Glyph origin 1Edit

Phono-semantic compound (形聲): semantic (stone) + phonetic (guī).

EtymologyEdit

A orthographic borrowing from Japanese (けい)() (keiso) (Wu, 2010); pronunciation from its phonetic part (guī) (ibid.), in turn from Dutch keiaarde (silicon). The usage of () is dated in Mainland China as it is homophonous to () and (). In Taiwan, these three words are not homophonous.

1933 work 化學命名原則 says:

Silicon珪素孳演固體可取不如諧聲 [Classical Chinese, trad.]
Silicon珪素孳演固体可取不如谐声 [Classical Chinese, simp.]
From: 1933, 國立編譯館, 化學命名原則
Silicon jiù yì yī zuò guī, yī zuò xī, guī yóu rì míng guīsù zīyǎn ér chéng, yīn wéi gùtǐ, gù gǎi wáng páng wéi shí; yú yì jì wú kěqǔ, bùrú yòng xiéshēng zhī xī. [Pinyin]
