KYUU


meaning: entwine, examine

紛糾 == funkyuu == (noun) complication, confusion, disorder
糾合 == kyuugou == (noun) rally, muster [this is listed as a noun, but doesn't it seem like a verb?]


Left radical is 'thread' (糸). The right radical derives from a pictograph of 'intertwined threads'. Thus, 'many intertwined threads'. The origin of this character's meaning of 'examine' is unclear. Henshall suggests taking the right radical as a 'pitchfork', and as a mnemonic: 'Examine entwined threads with pitchfork.'
