Left radical is 'words/speak'. Right radical is a character found only in Chinese, originally meaning 'convey', here acting phonetically to express 'clear/clarify'. To 'clarify with words' is to instruct or correct. Henshall suggests taking the right radical as 'cut' (刀), 'meat' (肉), and a 'cover', and as a mnemonic: 'Admonish verbally and instruct to cover cut meat.'
