KAN
susu(meru)
meaning: encourage, advise

勧告 == kankoku == advice
勧告者 == kankokusha == advisor, counselor


Right radical is 'strength/effort' (力). Left is 'crested bird/heron', acting phonetically to express 'strong'. Thus, 'strong-strong'. The original meaning of this character was, 'to make great, determined efforts'. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Encouraged by efforts of crested bird.'
