simp. and trad.
alt. forms “play”
“alley”

Glyph originEdit

Ideogrammic compound (會意):  ‎(jade) +  ‎(hands) – play with a jade artefact using one's hands.

EtymologyEdit

Compared with Khmer លួង ‎(luŏng, to console; to cheer; to coax; to flatter) < Old Khmer lvaṅ ‎(to cheer, amuse, entertain, divert) < Pre-Angkorian Khmer loṅ. The Khmer initial consonant does not agree with Old Chinese; perhaps the Khmer word is a post-Han loan (Schuessler, 2007).

The sense of “lane; alleyway” is possibly from an ancient regional variant of (OC *ɡroːŋs, “alley”).
