Translingual[edit]

Etymology[edit]

吠 is from 口 and 犬 which mean mouth and dog respectively. So, the composition of these two words mean "bark".

Ancient Chinese believed that dogs will always bark while seeing something strange. Therefore, the usage of 蜀犬吠日(meaning dog barking at the sun) refers to someone who is too excited about common things.

Han character[edit]
