HITSU, HI


meaning: flow, secrete

分泌 == bunbi == (noun) secretion
泌尿器科 == hinyoukika (noun) urology




Left radical is a radical form of 'water'. Right radical is 'necessarily' (必), which is acting phonetically to express 'unceasingly'. In Chinese this character means only 'steady flow', but in Japanese it has also come to mean 'secrete/ooze'. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Water necessarily secreted.'
