EtymologyEdit

Ideogrammic compound (會意):  (spirit (abbreviated as 田)) +  (claws, lower portion of , tiger) – a spirit/demon in shock/fear because of the claws (of a tiger).

From the Shuowen: “从甶,虎省。鬼頭而虎爪,可畏也。𤰲,古文省。” (“From 甶 and abridged [written as such in the Lesser Seal Script]. The head of a ghost encountering and frightened by the claws of a tiger. In the older script, [picture not shown, written with 甶 on top and 爪 below.]”)

has an identical pronunciation and also features 田 on the top, but isn't related accord to the Shuowen, although it's used as the fǎnqiè of 畏.
