Phono-semantic compound (形聲, OC *leb): phonetic  (OC *hljebs) + semantic  (wood).

Etymology[edit]

and characters derived therefrom represents a phonetic series *lep with the root meaning of “flat; wide; thin”. Members from the this word family possibly include:

  • (OC *hljeb, *leb, “leaf”)
  • (OC *l̥ʰaːb, *l'eːb, “flatfish, plaice”)
  • (OC *leb) > (OC *l'eːb, “plate”)
  • (OC *l'eːb, “official document < plank”).
  • (OC *l̥ʰeːb, *l'eːb, “butterfly”) > 蝴蝶 (OC *ɡaː l'eːb)

Compare Middle Korean

  • 나븨 (nabui, butterfly, modern 나비 (nabi))
  • (nip, leaf, modern (ip))
  • 넙치 (neopchi, flatfish),

similarly derived from a similar-shaped adjective root 넙다 (nep-, to be wide, flat, modern 넓다 (neol(p)-)).

See 蝴蝶 (húdié) for more.
