EtymologyEdit

From Middle Chinese ‎(sew, xiao (Chinese flute)).

PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

‎(hiragana しょう, romaji shō, historical hiragana せう)

  1. xiao (Chinese flute)

Usage notesEdit

Synonymous with the longer phrase 簫の笛 ‎(shō no fue, literally shō flute).[1] However, given the rarity of this kanji in writing, and the large number of possible single-kanji terms pronounced as shō in Japanese, this longer term that specifies ‎(flute) is used to clarify and disambiguate.
