Left/outer radical is 'movement'. Right/inner radical is a character only found in Chinese meaning, 'raise', which acts phonetically to express 'greet'. This character originally meant, 'to move out of one's house to greet someone'. Henshall suggests taking the right/inner element as 'person' (left element) and 'bending person', and as a mnemonic: 'Bending person moves to greet another.'
