The Meaning of Clay

Here's another amusing Kanji meaning for a word.

Japanese: 粘土
Reading: nendo
Meaning: clay
Kanji: sticky + soil

Well, maybe amusing is not the right word.
But I'm starting to like the way Kanji can make words read small and mean big, if you know what i mean. More on that in a later post.
