0115 - 所[소] - 바 - place, location; numerary adjunct

The Story [이야기] :

  • This is a pictophonetic character.  "Axe" 斤 suggests the meaning, while 戶[호 → 소] suggests the sound.  戶 is the picture of a very small (inconvenient) place/house.  A small house 戶 is created from chopped wood 斤.
  • 소[所] can be attached in front of a "verb character" to change it into a "noun".  A magic axe is used to chop wood.  After chopping (verb), chopped wood (noun) is produced.
