SEN


meaning: shift, move, change

変遷 == hensen == (noun that take する to act as a verb) change, transition, vicissitudes
左遷 == sasen == (noun that take する to act as a verb) demotion, degradation




Left/lower radical is 'movement'. Henshall suggests taking the right radical (a character only found in Chinese) as 'west' (西), a variant of 'big' (大), and 'self' (己),and as a mnemonic: 'Move oneself in big shift to west.'
