1. 查一上網頁上曾出現過的土馬ㄗㄨㄥ這個『鬃』字,有騌、騣,甚至還有棕字。
2. 從基本古籍庫找到的最早文獻是 梅彪、[唐]。石藥爾雅中提及的墻上草,一名土馬騣。這個資料庫的中文用字不可信,所以還得查查別的(教育部的辭典)。
3. 教育部異體字字典,正字為「」,「騌」則為異體。其解為:
(1) 馬冠。(2) 馬頸上的長毛。同「鬃」。



# 還要做的事:(1) 列出文獻/參考資料 (2) 查唐後是否有人考據? 或是(3) 幾本重要的本草裡所用的字?

I see the strange word"Karma", in the letter of The explanation is from the WIKIPEDIA.

Karma (Sanskrit: कर्म kárma , kárman- "act, action, performance"[1]; Pali: kamma) is the concept of "action" or "deed" in Indian religions understood as that which causes the entire cycle of cause and effect (i.e., the cycle called saṃsāra) originating in ancient India and treated in Hindu, Jain, Sikh and Buddhist philosophies.[2].
In these systems, the effects of all deeds are viewed as actively shaping past, present, and future experiences. The results or 'fruits' of actions are called karma-phala.[3]


solar and lunar eclipse:日食/月食,這裡的食字或作蝕[1]

The term is derived from the ancient Greek noun ἔκλειψις (ékleipsis), from verb ἐκλείπω (ekleípō), "to leave behind," a combination of prefix ἐκ- (ek-), from preposition ἐκ, ἐξ (ek, ex), "out," and of verb λείπω (leípō), "to leave"[2, 3].






1. 《教育部重編國語辭典修訂本》,日食、日蝕為同義詞的二個條目。

2. Henry George Liddell, Robert Scott, A Greek-English Lexicon

3. Eclipse (wikipedia-En)


From the beginning - little about this blog

i think i have to work out the words i encountered. this is the very reason i got to create this blog.
at first, i would like to do this in the google sites, but when i find my etymology site focuses on the botanical terms, then i would like to use the blog webpage function to deal with the messes.

i cannot collect words to compile a dictionary, just to collect things maybe useful for me or some others.
