TOKU
e(ru), u(ru)
meaning: gain, potential

得点 == tokuten == marks, score, points, runs
所得 == shotoku == income, earnings


Left radical is 'go/move'. The right radical was originally 'hand' and 'shell/money' (貝). Henshall suggests remembering its current form as 'day' (日), 'one' (一), and 'measure' (寸), and as a mnemonic: 'Measure potential gains in movement over one day.'
