  • Mood:


TOU

kogo(eru)

meaning: freeze

凍え死に == kogoejini == (noun that can take する to act as a verb) trouble, difficulty, care, attention
凍傷 == shimoyake (also toushou) == (noun) frostbite, chilblains




Left radical is a radical form of 'ice'. Right radical is 'east', which here acts phonetically to express 'hard'. 'Hard ice' means 'to freeze'. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Ice freezes over east.'
