Kangxi Radical No.60 (Three Strokes)

彳 / chì / “step” radical (60)
aka: step with left foot, step with the left foot, left foot, 双人旁, Kangxi Radical Step
彳 / chì / step with left foot
• Compare: 行 / xíng / “walk enclosure” (144)


很 / hěn / very
德 / dé / virtue, German, abbr. for: 德国 [德國] / Déguó / Germany
徒 / tú / disciple



亍 / chù / step with the right foot
• Radical: 二 / “two” (7)
• Component: ⼅/ “hook” (6)
• Compare: 行 / xíng/ “walk enclosure” (144)


Note: It seems like the characters 彳 and 亍 were made by splitting apart the character , an odd departure from how Chinese characters usually work.

Also, I’m pretty sure you won’t find either 彳 or 亍 actually used as independent characters as part of a text.

彳亍 / chì chù / walk slowly (literary)
