Cicada translation

Post by Nikolaos »

Hello to everyone,

I need some help with the word "cicada".

I found on the internet that what I'm looking for is 蝉.
However, I need to know what the second part of the word means
and if it can still be used to signify this nice insect.

If not, what does this part mean?
The text editor won't let me mark half of the word
so please pay attention to this: I want to find out about the second bit
of the word 蝉.

Thank you very very much
in advance,
