Easy Chinese Characters – 的(de)

Hi there!

The function of 的 (de) is like the sign (’). A bit of imagination is needed to remember 的 (de). The right part (白) means “white and clear” and the left part (勺) is “spoon”, so this Chinese apostrophe (’) is clearly 白 seen in a soup spoon (勺).  “我” (wǒ) is “I”, “我的” is “mine”.
