CHIN


meaning: state, show, old

陳述 == chinjutsu == (noun) statement, declaration
陳腐 == chinpu == (noun, adjective that takes な) stale




Left radical is 'hill', which here means 'earthen mound'. Right radical is 'east' (東), used phonetically to express 'earthen embankment'. This character originally referred to the raised earthen path around a field, such as the raised paths that typically criss-cross rice paddies. It came to mean 'exposed'. Origin of other meanings, such as 'stale' is controversial; they may be borrowed. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Statement shows eastern hills are old.'
