Character Modern Beijing
(Pinyin)
Middle Chinese Old Chinese English
wèi ‹ hjwejH › /*[ɢ]ʷ(r)a[t]-s/ to guard
shēng ‹ sraeng › /*sreŋ (MC srj- > sr-; or *s.reŋ ?)/ bear, be born; live
shēng ‹ sraeng › /*sreŋ/ fresh, raw
shēng ‹ srjaeng › /*sreŋ (or *s.reŋ ?)/ bear, be born; live

Notes for Old Chinese notations in the Baxter-Sagart system:

  • Parentheses "()" indicate uncertain presence;
  • Square brackets "[]" indicate uncertain identity, e.g. *[t] as coda may in fact be *-t or *-p;
  • Angle brackets "<>" indicate infix;
  • Hyphen "-" indicates morpheme boundary;
  • Period "." indicates syllable boundary.
