Glyph origin[edit]

Originally an ideogrammic compound (會意): (rock) + (hand) — hand measuring a piece of rock. Also a phono-semantic compound (形聲), with (OC *djaɡ) as a phonetic component. is then corrupted into ⿸广廿.

Shuowen considers it to be a phono-semantic compound (形聲, OC *daːɡs, *daːɡ): phonetic (OC *hljaɡs) + semantic .

Compare (OC *hljaɡs) and (OC *ljaːɡ).

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Sino-Tibetan *m-twa(handspan). Cognate with Tibetan མཐོ(mtho, span; span of thumb and middle finger), Burmese ထွာ(htwa, to measure by a handspan; a quarter yard), အထွာ(a.htwa, handspan; quarter yard), တွက်(twak, to consider, to reckon; to calculate; to refuse to do things because others would not), အတွက်(a.twak, calculation; because of; for the sake of). It is unclear whether Proto-Mon-Khmer *cɗaʔ(span; handspan) (whence Mon (daˀ, to measure by spans of thumb and middle finger)) is related. Related to (OC *daː, “to plan; to consider; plan; map”).
