• Bastard Son (庶子)

The “bastard son” or “son from the younger wife” is explainable as a result of the combination of the TM stems *se’uñ “relative (by marriage)” and *kuŋan “child; son”. The phrase *se’uñ kuŋan had formal signs hinting at its connection with *se’un kuŋan “Son of Heaven” and *se’un kuŋan “Lord of Heaven”.
