說文解字 - Shuowen: 《欠部》欠 張口气悟也。象气从人上出之形。凡欠之屬皆从欠。

康熙字典文字版 【辰集下】【欠字部】 欠
〔古文〕𣣓【唐韻】【集韻】【韻會】【正韻】𠀤去劒切,謙去聲。【說文】作欠,張口气悟也。象氣从儿上出形。【徐曰】人欠去也,悟解也。氣壅滯,欠去而解也。【韓愈·讀東方朔雜事詩】噫欠爲飄風。 又欠伸,疲乏之貌。人氣乏則欠,體疲則伸。【禮·曲禮】侍坐于君子,君子欠伸,侍坐者請出。亦作欠申。【前漢·翼奉傳】體病則欠申動於貌。 又不足也。【韓愈·贈張籍詩】今者誠自幸,所懷無一欠。 又水名,在汝南。【水經注】沙水東分爲二水,一水東注,卽注水也。俗謂之欠水。欠字作彡下儿。
考證:〔【前漢·翼奉傳】體病則欠伸動於貌。〕 謹照原文伸改申。
