Glyph originEdit

Pictogram (象形) – a carpenter's square; the original form of (OC *kʷaʔ). Borrowed phonetically for the sense "enormous".

Etymology 1Edit

From Proto-Sino-Tibetan *wa (large, wide, distant). Insides Sinitic, (OC *gwaʔ ?) is possibly related to (OC *wa, “to enlarge, increase”) and perhaps (OC *hwaŋh, “to increase, increasingly, how much more, moreover”); outsides Sinitic, cognate with Mizo vak (with force, very hard, much, exceedingly, in large number / quantities, (open mouth) wide).
