  1. Hey Marshall,

    Just wondering if there is a mistake in the picture of development, or just the development of 週 and 周 are the same, or you saw the development of 周 + explaining you walk around 周 (adding the 辶) makes up 週? In the picture of development, the end result is 周.

      Yes, Because Kanji are from China, so I need to explain The Origin of Kanji using Chinese Kanji.
      There is no kanji 週 in Chinese, Since they are from the same origin, so I use the development of 周 to explain 週(they are similar, right?)


  2. Thank you! That makes sense. It is good that it is not a mistake.
