meaning: notation, genealogy

年譜 == nenpu == (noun) chronological record
楽譜 == gakufu == (noun) musical score

Left radical is 'words/speak' (言). Right radical is 'widely' (普), which acts phonetically to express 'in sequence'. Thus, 'to express in sequence', as in a chronology, or a musical score. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Genealogy widely spoken of.'
