Glyph origin[edit]

Characters in the same phonetic series () (Zhengzhang, 2003) 
Old Chinese
*tʰiːm
*l̥ʰiːmʔ, *l̥ʰiːms
*tʰiːmʔ
*l̥ʰiːmʔ
*diːm
*qʰl'iːn
*qʰl'iːn, *qʰl'ɯːn
*qʰliːn
*zluːm, *hl'iːnʔ

Phono-semantic compound (形聲, OC *l̥ʰiːmʔ): semantic  (tongue) + phonetic  (OC *l̥ʰiːmʔ, *l̥ʰiːms).

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Sino-Tibetan *s-ljam (tongue; flame). The Cantonese vernacular reading (Guangzhou lim2 or lem2; Taishan liam2) preserves the Old Chinese lateral initial *l̥-.

Pronunciation[edit]

  • tim2 - literary;
  • lim2, lem2 - vernacular.
