In the late twenties or early thirties of the 20th century, it appeared as a simplification of ㄮ, writing the dot and the second stoke of the bottom part ㄛ with one stroke. ㄮ was itself derived from ㄛ in 1920, when a new allophone appeared, writing a dot to differentiate between them. The letter ㄛ is itself derived from 𠀀, inhalation, the reverse of 丂 and an ancient form of 呵 (Mandarin: hē).
