Glyph origin[edit]

Phono-semantic compound (形聲, OC *ʔseʔ): semantic + phonetic (OC *ʔse, *ʔse, *ʔseʔ).

Etymology[edit]

Related to (OC *ʔse, *ʔse, *ʔseʔ, “horn-like hair on the owl-head; beak of a bird; mouth”).

Further etymology is unknown. Schuessler (2007) relates it to Tibetan མཚུལ་པ (mtshul pa, lower part of the face; muzzle; beak), which is from Proto-Sino-Tibetan *m-ts(j)ul (lip; beak) (STEDT).
