Glyph originEdit

 +  – a pile.

Originally as , with (jīng) on top. Shuowen commented that the shape change was promoted by emperor of the short-lived Xin Dynasty, who deemed the use of three "suns" () in this character too empowering - compared to three "fields" ().

EtymologyEdit

Cognate with (“lined dress”), Tibetan ལྟབ་པ ‎(ltab pa, to fold, gather up, to lay or put together), ལྡེབ་པ ‎(ldeb pa, to bend round or back, to turn round, to double down), ལྡབ་པ ‎(ldab pa, to fold up, repeat, do again).
