EtymologyEdit

Pictogram (象形) – a bush with intertwined branches in a ritual vessel; precise sense unclear.[1] Phonetic loan (假借) for abstract meanings.

Top is unrelated to and , thus in some forms (notably the form used in the Kangxi Dictionary) there is an added dot to distinguish 者 from these others, but this is not present traditionally.
