Question by Arthur: How do I stroke the Chinese character 率?
I think I get the basic rules of stroking but what is bothering me is the stroke (strokes?) in the middle. I can’t figure out how to stroke that particular area. I know that you have to stroke horizontals first and go from left to right, top to bottom, but what about that symbol in the middle? I can’t figure out how to stroke it.
Answer by H. M. C
Even in China now it is acceptable to use 1, 2, 3 and 4 to denote the tones.
率 is lv4, pronounced same as 绿, the color green.
率 pronounced shuai4, is used as in 率先 leading.
Yes, there are notations over and above the letters similar to the Latin approach, but this is simpler and easier to learn.
