Glyph originEdit

Phono-semantic compound (形聲, OC *klaːŋ): semantic (ox) + phonetic (OC *klaːŋ).

EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Sino-Tibetan *gaŋ (penis, male) (STEDT).

Schuessler, (2007) minimally reconstructs OC *kâŋ from earlier *klaŋ and proposed OC word's cognacy to Mru klaŋ, Mizo tlaŋ (male), Karbi chè lóŋ (buffalo), and Tibetan གླང (glang, ox), the latter four from Proto-Tibeto-Burman *laŋ with animal prefix *s- or *k-; if so, from Proto-Sino-Tibetan *b/m-laŋ (penis, male, husband) (STEDT).

Gong (1995) instead relates Tibetan གླང (glang, ox) to Old Chinese (OC *ljaŋʔ) "elephant".

Zev Handel also notes (OC *klaːŋ)'s parallel etymology with its homophone (OC *klaːŋ) "ridge" (Mand. gāng) in the same phonetic series.
