Glyph originEdit

Phono-semantic compound (形聲, OC *kaːm): semantic  (wood; tree) + phonetic  (OC *kaːm).

Etymology 1Edit

Either the same etymon as (OC *kaːm, “sweet”) (Wang, 1982), or, in light of the citrus fruit's southern origin, possibly connected with Austroasiatic; compare Proto-Mon-Khmer *lŋaam (Schuessler, 2007).
