Top radical is 'grass'. The left/middle radical, now 'cliff', originally was a
variant of 'sickness', meaning 'incapacitated'. The right radical is 'halberd',
indicating wounding. The middle/bottom radical is 'eye/guard' (臣). This
character originally had the rather specialized meaning of 'hiding an wounded
person by concealing them in high grass.' (Was this so common an activity in
Neolithic China that it needed its own character to describe it? My god, the
whole civilization must have been like an action movie. I want an English word
that means, "Firing an AK-47 at a bunch of pursuing Taliban while leading
the beautiful blonde heiress across a rope bridge over the river of lava."
And it should be short.) Its current meaning is 'harbor/protect' in a
broader sense. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Store and guard halberds
under grassy cliff.'
