Learn Chinese Word Formation-毛

毛(máo) :(hair,feather,wool,a family name)

“毛” is a pictographic character. In bronze script, it looks like curved hair. The shape basically stays unchanged in small seal script. The character “毛” we are looking at is evolved from the shape in small seal script. The character “毛” originally means human hair and eyebrow, and later on it generally refers to all kinds of hair. “毛” is also a radical. Most characters with the radical are associated with hair, such as “毡”(zhan, felt) and “毯” (tan, blanket). In addition, “毛” is a family name.

Because hairy things all have a rough surface, the character “毛” carries the meanings of “rough” and “coarse” by extension. It can also be used to describe something of no value. As a popular Chinese saying goes, “Death, can be weightier than Mountain Tai, or lighter than a feather”. If something is even lighter than a feather, then it is valueless. Therefore, the saying means death can be of great significance or of no value.(cultural-china.com)
