YUU

sas(u)

meaning: invite, tempt, lead

誘拐 == yuukai == (noun that can take する to act as a verb) abduction, kidnapping
勧誘 == kanyuu == (noun that can take する to act as a verb) invitation, solicitation, canvassing, inducement, persuasion, encouragement


Left radical is 'words/speak' (言). Right radial is 'excel/excellent' (秀), which here acts phonetically to express 'lead'. To 'lead with words' is to invite or tempt. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Excellent words lead to temptation.'
