KAN, TAN

ta(eru)
meaning: endure, withstand

持堪える == mochikotaeru == (verb) to hold out
堪え忍ぶ == taeshinobu == (verb) to bear patiently, to put up with, to endure


Left radical is 'earth' (土). Left radical is 'great/exceedingly' (甚), acting phonetically to express 'thrust (up)'. This character originally referred to 'raised ground'; its present meanings are due to a confusion with 'endure' (勘). Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Exceedingly large earthen mound will endure.'
