雨yǔ lluvia

雨季 rainy season  雨伞 umbrella  天空洒下来的雨,就是这个样子( )的吧!甲骨文里“雨”字的那条横线代表云,下面六条较短的线是雨滴,后来在雨水上面加多一横代表天,水从云中落下就是雨了。

The original pictograph for (  ) showed rain pouring down from clouds at a high altitude. As inscribed on the oracle bones, the horizontal stroke indicates the clouds, and the six short lines hanging down indicate the raindrops. Later, another horizontal stroke was added above, most probably to indicate the “sky”.

下雨了。 带上雨衣吧!   Empezó a llover. ¡Llévate una gabardina!
