YAKU

odo(ru)

meaning: leap, dance, rush

飛躍 == hiyaku == (noun that can take する to act as a verb) leaping, activity
跳躍 == chouyaku == (noun that can take する to act as a verb) jump, leap, skip, bound




Left radical is 'leg/foot' (足). Right radical is a character found only in Chinese meaning 'bird's wings', here acting phonetically to express 'leap'. To 'leap with the legs' is to dance. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Leap with feet flying like bird's wings.'
