Glyph origin[edit]

Phono-semantic compound (形聲, OC *kroːŋʔ, *ɡloːŋs): semantic  (river; water) + phonetic  (OC *ɡroːŋs).

Etymology 1[edit]

Cognate with (OC *kroːŋ, “river”) (Schuessler, 2007). The southern dialectal word originally meant "small river/stream", which is still preserved in some Min languages. The irregular pronunciation in Mandarin (expected Mandarin reflex is *jiǎng) originated from southern dialects where velars have not palatalized (Schuessler, 2007).
