Write 曲 (qū qǔ)(bent) in Chinese character

曲(qū、qǔ)
Origin:

甲骨文的“曲”像曲尺形,本义是“弯曲”,和“直”相对(音qū)。又有“乐曲”的意思(音qǔ)。
On ancient oracle bone inscriptions, the character “曲” resembles a curved ruler, so its original meaning was “bent,” the opposite of straight, and it was pronounced “qū.” It also has the meaning “music” and “song” when pronounced “qǔ.”

bent; twisted; song; tune; music

Words:

是非曲直(shìfēi qūzhí): right and wrong
