KIN

tsutsushi(mu)
meaning: circumspect

謹賀新年== kingashinnen == Happy New Year!
謹言 == kingen ==  (noun, interjection) Yours Sincerely...


Left radical is 'words'(言), right radical is an element of obscure origin, meaning 'violet/few/season', which here acts phonetically to express 'few'. 'Few words' indicates 'circumspect' behavior. Henshall suggests remembering the right radical by association with 'work' (勤), and as a mnemonic: 'Be circumspect at work, using few words.'
