    Thanks,
    Your question is not clear.
    I would not call a pictogram a 'word'. The term 'word' is used for a lexical item in an alphabetic system.
    Perhaps a Chinese member can say whether they call their pictograms the equivalent of 'words'.

    Yes, I asked if we can call a pitcogram a "word". Thank you.
