What are the radicals that make up the character "地"?
Just from looking at it, it looks like "土" and "也" but "也" is a word not a radical.
MDBG also has this break down, and in turn breaks "也" down to the "line" radical ("丨") and "乜" but as far as I can tell and also according to MDBG, "乜" isn't a radical or made up of radicals.
To return to my question: What are the radicals that make up the character "地"?
The context to this is that I have just started using mnemonic stories to help me learn new words and their characters. This question has come up with 地球, which means "Earth".
My current mnenomic story uses:
- 地: soil, "also"
- 球: king, demand
And so I have, "the soil was also the king's demand". But I'd rather use the canonical radicals and learn things properly!
