Glyph origin[edit]

Phono-semantic compound (形聲, OC *ɡl'aːŋ): phonetic (OC *kraːŋ) + semantic (mouth) – to exaggerate, to boast. and were near-homophones in Old Chinese.

Etymology[edit]

Either related to (OC *l'aː) (Wang, 1982) or from Austroasiatic, compare Proto-Mon-Khmer *glɔɔŋ, whence Mon ဂၠံၚ်, Kensiu gəlɔŋ, Kuy khlù:aŋ (Schuessler, 2007).
