告(gào)

Origin:

甲骨文中“告”的字形是上面一个“牛”字,下面一个“口”字,合起来表示祭祀时,人们献上一头牛,并进行祷告的情景,后来,“告”的意思逐渐普通化,泛指“告诉”“表达”和“诉说”。
On ancient oracle bone inscriptions, “告” was composed of “牛” (cow) on top and “口” (mouth) on the bottom, together meaning that people sacrifice a cow and pray in a religious ceremony. Later, the meaning of “告” gradually became more general, and now refers to expressing and telling.
