  • Mood:


CHOU

ki(ku)

meaning: listen(carefully)

傍聴 == bouchou == (noun which can use する to act as a verb) hearing, listening, attendance, auditing
聴衆 == choushuu == (noun) audience, attendance, hearers




Left radical is 'ear' (耳), which here means 'listen'. Right radical is 'virtue'. To 'listen virtuously' is to listen carefully. Henshall suggests taking the right radical as 'ten' (十), 'eye' (目), and 'heart' (心), and as a mnemonic: 'Ear is worth ten eyes when listening to heart.'
