Etymology[edit]

Historical forms of the character
Oracle bone script Bronze inscriptions Large seal script Small seal script
隹-oracle.svg 隹-bronze.svg 隹-bigseal.svg 隹-seal.svg
Short tailed bird

Pictogram (象形): a short-tailed bird (e.g. a sparrow). Compare .

Not to be confused with or

The right component should not be confused with 圭, which is 土土 (stacked) – rather, 隹 is shaped like , with an extra 一 stroke. Also, the left component resembles , but this is due to simplification, and is not the etymology.

  1. (obsolete) short-tailed bird, dove
