Today’s Classifier

Repeat after me: YAT JEK GAU 一隻狗 ONE DOG

That’s right! “Jek” (隻) is the classifier for mammals, things of which there are two (一隻眼睛)yat jek an jeng (one eye), round things, so an eye is double whammy, and of course boats.

That was today’s classifier – have a good Canto weekend!
