Easy Chinese Characters – 多(duō)
Hi, everyone! Some characters are made up of two or more parts, one of which gives an associative clue to what the character means. For today’s instance, 多 (duō) means “many or much”. Too much work (多) is accumulated and it can not be finished even if you work night (夕) after night (夕). 少(shǎo) is less, so 多少 (duō shǎo) means “how many or how much”.
