Etymology 1Edit

to go, to come, to arrive

Possibly cognate to Tibetan འགྲོ་བ། ('gro ba, to go, walk, travel), འགྲོ་བ་པོ ('gro ba po, traveler), འགྲོན་པ ('gron pa, to go, travel), མགྲོན (mgron, guest), མགྲོན་ཁང (mgron khang, inn) (Geilich, 1994). If so, from Proto-Sino-Tibetan *grwat (to go through, to travel). However, STEDT does not compare this to Tibeto-Burman lexical items under *grwat.

Baxter (1992) proposes that this is related to (OC *ɡ·raːɡs, “road”). Confer (OC *kʰraːɡ, “guest, visitor”), (OC *ɡ·raʔ, “travel, lodge”), and (OC *ɡaːŋ, *ɡaːŋs, *ɡraːŋ, *ɡraːŋs, “to go”)

to obstruct, to hinder

    Etymology 2Edit

    Onomatopeic.

    PronunciationEdit

    DefinitionsEdit

    1. An onomatopoeia

    CompoundsEdit

    Etymology 3Edit

    From Proto-Sino-Tibetan *s-ka(:)k (fork, branch, crotch). Cognate with Apatani á-ha (branch), Mizo kâk (fork of a tree), Burmese အခက် (a.hkak, tree branch).

    Attested since the Northern and Southern dynasties period. According to Schuessler (2007), the word may be much older as the graph already appeared in Zhou texts and was intended to mean "branch" (with radical).
