Adventures in Dog-Walking

And now, A-Pan the chimp walks five bulldogs. Sentai bulldogs.

Okay, I'm sold. 98% DNA homology plus dog-walking is good enough. Human rights for chimps. Bulldogs have to wait a while longer.


RYOU

寮生 == ryousei == (noun) boarder, boarding student
学生寮 == gakuseiryou == (noun) student accommodation




Top radical is 'building/house'. Bottom radical is a character found only in Chinese that acts phonetically to express 'window'. Originally this character meant 'building with windows'. In Japanese it has come to signify dormitories and similar buildings. Henshall suggests remembering this character as 'colleague' (僚) without 'person' (人), and as a mnemonic: 'Colleague stays in impersonal hostel building.'
