Left radical is the radical form of 'water'. Right radical is a character found only in Chinese, meaning, 'strike/beat'. It is composed of 'release' (放), being used in its original literal meaning of 'strike', and 'white' (白), which acts phonetically to express 'beat'. This character originally referred to water striking against an object. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Fiercely agitated water releases white spray.'
