Glyph origin[edit]

In the oracle bone script, it was an ideogrammic compound (會意): 2 or 4 (“grass”) + (“sun”) + (“moon”) – the sun rising above the grass while the waning moon is still in the sky – the morning.

In the bronze script, it was a compound of 𠦝 and a pictograph of a river ( or ) – this is the original form of (OC *r'ew, “tide”). The river glyph may be a corruption of due to association with tides. Chi (2010) considers such forms to be phono-semantic (形聲), where 𠦝 is the abbreviated form of the phonetic (OC *ʔr'ew, *r'ew). In the late Western Zhou forms, 𠦝 is corrupted into .

In the stone drum inscriptions (石鼓文), is added (attached to ), and the river glyph is replaced with (OC *tjɯw), which acts as a phonetic component; the small seal script likely inherits from this form. Shuowen interprets the fused component of 𠦝 and as a semantic component (“dawn”). The component is also seen in the bamboo and wooden slips of the Warring States period.

In the clerical script, is reverted to ; it is unclear whether this is a remnant from in the oracle bone script or a corruption of (as in < 𦩎). The current form is essentially inherited from the clerical script.

Etymology[edit]

“Morning” > “perform the morning ceremony” > “to go/come to court; to have an audience”. Derivative: (OC *r'ew, “morning tide”).

Perhaps related to Thai เพรา (prao, morning) (Manomaivibool, 1975).
