Ideogrammic compound (會意会意) and phono-semantic compound (形聲形声, OC *ɢun) : semantic (rain) + phonetic (OC *ɢun, cloud). Originally written , with the radical added to to distinguish from the borrowed sense of “to speak”.

Etymology

edit

Very few outside cognates exist. Starostin compares it with Mizo vân (sky, the skies, heaven) and Karbi inghun (cloud).

Alternatively, this is a derivation from a root meaning “to revolve”. Compare (OC *ɢuns, “to move”), (OC *ɡuːl, “to whirl, to circle”) (Schuessler, 2007).
