Chinese Symbol

What you see below, and can magnify, is the Chinese character for: used after an attributive adjunct, i.e. an adjective, or a word, phrase, or clause, performing the function of an adjective:
1. when the attributive adjunct is used to qualify or modify the headword;
2. when between the attributive adjunct and the headword there is a relationship of belonging;
3. when the attributive adjunct is a person and the headword is a noun for a job or a function, to indicate that the person holds that role;
4. when the attributive adjunct is a person and the headword is preceded by a verb, to indicate that the person is the receiver of the action; used without headword:
1. takes the place of who or what has been mentioned in the preceding part of the text;
2. stands for a generic person or thing;
3. indicates a certain situation;
4. when there's a series of de5 preceded and followed each by the same verb, adjective, etc., it has the meaning of 'this and that', 'either ... and ...'; used after the verbal predicate, gives emphasis to the action's doer, place, time, etc.
ATTENTION: this construction is only used for past actions; used at the end of a statement, indicates certainty; used after two or more words of the same kind, its meaning is similar to 'so on' or 'etc.'; used between two numeral-classifier compounds, it means multiply or add; true, exact, real; target, bull's-eye. I've divided all details into 5 sections. Please note that there might be more than one symbol with these meaning.
