  • To me, this looks like a bridge going over a body of water, being supported by columns underneath it. Being that I live near the ocean, I see tourists and vacationers coming and going constantly on the bridge. Because the bridge is so long, it forms an arc to support the structural integrity. You can see that arc here.

  • I use The Flash for for this primitive; a superhero who is always going very fast.

  • See book. * As a primitive I will prefer to use the meaning of column whenever possible, and use the image of columns of the temples of ancient Greece (such as Corinthian columns). The primitive meaning of line is best avoided in my opinion because it is very close to FRAME 812 “file”. Going is not very graphic, but may be used when a mnemonic calls for it.

  • For those who need a mnemonic in order not to forget how to write this kanji, think of katakana イテ ite (here the イeven gets a dot): ite in Latin means go! +++ As for the primitive: Ill use i as in iTunes or itinerary.

  • I was having a hard time using columns and going for the left-side later on. What helped me was using it as crossing the line. You know, as in going too far. This might help, it did for me.

  • When I look at this kanji, I see a broken bridge - the leftmost strokes representing the part of the bridge that has actually been damaged due to an earthquake or something. Imagine going across a bridge, when suddenly an earthquake tears the bridge in two.

  • LHS is 亻, person, with an extra line to suggest motion. This means step. RHS was once the same, so this meant step, step, going. 旅行、りょこう, trip: 沖縄への旅行はどうだった, How was the trip to Okinawa? 銀行、ぎんこう, bank; 行く、いく, to go: 今度の日曜日に遊びに行くよ, Next Sunday Ill go and visit (lit. go play). 行う、おこなう, to do, perform: 医師団はもう一度手術を行うのを拒んだ, The doctors refused to perform another operation.

  • The Flash is always going the wrong way!Uh-oh, Hes going down a one way street...Stop him!!
