  • Mood:


TOU

ni(geru), ni(gasu), noga(reru), noga(su)

meaning: escape, evade, miss

到逃げ出す == nigedasu == (verb) to run away, to escape from
見逃す == minogasu == (verb) to miss, to overlook, to leave at large




Left/outer radical is 'movement (along a road)'. Inner radical is 'sign/trillion' (兆), which here acts phonetically to express 'escape'. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Escape through a trillion moves.'
