EtymologyEdit

Historical forms of the character
Oracle bone script Bronze inscriptions Large seal script Small seal script
行-oracle.svg 行-bronze.svg 行-bigseal.svg 行-seal.svg

Pictogram (象形) – a street intersection.

Originally symmetric, it has been simplified asymmetrically; the left half is widely used as a radical, while the right half finds occasional use, and the character can be broken up as ‎(small step) + , though originally it was not a compound.

Han characterEdit

(radical 144 +0, 6 strokes, cangjie input 竹人一一弓 (HOMMN), four-corner 21221, composition)

  1. to go
  2. to walk
  3. to move, to travel
  4. circulate
  5. an ancient form of narrative poem which is usually longer than the usual four or eight lines
  6. OK; all right
  7. row

Usage notesEdit

行 itself is also used as a radical (in addition to ); unusually for radicals, the phonetic is placed in the middle – with 彳 on the left and 亍 on the right – corresponding to the phonetic originally being placed at the middle of the intersection.
