ZOKU

meaning: belong, genus

金属 == kinzoku == metal
付属 == fuzoku == attached, belonging, affiliated, annexed, associated, subordinate, incidental, dependent, auxiliary


Origin is obscure. Henshall suggests taking the top/left radical as 'buttocks', adn the bottom/right radical as 'insect' (虫) with the bottom elements a 'long legs and head', and as a mnemonic: 'Insect with buttocks, legs, and head belongs to which genus?'
