Hosted the Reactionary Tart Nameless Crit Group's semi-monthly session yesterday, with filomancer, klingonguy, oracne, pointoforigin, Ricardo, and Sally, with a surprise appearance by the toilet demon from Kevin Smith's Dogma. Fiction was critted, food was noshed, and a good time was had by all, except the cats, who were alarmed to find all these strange people in their house.





SOU

a(u)

meaning: encounter, meet

遭遇 == souguu == (noun that can take する to act as a verb) encounter
遭難== sounan == (noun) disaster, shipwreck, accident




Left radical is 'movement'. The right radical is 'official/companion' (曹), being used phonetically to express 'meet/encounter'. Henshall suggests taking the right radical as 'sun' (日) doubled, and 'long' version of 'grass', and as a mnemonic: 'Encounter companion moving on sunny grass.'
