This is the English Wiktionary, which we are writing for English speaking readers. The equivalent entry on zh: will be for Chinese speakers. --Connel MacKenzie 18:55, 1 December 2006 (UTC)

I see the etymology you provided has been removed... I guess the reason is that it's unnecessary because people can click on the component characters in the box on the right if they want to know what they mean - also these characters are just being used for the sound, not the meaning.
