What does it mean?[edit]

What does this mean:

丿 (a basic stroke of Chinese characters, called (piě, "to discard"))

Can this be clarified at the 丿 entry? 04:51, 23 October 2011 (UTC)

Already clarified there, I think. Hbrug 05:23, 23 October 2011 (UTC)

It doesn't make sense, though. Was 丿, in ancient times, a kind of simplification of 撇? So it is an example of a "simplified" character, before the 20th century official simplification of Chinese characters? 07:18, 23 October 2011 (UTC)

丿 is a symbol called 撇, like & is called ampersand. —suzukaze (tc) 01:58, 4 September 2015 (UTC)
