comment Meaning of 員 - Heisig vs world
I think that "purport" is the key. Reading the introduction I had the impression that the keyword has to be closely related to at least one (of the base) meaning of the kanji. But it turned out it isn't like this always. I didn't like much your compound example tho because in the introduction he clearly states that compounds are out of the scope of the book. Thank you.

Thanks for your assumptions. While I was fully aware of the introduction, which I read 2 times before starting studying, it's still quite hard for a newbie to figure out why a specific keyword was picked and how the meanings in compounds are weighted in the process, especially when a much general term (like member) is available that would even help in the future in making all those more complex compounds.
