Etymology 1[edit]

simp. and trad.
variant forms 𤣫
𠦁
𣁬

Pronunciations 1 (“dipper, ladle”) and 2 (“water ladle”) are cognate. Variant character: (dǒu, “ladle”). They probably belong to the same word family as (OC *tjos, “to pour”), as a derived noun. Within Sino-Tibetan, compare Tibetan ཆུ (chu, water), འཆུ ('chu, to scoop up, to ladle water).
