Why can I not type Chinese words on a PDF?

「万」is the original form of「丐」, which is the original form of「匃」. The character evolution tables are shown above.「丐」is a combination of「刀」(knife) and「亡」(blade edge, original form of「芒」in the word「鋒芒」). In Old Chinese, one of the words that this character represented is reconstructed as /*m-kˤat-s/ (Baxter-Sagart), now replaced by the character「害」(the other word is「割」). 「万・丐」was very rarely used as a phonetic loan for a word /*C . ma[n]-s/ (ten thousand), which was more commonly written with the (also phonetically borrowed) glyphs「萬」(/*mə-r̥ˤa[t]-s/, scorpion, now written as「蠆」) and「邁」(/*mˤrat-s/, to stride). Please note the close relation between /n/, /t/, /r/, and /r̥/; see International Phonetic Alphabet - pulmonic consonants - Wikipedia In Simplified Chinese,「万」is used to replace「萬」everywhere, so For the word meaning ten thousand,「万」/*m-kˤat-s/ is used to represent /*C . ma[n]-s/ For the word meaning stride「邁」/*mˤrat-s/,「万」/*m-kˤat-s/ is used to represent「萬・蠆」/*mə-r̥ˤa[t]-s/ as a close match to「邁」/*mˤrat-s/. Basically, if you read「万」with the word that it originally represented (「害」, Mandarin Pinyin. hài) then all of a sudden 「迈」(mài) makes much more sense. This is unlike「遷」and「千」, which only started sounding similar relatively recently, so the recent vulgar creation「迁」was specifically chosen to replace「遷」.

Etc. There is also another possibility. The character of “一” in 「迈」(Mai) also means the same as a “yin-yang” (yin in the south and Yang in the north).
