TAI, TEI
karada
meaning: body
風体 == fuutei == appearance
体調 == teichou == physical condition
Formerly a combination 'bone' (骨) and 'abundant' (豊), i.e, the entire body. The present character, using 'person' (人) and 'root' (本) is a modern substitute. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic:  'Root of a person is the body.'
