SHOU

tanagokoro

meaning: control, palm (of the hand)

掌中の玉 == shouchou no tama == apple of one's eye
車掌 == shashou == (noun) train conductor

The bottom radical is 'hand' (手). Top radical is 'furthermore' (尚), which acts phonetically to express 'hold'. Literally, this character means, 'the part of the hand that holds', i.e., the palm. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Furthermore, palm of hand controls.'
