The purpose of radicals in characters

Posted by mrdtait December 11, 2007 in the Group General Discussion.

I wonder if anyone has any good resources on learning about the structure of characters specifically about the purpose of radicals, what they are and what they mean. 

 I think that it is a good idea to learn about radicals early on in learning about characters because my understanding is that every character has a radical but this is where my understanding finishes. 


I would like to learn what each radical is and what it means before I continue learning new characters and when I say learn I really mean make it second nature so that I no longer need to think about it. I am not yet at this stage with numbers but I am getting there. Baby steps...
