meaning: confusion, stray

紛糾 == funkyuu == (noun) complication, confusion, disorder

Left radical is 'thread' (糸). Right radical is 'divide' (分), which acts phonetically to express 'sort/arrange'. This character originally meant to sort threads; its present meanings are borrowed. Henshall suggests mnemonic: 'Divided threads go astray, causing confusion.'
