经 /jīng/ means A CANON but we also find it in many useful words

___ __ _

Do you know what a canon is? 

A canon is a book or a set of books that a particular culture sees as essential.

In pre-modern old-school China when a man wanted to become a scholar and a servant of the system, he had to go through (and memorise) a fixed, codified set of books (in former days there were five books, later three other books were added). 

This codified set of books is called Confucian canon. 

Some of these books have the character 经 /jīng/ in them, like 易经 /yìjīng/ THE BOOK OF CHANGES.

Now it might be easier to understand why the word ALREADY is 已经 /yǐjīng/ – because what has happened is ALREADY mentioned in the 经 /jīng/ CANON.

What has ALREADY happened is something that we have the EXPERIENCE of, EXPERIENCE is 经验 /jīngyàn/.

___ __ _

These are just a few useful words that 经 /jīng/ is a part of.
