I’ve noticed this a few times now elsewhere. “Top 10 kanji with this radical” But you don’t say what the radical actually is. I thought it was “speak”, but your first example is ’speak’

Hi, Japanese Pod101. I have a question. In Kanji, 好 is pronounce as ’su’, isn’t it? But, why its meaning is ‘SUKI’ /(like) ? 私わ好きです。If that 好 means ’suki’, what is the needed to use き after that word?
