One character can mean a great deal- most words are made up of two characters, fragments of meaning that connect with another fragment to make a fuller idea of what you really mean.

That's part of why I love Chinese. Each word seems to be an idea, sort of like the flash of meaning you have before the idea forms fully in your mind. "Bean-like thing that grows in the ground" becomes "tudou," or potato. Literally, earth/dirt/ground bean.

The character above is 'Wang.'

In connection with other words, it could mean tennis, internet, net (as for fishing), liaise, and more. Look at the character- a frame filled with ties and connections. A web.
