SEN


meaning: stopper, plug, tap

水道栓 == suidousen == (noun) hydrant, faucet, tap
脳血栓 == noukessen == (noun) cerebral thrombosis




Left radical is 'wood' (木). Right radical is 'complete' (全), which acts phonetically to express 'insert'. A piece of wood inserted (into a hole) describes a bung or tap. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Wooden stopper does job completely.'
