|Originally a pictograph of two hands holding a pestle pounding rice, with an indication of bran being produced. This character originally meant 'rice bran'. Its current meanings are borrowings. Henshall suggests remembering the central radical as a hand holding a pestle, the upper/left radical as 'building', and as a mnemonic: 'Hand pounds healthy rice bran in building.'|
