Chinese Symbol

What you see below, and can magnify, is the Chinese character for: two, 2; ATTENTION
Use of er4 and liang3: liang3 is generally used before measure words and before ban4. er4 is always used when counting, as decimal number, as fraction, as percentage, as ordinal number, before bai3, before shi2 or as unit. Both can be used before Chinese traditional measures of length, capacity or weight, but er4 is used more frequently. Infact, one must say er4liang3, cannot say liang2liang3. Before modern measures of length, capacity or weight as kilometer or ton, liang3 is used more frequently instead. Both can be used before qian1, wan4, and yi4. Anyway, in numbers with qian1 preceded by wan4 or yi4, before qian1 is used more frequently er4.; some, few; both sides, either side; a measure word, that is a unit of weight = 50 grams. I've divided all details into 5 sections. Please note that there might be more than one symbol with these meaning.
