SAN

meaning: praise

賛辞 == sanji == eulogy, compliment
賛同 == sandou == approval, endorsement


The bottom radical is 'shell/money' (貝). Top radical is derived from 'precede/advance' (先), doubled, acting phonetically to express 'offer'. This character originally meant, 'offer someone a valuable object', leading to 'praise' as a metaphorical meaning. Henshall suggests taking the top radical as two 'males' (夫), and as a mnemonic: 'Two males praised and given money.'
