Glyph originEdit

Phono-semantic compound (形聲, OC *ŋraːns): phonetic  (OC *hŋaːnʔ, *hŋaːns) + semantic  + semantic .

EtymologyEdit

Either from with nominalizing suffix *-n; or both (OC *ŋaːl) and (OC *ŋraːns) reflect an earlier liquid final *-l or *-r (Schuessler, 2007).

From Proto-Sino-Tibetan *ŋa-n (goose), cognate with Tibetan ངང་པ (ngang pa), Burmese ငန်း (ngan:).

On resonants' correspondence among Burmese, Tibetan and Chinese, see Hill (2014).
