Word builder 20 / 시 (示, 視)

안녕하세요! In the Word Builder lessons, we introduce letters and words that work as building blocks of the Korean vocabulary. They are not necessarily all Hanja words based on Chinese characters, but many of them are.

Word Builder lessons are designed to help you understand how to expand your vocabulary by learning/understanding some common and basic building blocks of Korean words. The words and letters introduced through Word Builder lessons are not necessarily all Chinese characters, or 한자 [han-ja], and although many of them are based on Chinese characters, the meanings can be different from modern-day Chinese. Your goal, through these lessons, is to understand how words are formed and remember the keywords in Korean to expand your Korean vocabulary from there.  You certainly don’t have to memorize the Hanja characters, but if you want to, feel free!


Today’s keyword is 시.

We are introducing two Chinese characters for this lesson: 示 and 視. The first one, 示 means to “show” and and the second one, 視 means to “see”. 


시범 = 시 (show) + 범 (good example) = 示範 = demonstration 

예시 = 예 (example) + 시 (show) = 例示 = example, illustration

과시 = 과 (boast) + 시 (show) = 誇示 = showing off


게시 = 게 (put up, post) + 시 (show) = put up/post a notice

—> 게시물 (written posts), 게시판 (bulletin board) 


표시 = 표 (outside, surface) + 시 (show) = 表示 = expressing or showing (emotions)

시력 = 시 (see) + 력 (power) = 視力 = eyesight, vision

시청 = 시 (see) + 청 (listen) = 視聽 = watching and listening


시각 = 시 (see) + 각 (realize) = 視覺 = sight, vision 

—> 시각적인 (visual), 시각 디자인 (visual design)


시야 = 시 (see) + 야 (field) = 視野 = one’s view, field of vision

시찰 = 시 (see) + 찰 (examine) = 視察 = inspection 

시선 = 시 (see) + 선 (line) = 視線 = attention, gaze
