EtymologyEdit

Phono-semantic compound (形聲): semantic  (fish) + phonetic  (OC *qaːn) – a kind of fish.

Found in ancient Chinese as corruption of (changing to ) and originally meaning a kind of catfish. Later, independently coined in Edo period Japan in word 鮟鱇 (ankō, monkfish) from ateji 安康 (ankō) by adding the (fish) radical to each of the ateji characters.[1] As found in Chinese, not considered a Japanese kokuji coinage, though is kokuji, as it is not found in Chinese. Subsequently borrowed into Chinese from Japanese, both in compound 鮟鱇[2] and as isolated .[3]

Han characterEdit
