ROU


meaning: man, husband

郎党 == roudou == (noun) vassals, retainers, followers
新郎新婦 == jinroushinpu == bride and groom




Right radical is 'village'. Left radical is 'good' (良). This character was originally the name of a specific village in ancient China. Its current meanings are the result of its use as a simplification of '良人', used by women to address their husbands. From that use it has also come to mean 'man' in general. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: ''Husband is man from good village.''
