Glyph origin[edit]

Phono-semantic compound (形聲, OC *ŋrans): semantic  ‎(walk) + phonetic  ‎(OC *ŋan).

The character was originally a verb meaning “to meet”, whose modern pronunciation is yàn. It was later borrowed for the proximal demonstrative “this/here”, by a confusion in medieval handwriting with (zhē, “this”).

Etymology 1[edit]
