Gou vs Wang

#unihan #chinese #network #wang #gou 


I have often why no one has tried to revive the usage of GOU as a separate character?

GOU U5193 Radical 13 8 strokes is an very old word that originally might something like network framework of connected things, rafters, canals. The original sound was something like *kaung or gau? as the Cantonese is gau, SinoJapanese, Koo, and Hakka and Viet kieu.

Simpler forms win out over complexity regardless of meaning in ideogrammic scripts!
