Yep, I’m totally hanja crazy, but I must keep going. The next hanja is a hanja related to family vocabulary and as you know there is a lot of family vocabulary out there. The hanja is 弟 [제], the brother of 兄 [형]. Let’s go take a look at this family, shall we?
Hanja #38: 弟 – 아우 제
弟 [제] is another family related hanja and this hanja represents ‘younger brother’. Like its older brother 兄 [형], you will mainly use this hanja with Korean words for family members and family relation. Luckily with its older brother, we can form out first word 형제 [兄弟] which means ‘brothers’. Outside those words this little hanja has a fairly limited usage. Nonetheless it is rather essential you know family vocabulary, no?
If you happen to know any other word you think has this hanja, let us know in the comments.
