Glyph originEdit

Characters in the same phonetic series () (Zhengzhang, 2003) 
Old Chinese
*ʔsruː, *ʔsruːʔ, *ʔsruːs
*ʔsruːʔ
*ʔsruːʔ, *ʔsruːs
*ʔsruːʔ

Phono-semantic compound (形聲, OC *ʔsruːʔ): semantic  + phonetic  (OC *koːl).

Originally a variant form of . Borrowed to mean a similar action.(Can this(+) etymology be sourced?)

The popular interpretation as a hand () looking for an halberd () is a mnemonic and not the etymology of the character.

Etymology 1Edit

Both "seek" and "give change" senses are attested since Ming dynasty. The etymology is uncertain and it's unclear that two senses are from one origin. Compare (zhuǎ) and (zhuā).
