Character Of The Day

Hào. This is an interesting character. It can be translated either as a noun meaning bad news or a verb meaning to consume, to cost, to waste, or to dawdle. It combines with a couple of other characters to make words. Let’s take a look at some of them

耗费 – hàofèi means to consume, to expend, or to waste
耗竭 – hàojié means to use up or to exhaust
耗子 – hàozi means rat
消耗 – xiāohào means consumption or to consume

So, there you go. That’s it for today. Remember, if you have any questions, comments, or corrections, let me know. Later.
