KATSU

kuku(ru)
meaning: bind, wrap, fasten

包括的 == houkatsuteki == (adjective that takes な) comprehensive
一括 == ikkatsu == (noun that can act as a verb using する) all together, batch, one lump, one bundle, summing up


Left radical is one of the radical forms of 'hand'. Right radical was originally a different character that acted phonetically to express 'bind'; now it is 'tongue' (舌). Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Hand binds and wraps tongue.'
