xuǎn - choose, elect

It's quite hard to think of what 汉字 to chose each day. Generally I want something I'm not familiar with, so the blog entry will help me learn it. It therefore makes sense to chose something worth learning. Occasionally I'll chose on based on something that happened that day. What with the US election dominating the news today, I thought I chose a very useful election-themed 汉字. This 汉字 also came up recently in Victoria's Japanese flash cards, where it is pronounced, pleasingly, era(bu). It is therefore a new, useful, topical 汉字 that has turned up in my life recently - making it an excellent choice.

大选 - general election
