simp. and trad.

Glyph origin[edit]

Ideogrammic compound (會意):  ‎(horn) +  ‎(knife) +  ‎(cow) – a knife 刀 separates a horn 角 from a cow 牛, i.e. "cut up (an ox)".

Etymology[edit]

Three pronunciations are cognate. "To loosen; to disengage" > "idle, lazy, remiss". Cognate with (*kreːs, “lazy, remiss”) and possibly 邂逅 (*ɡreːs ɡroːs, “carefree and happy”).

? Area stem: *C-re. Compare Burmese ဖြေ ‎(hpre, to untie; to answer; to ease; to absolve), အဖြေ ‎(a.hpre, answer, solution; response; explication); Khmer រាយ ‎(réay, to scatter, to be divided up, to separate), ស្រាយ ‎(sray, to untie, to undo, to explain, to solve).
