SHOU


SHIN

tsumabi(raka)

meaning: judge, investigate

審議 == shingi == (noun) deliberation
審査 ==  shinsa == (noun) judging, inspection, examination , investigation



The top radical is 'roof/building'. Bottom radical is 'number' (番), which acts phonetically to express 'know'. This character originally meant to have a thorough knowledge of a building; its meaning later became more generalized. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Investigate house numbers prior to judging.'
