Etymology 1Edit

simp. and trad.
alternative forms 𢫏

𠖫

Traditionally related to 𠖫 (gǎn, “to cover”) (Bai, 1980; You, 1992).

Bauer (1996) considers this to be part of an area word family in Southeast Asian languages: *khVm ~ *khVp ~ *kVm ~ *kVp ~ *k(h)l/rm/p. It is probably related to (kap1, “to cover; to imprint”). Compare Min Nan (khàm, “to cover”), Burmese ခြုံ (hkrum, to cover; to wrap), Proto-Tai *hɤmᴮ (to cover (with cloth)) (whence Zhuang hoemq and Thai ห่ม (hòm)). The root is found in many Sinitic dialects including Cantonese, Hakka, Hokkien and Wenzhounese.
