Almost half of our kanji this week utilized the 言 (訁) radical. 訁 almost always appears on the left and is one of those rare radicals that is almost always connected to its meaning its kanji! Hooray! That means if you see a kanji with this easy-to-recognize radical, it probably has something to do with words or speech, but can also take on more intangible meanings like honor or visit. Check out this kanji radical guide to dig in a little deeper!
