Phono-semantic compound (形聲形声, OC *hliɡ) : semantic (roof) + phonetic (OC *tjiɡs). But according to 說文 Shuowen it is a 會意 semantic assembly, as he says "至所止 arrive at a specific place". It can also be understood "a ⼧ roof over ⾄ this spot" (⾄ shows an arrow stuck into the ground).

Etymology edit

From Proto-Sino-Tibetan *k-li(s). Cognate to Tibetan གཞིས (gzhis) < གལྱི (glyi, ground, foundation, cause; residence, abode), ས་གཞི (sa gzhi, earth (opposite to sky)), གཞིས (gzhis, native place), ཡུལ་གཞིས (yul gzhis, house, estate, property), གཞིས་སྒྲིལ་བ (gzhis sgril ba, to move, to change one's abode). Also cognate to Proto-Tibeto-Burman *mliy, from which Burmese မြေ (mre, earth, soil) is derived.[1]
