Glyph origin[edit]

Ideogrammic compound (會意):  (threshing tools) +  (rice), chaff.

The derivative (kāng) refers to the original word.

Etymology[edit]

The sense "Kham" is a borrowing from Tibetan ཁམས (khams).

The sense "to look, to see" arose from mishearing of 好康 (hǎokāng, “rich; lucky; fortunate”) as 好看 (hǎokàn, “good-looking; worth seeing”) in a line of 如果早知道男生也會被性侵.

Pronunciation[edit]


Note:
  • khng - vernacular (incl. surname);
  • khong - literary.
