A word, which has a meaning on its own, is the basic unit of a statement and can be used independently and freely. A word, which evolved from yuefu and later became a melody, was also a literary form that could be sung. After the Ming and Qing dynasties, words gradually became literary forms used in popular traditional operas and novels.
By examining words, we learn how Chinese characters pair together to have different meanings. By composing poems to given tunes, we see how Chinese characters are being used and put together. The combination of words, music, and performances gives words more depth and appeal. In addition, through performances, various interesting interpretations of words are offered.
