SHOU


JOU


meaning: earth, soil

土壌 == dojou == (noun) soil
霄壌== shoujou == (noun) Heaven and Earth



Obscure etymology. Left radical is 'earth/ground/soil' (土). The right radical is a character only found in Chinese with a number of different meanings. Henshall suggests taking the right radical as six (六), a variant of 'well' (井), and clothing (衣), and as a mnemonic: 'Ground around six wells clothed in rich soil.'
