DOU
ugo(ku), ugo(kasu)
meaning: move
動物 == doubutsu == animal
自動車 == jidousha == vehicle


Right radical is 'strength' (力), left is 'heavy' (重), acting phonetically to express 'away'. This character originally meant, 'apply strength and cause something heavy to move away'. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic:  'Strength moves heavy object.'
