Sorry I'didn't see your answer in the 2 page.
Did you see that
In essence, the character ki means:
spirit, mind, soul, heart
* bent, interest
* mood, feeling
* temper, disposition, nature
* care, attention
So it also can mean kindness..
I saw the page. So... what? 気 still does NOT mean "kindness"
. Plus I'm still waiting to know your mileage to say that.
気 【き】 (n) spirit, mood, (P)
気 【げ】 (suf) (uk) seeming, giving the appearance of, giving one the feeling of.
Listen, Carina. I don't know what you (don't) know about Japanese, but a kanji represents a concept. It is an ideogram. When you put more than one kanji together you (sometimes) alter its meaning.
気 means "spirit, mind, air, steam..."
病気 means "illness, disease, sickness..."
元気 means "health(y), robust, vigor, vigour, energy, vitality, vim, stamina, spirit, courage..."
, and Motoki
, but I digress.) So according to this 気, 病気 and 元気, what's the meaning of 気? Spirit/mind or illness/disease or healthy/robust? And... how does it come to mean "kindness"
for God's sake?
Confundes la parte por el todo.
