y012-1

 

Although y012-2 is a phonetic, it also serves to emphasize the meaning of this character for ocean : y012-3. Sheep, being inland animals, graze on land away from the ocean : so water ( y012-4) far away from the sheep ( y012-2 ) came to mean ocean : y012-3. By extension, y012-3 also means "foreign". i.e., far away beyond the ocean.
