Glyph origin[edit]

Phono-semantic compound (形聲): semantic  + phonetic  (OC *ɡaʔ).

Etymology[edit]

From the initial *k-series of Old Chinese third-person pronouns, cognate with (OC *ɡɯ). Also compare Proto-Mon-Khmer *ge(e)ʔ, whence Khmer គេ (kee, they; he; she) (Schuessler, 2007).

In standard Cantonese, the tone has assimilated with the other personal pronouns: (ngo5), (nei5).

Pronunciation[edit]


Note: heoi5 - nonstandard, chiefly Hong Kong.
