How to say "thin“ in Chinese


The word 瘦(shòu) means “thin”, this is what the most of the women around are aiming at. But if you take a look at the radical of the word you will find our ancestors considered 瘦(shòu) as a sign of illness. Being skinny is being ill. So we can actually see the Chinese thinking through our characters. I hope you find it interesting. :)
