Glyph origin[edit]

Originally written as , which is a phono-semantic compound (形聲, OC *hljaː): semantic  (shell) + phonetic  (OC *la) – to buy or sell on credit.

In the era of Middle Chinese, a vulgar form 𧶟, also a phono-semantic compound (形聲) with phonetic component (MC ɕiaX, ɕiaH) that was more similar-sounding to the character, once appeared but never became popularized.

The current form appeared as a vulgar form at the Ming-Qing transition and is a phono-semantic compound (形聲) with phonetic component that is similar-sounding to the character.

Etymology[edit]

Possibly related to Thai แลก (lɛ̂ɛk) (Schuessler, 2007).
