GI

meaning: discussion
議論 == giron == discussion
会議 == kaigi == conference


Left radical is 'words/speak' (言), right radical is 'righteousness' (義), acting phonetically to express 'mutual (exchange)', and probably the idea of 'propriety'. This character thus originally meant something like 'proper mutual exchange of words'. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Discussion involves righteous use of words.'
