Left radical is 'words/speak' (言). Right radical is a Non-General Use character which means 'investigate/inquire'. Its radicals are 'mouth/say' (口) and 'next' (次). In this character the right radical acts phonetically to express 'consult/inquire'. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'In inquiry, one mouth speaks, then the next.'
