Pīnyīn

月 ~ yuè ~ “moon” radical (74)
aka: Kangxi Radical Moon
月 ~ yuè ~ moon, month
• As a component indistinguishable from: 肉 (月) ròu “meat” (130)

月亮 ~ yuèliang ~ moon
月光 ~ yuèguāng ~ moonlight
~ yuè sè ~ moonlight
月 ~ shàngyuè ~ last month
月 ~ xià yuè ~ next month
有 ~ yǒu ~ to have, there exists
期 ~ qī (taiwan: qí) ~ time period
~ xīng ~ star ~ *
期 ~ xīngqī ~ week
~ xīngqī yī ~ Monday
月 ~ shíyī yuè ~ November

明 ~ míng ~ bright
• Radical: 日 ~ “sun” (72)
• Component: 月 ~ “moon” (74)

*sun or sky relates to days, moon relates to months, and star relates to weeks. that last one is a bit odd, isn’t it? or is there some kind of logic there that i just don’t get?
