  • Mood:

se, une

meaning: ridge, square measure

畝間 == unema == (noun) furrow, room with ridged roof
畝織 ==  uneori == (noun) ridged fabric, corduroy

Bottom left radical is 'field' (田). Right radical is 'lasting' (久), acting phonetically to express 'ridge'. This character originally referred to ridges that divided farm fields. The square area that these ridges marked off is another meaning: in modern terms, this is an area of about 99.3 square meters. Henshall suggests taking the top element of the left radical as a 'top', and as a mnemonic: 'Measured fields topped by lasting ridges.'
