寸(すん)

Meaning: measurement (roughly 1 inch). Heisig calls this “glued to.”

My hack: I like to think of this as “inch.” Just think of a t-square (rotate this image in your head!), and the little dot is about an inch long.

The first 2 strokes are the hot glue gun, and the little dot is the dab of glue.
