Glyph originEdit

Phono-semantic compound (形聲): semantic  ‎(grain, cereal, rice) + phonetic .

EtymologyEdit

Area word (rice culture originated in the south). Often compared with Proto-Hmong-Mien *mbləu ‎(rice plant/paddy), whence White Hmong nplej.

The relationship with similar-looking Mon-Khmer words is ambiguous; compare Vietnamese lúa ‎(paddy rice).
