Random Kanji Knowledge: Koibito

Random Kanji Knowledge: Kanji is a complicated means of conveying language. With literally thousands of symbols that have different readings depending on context, the layers of complexity can prove overwhelming. However, beyond the squiggly lines lies sophistication to those patient and diligent enough to learn. Kanji is really cool in this regard.

Random Kanji Knowledge time!

Today’s kanji is 恋人, which is read as koibito (ko-ee-bee-toe).

恋 is the symbol for “love/romance.”

人 means “person.”

Put two and two together, and 恋人 turns into “lover/sweetheart.” 恋人 is often used in reference to one’s boyfriend/girlfriend/significant other.

The stroke order for 恋人 is shown below.
