Left radical is 'words/say' (言). Right radical is 'exact' (丁), which here is used phonetically to express 'fair/just'. The original meaning of this character was 'to make a fair statement'. In Japanese it has acquired meanings relating to revising and correcting. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Use exact words in correction.'
