Be wise. Be brave. Be tricky.


tano(mu), tano(moshii), tayo(ru)

meaning: request, rely

信頼 == shinrai == (noun that can take する to act as a verb)  reliance, trust, confidence
依頼 == irai == (noun that can take する to act as a verb) request, commission, dispatch, dependence, trust

Left radical is 'bundle' (束). Right radical is 'head'. Complex etymology; current meanings are the result of borrowing. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Rely on head to request a bundle.'
