Elephant Evolution of pictograms Chinese characters represent words of the language using several strategies. A few characters, including some of the most commonly used, were originally pictograms , which depicted the objects denoted, or ideograms , in which meaning was expressed iconically. The vast majority were written using the rebus principle , in which a character for a similarly sounding word was either simply borrowed or more commonly extended with a disambiguating semantic marker to form a phono-semantic compound character. Characters in this class derive from pictures of the objects they denote. Over time they have been standardized, simplified, and stylized to make them easier to write, and their derivation is therefore not always obvious. Rebus was pivotal in the history of writing in China insofar as it represented the stage at which logographic writing could become purely phonetic phonographic.

Reminiscent of a quaint English village, with neat gardens, surrounded by white picket fences, Clayburn was the first company town in BC. From the First Nations people who lived there, to the squatters, to the burial of a famous person's ashes on top of Siwash Rock, the tales are many and varied.
