phonetic sound. From 仌 (bīng), Dongsheng. Original meaning: icing. “Cold”, phonetic. Cong 仌 (bīng), Bing, Ling Sheng. The original meaning: cool. “Ye”, the phonetic sound. Congxian (ancient “ice” character), Taiwan (yí) sound. Explain the melting of metal pins by melting ice.
