Kanji Lesson 1

The frist piece of Kanji I have chose is:

in katakana this is read:  
チヨウ- chiyou テイ- tei チン- chin トウ- tou - chi
In hiragana it is read as:
ひのと - hinoto

it's meanings are:
street; ward; town; counter for guns, tools, leaves or cakes of something; even number; 4th calendar sign;

and here are a few examples:

[ちょう - chou](suf) leaf; block; cake.
[てい - toi] 4th in rank; fourth sign of the Chinese calendar.
[ひのと - hinoto] 4th in rank; fourth sign in the Chinese claendar
丁々 [ちょうちょう - chouchou ] clashing of swords; felling of trees; ringing of an axe
丁々 [とうとう - toutou] clashing of swords; felling of trees; ringing of an axe
丁子[ちょうじ - chouji]   clove.
