A random phrase from Lun-Heng begins with 或啁之曰,
as far as I understand its parts mean:
- 或 someone
- 啁 to chirp, to twitter
- 之 objectpronoun "it,him,her" as in "I like him, I talk about it"
- 曰 to say (stands right before a verbatim quotation)**
rendered into one sentence:
someone twittered it saying: "..."
I do not understand how 啁 to twitter fits into it, because if one twitters one makes sounds of a bird and does not speak to convey a contend.
