What is the meaning of 忚 and how is it pronounced?
I have the complete Confucius 論語 -- Is the character used in it (論語)?
(How old is this dictionary?) http://www.kangxizidian.com/kangxi/0377.gif
Also, (optionally) could you comment on if the following argument is commonly expressed by Chinese people, e.g., by teen-agers ? (It seems like something that teen-agers might say.) Thank you.
The following is a logical argument.
Chinese has had 他 (Mandarin) = [he; him; she; her] (originally gender-neutral; nowadays usually referring to males)
because (nowadays for females) 她 is used for she/her.
祂 is used for He (deity).
牠 is used for it (animal).
Now, therefore, the only (or most) logical meaning of 忚 is [he/she/it] for children and babies. Q.E.D.
