Glyph origin[edit]

Phono-semantic compound (形聲, OC *laŋ) and ideogrammic compound (會意): semantic  (hill) + phonetic  (OC *laŋ, sunshine) – sun shining on a hill.

Etymology[edit]

Either Sino-Tibetan or a Mainland Southeast Asian (MSEA) Wanderwort; compare Burmese လင်း (lang:, bright), Lepcha [script needed] (a-lóṅ, reflective light), Thai ปลั่ง (bplàng, bright; shiny) (Schuessler, 2007).

STEDT provisionally sets up Proto-Kuki-Chin *klaaŋ-I, klaan-II (shine; light; bright) and compares it to the following:

  • (OC *laŋ, “sunshine”)
  • (OC *kraŋʔ, “bright; scenery”)
  • (OC *kraŋs, “mirror”)
  • (OC *raŋs, “bright”)
  • (OC *kjaŋ, “brilliant, splendid; rule; emblem; display (v.)”)

Pronunciation[edit]


Note:
  • iûⁿ/iôⁿ - vernacular;
  • iông/iâng - literary.

  • iên5 - Chaozhou (in placenames);
  • ion5 - Shantou (in placenames).
