Etymology[edit]

Phono-semantic compound (形聲): phonetic  + semantic 

醫 is both a phono-semantic compound character (形聲), and a compound indicative (會意). As a phono-semantic compound character (形聲), it contains two parts: (pinyin: yī) and (pinyin: yǒu). is the sound component, whereas (referring to the alcohol used during a medical procedure) helps to convey the meaning of the word. It also works as a compound indicative (會意), because literally means to groan (original meaning: the sound of being struck by an arrow)[1]. is composed of two parts: (which provides the sound) and (a weapon, the meaning component).[2] Finally, Shuowen Jiezi defines as (literally: a device for holding the arrows of bows and/or crossbows).
