EtymologyEdit

Phono-semantic compound (形聲): semantic  (mouth) + phonetic  – to exhale, call, or shout from the mouth 口. Note that 乎 is used as an exclamation particle, hence connotations of “an exclamation from the mouth, a shout”.

Note that the right side is 乎, not – these differ in that 乎 has a slanted top and a hook at the bottom.
