Glyph originEdit

Characters in the same phonetic series () (Zhengzhang, 2003) 
Old Chinese
*med
*med
*hmed
*smid
*smid
*smid

Phono-semantic compound (形聲, OC *hmed): phonetic  (OC *smid) + semantic  (fire).

Shuowen considers this to be an ideogrammic compound (會意):  (ninth month) +  (fire), probably alluding to a passage in Huainanzi:

[Classical Chinese, trad.]
[Classical Chinese, simp.]
Huǒ shēng yú yín, zhuàng yú wǔ, sǐ yú xū [Pinyin]
[The element] fire is born in the first month, is strong in the fifth month, and dies in the ninth month.

EtymologyEdit

Cognate with (OC *med); see there for more.
