1 Word, 2 Meanings

Hey, I started learning Chinese (Mandarin) and I realized that Tree and Eye are the same (mù) but not the same Sign. I this a fault or is it right?

Dear Ivkxs,
Some words in Mandarin may, indeed, be represented by the same character.
It’s, however, not the case for eye and tree/wood, despite being both articulated as mù.
Click here for a close look at how eye is translated and written in Mandarin, and here to see the same for tree or wood.
Kind regards,
