Question re: hanzi meaning of 生

Posted by mnixon January 26, 2008 in the Group General Discussion.

Can anyone explain to me the hanzi meaning of ? I know that it means “birth” or “to be born”…and this makes sense for ‘birthday’, 生日. But where I get confused is how this definition applies to ‘Mister’, 先生or ‘doctor’, 医生. Thanks. AY
