Left/outer radical is 'movement'. The inner/right radical is a character only found in Chinese, meaning 'fox cub'. The top element is one of the variants of 'hand'; the character originates from a pictograph of a hand seizing an animal by its tail. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Move in chase and seize tail by hand .'
