Glyph origin[edit]

Ideogrammic compound (會意): (gas) + 丿(one). Also a phono-semantic compound (形聲), where 丿 (piě) acts as the phonetic component. Compare (“deuterium”) and (“tritium”).

Etymology[edit]

From 丿 (piě, “left falling stroke”) from the glyph, possibly influenced by New Latin protium. In Mandarin, it is pronounced in the first tone by analogy with (dāo, “deuterium”) and (chuān, “tritium”).

Pronunciation[edit]
