    Hello I think this symbol means special but I'm not sure anyone can tell me what is the meaning of this symbol 特?

    Yes, it does mean "special". Welcome to the forum, Mike_0!

    It does mean "special" but is like a radical or root of a word. You usually need another character ("symbol" you call it) to form a real word.

    When it is used as an adverb in from of an adjective, it usually means "very" like "特快" means very fast, or super fast. It only means "special" when used together with some characters to form phrases like "特殊"or “特别”.

    Yeah, it's "special" or "especially". :)
