kara

meaning: T'ang China

唐詩 == toushi == (noun) poetry of the T'ang period
唐辛子 == tougarashi == (noun) red pepper, cayenne




Bottom radical is 'opening/entrance' (口). Left/outer radical is 'building'. Middle radical is 'hand holding broom/stick'. This character has been borrowed to mean the T'ang dynasty of China. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Hand holds stick at entrance to Chinese building.'
