0897ren2 person

PINYIN[rén]

TRANSLATIONman; people; mankind; someone else

FORMATION象形,像侧面站立的人形

CoinagePictograph. A side standing figure

Motivation单人旁“亻”的位置在汉字的左侧,“亻”是由“人”字演变而来的(另外还有“人”部)。“亻”部的字很多,大多与人或人的活动有关。

Same as "人". While traditional dictionaries classify this form as a special case of the "man", modern dictionaries make it a separate component. It does not occur by itself as a character; it only occurs in combination with other components, or with sound-components, as a part of characters. Sometimes called "side-man".
