KEN

kata
meaning: shoulder

比肩== hiken == (noun which can take する to act as a verb) rank equal with, compare favorably with
肩書 (also may be spelled 肩書き) == katagaki ==  (noun) title, degree, address (on letter), criminal record


Bottom radical is 'flesh/of the body' (肉). Upper radical is 'door' (戸), which may be miscopying of a pictograph of a shoulder. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Use fleshy shoulder against door.'
