The Chinese script has evolved dramatically over the years, as indicated in the introduction, from a simple, ideo- and pictographic script to a highly stylized script that eventually underwent a change from the perhaps overly complex – albeit very artistic – to the highly simplified before making the shift to a Latin-based (Romanized) script that would not only facilitate the Chinese.

The characters in The Way of Chinese Characters are written in “Regular Script” (or traditional charac- ters) and simplified characters. Regular Script can be traced to the late Han Dynasty ( b.c.– Writing developed very early in Asia, too (by B.C. or earlier), where cheap, readily available writing surfaces were preferred.
