Random kanji

For those that actually have learned japanese pretty well, what are some kanji that you believe almost entirely stray from the meaning of its constituent radicals? this is just out of interest

All of them? :slight_smile:

Radicals unfortuantely don’t work like that. Often one radical will hint at the meaning and the rest might hint at the pronunciation if you’re lucky.


It would be easier to make a list of kanji where the constituent elements actually do relate to the meaning.
