Glyph originEdit

Phono-semantic compound (形聲, OC *ŋɡraːɡ): phonetic (OC *kʰraːɡ) + semantic (head).

EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Sino-Tibetan *s-ŋa-k (forehead; cockscomb).

This word is only attested during Han and later. Wang (1982) suggested that it is cognate with (OC *ŋraːn, “face”), whereas Schuessler (2007) considers it a semantic extension of (OC *ŋɡraːɡ, “to face”).

The relationship to Proto-Mon-Khmer *[t₁]ʔah (forehead), whence Khmer ថ្ងាស (thngaah), is unclear.

PronunciationEdit


Note: ngaak6-2 - “top part, board, amount”.
Note:
  • ngiăh>ngiĕh - “forehead”;
  • ngiăh - “top part, board, amount”.
  • Min Nan
  • Note:
    • hia̍h - vernacular (“forehead, top part, board”);
    • gia̍h - vernacular (“amount”);
    • ge̍k/gia̍k - literary.
