EtymologyEdit

Unger (1986) reconstructs Old Chinese pronunciation as *pl(j)aŋʔ and considers this item part of a word family under (OC *laŋ) and related to Thai ปลั่ง (bplàng, bright); alternatively, Schuessler (2007) reconstructs OC *br(j)aŋʔ and includes this in an Austroasiatic word family under (OC *raŋs).
