Haven't we gotten past the word 'modern', yet? It sounds so 1920's. This is 2K+. Why don't we have publications like 'Post-Modern Bride'? I imagine the cover model would wear a black bustier, be pierced in several places, and have a tat that read 'Transgress the Gender Hegemonists', or something.
Left radical is the radical form of 'water', right is 'tongue' (舌). Henshall
suggests as a mnemonic: 'Wet tongue is sign of life.'
