Kangxi Radical 90: 爿 qiáng “piece of wood” ☞


kangxi-radical-4-90-qiang2-piece-of-wood


Pīnyīn

爿 (丬) ~ qiáng ~ “piece of wood” radical (90)
aka: half of tree trunk, split wood, splinter, 将字旁 [將字旁] Kangxi Radical Half Tree Trunk
爿 ~ pán ~ Classifier for strips of land or bamboo, shops, factories etc. / slit bamboo or chopped wood (dialect)*
• 丬 is not an independent character
• Not to be confused with: 片

牀 ~ variant form of: 床 ~ chuáng ~ bed, couch, classifier for beds

戕 ~ qiāng [Taiwan: qiáng ] ~ to kill, to injure
· Radical: ~ halberd


* I didn’t find any information on which dialect/topolect precisely. I didn’t try all that hard though since it seems a bit specialized. I mostly mention it all because just saying “dialect” there seemed irritatingly cryptic.
Topolect (en.wikipedia)Varieties of Chinese (en.wikipedia)
