Etymology[edit]

云-oracle.svg 云-seal.svg
Oracle bone script Bronze inscriptions Large seal script Small seal script

Pictogram (象形), originally a stylized picture of clouds. The character was subsequently borrowed for a homophone meaning "say" and the original meaning came to be represented by through the addition of a semantic ("rain") component.

The simplified form adopted by the People's Republic of China in the 1950s eliminates this later addition and uses 云 for both "say" and "cloud".
