meaning: attach

附近 == fukin == (noun) neighborhood
附録 == furoku == (noun) appendix, supplement

Left radical is 'hill'. Right radical is 'attach' (付), which here acts phonetically to express 'swelling'. This character originally referred to a 'swelling'  (or hillock) on the side of a larger hill. However, it became confused with 'attach' (付), and is now used in the same meaning. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Attached to hill.'
