Cursive Style

    Chinese calligraphy running style

    Chinese Calligraphy Cursive Script simplified Chinese:草书; traditional Chinese: 草書; pinyin: Cǎoshū (cursive or grass script) are less constrained and faster, where more movements made by the writing implement are visible. The character 書 (shū) means script in this context, and the character 草 (cǎo) means quick, rough or sloppy. Thus, the name of this script is literally "rough script" or "sloppy script". The same character 草 (cǎo) appears in this sense in the noun "rough draft" (草稿, cǎogǎo), and the verb "to draft [a document or plan]" (草擬, cǎonǐ). The other, indirectly related, meaning of the character 草 (cǎo) is grass, which has led to the mistranslation "grass script".These styles' stroke orders vary more, sometimes creating radically different forms. It is descended from Clerical script, in the same time as Regular script (Han Dynasty), but Xíngshū and Cǎoshū were use for personal notes only, and were never used as standard.
