|Left radical is the radical form of 'dog' (犬). Right radical is was originally a character meaning 'caterpillar', acting phonetically to express 'fight'. It is now a simpler radical meaning 'insect' (虫). This character originally referred to dogs fighting. Its current use for Germany comes from its sound. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Insect-ridden German Shepherd dog is left alone.'|
