step

Part of 行 (multiple pronunciations: hang2, xing2, xing4, hang4, heng2). Originally symmetric, 行 has been simplified asymmetrically; the left half 彳chi4 is widely used as a radical, while the right half 亍 chu4 finds occasional use. The 行 character can be broken up as 彳 (“small step”) + 亍, though originally it was not a compound. by Abberube
