I know that this words means "Leader", but I need help thinking of a keyword that helps me decipher words containing the Kanji 将.
Take this word for example 未成年. To me, individually, these Kanji means, "not yet", "turn into" and "year". With these keywords, I can then pull the meaning out from this Kanji by saying something like, "Well, if the YEAR has NOT YET TURNED of you then you're probably stuck at a young age. Therefore your a MINOR".
Here's another example using the Kanji 未来. Individually, the key words are, "not yet" and "come". Again, my thinking will be along the lines of, "Hmm... if something has NOT YET COME, it will take some time to get here. Therefore, It will arrive sometime in the FUTURE".
Can you see how this makes sense? So here's where things don't make sense for me.
As far as I know (and yes I'm pretty knew to Japanese), this 将 means LEADER. But when I use that keyword to decipher this kanji 将来, it just doesn't make sense. Individually these are, "leader" and "come". So I'm thinking, "Well... it's erm... a LEADER that has to COME/arrive sometime in the FUTURE. Like a FUTURE president maybe?
Somehow this just doesn't gel for me. Need help. So what keywords should I be using for 将 that will help me decipher other words?
