With 猜, we're looking at one of those ugly sound series. 青 made a good sound component for 猜 once upon a time.Oh, I don't doubt that. That was my hunch anyway. It's just that it can really trip one up after a series of 青 请 精 静 情 to suddenly run into 猜. Although personally I don't have any trouble getting 猜 right, it's 倩 that really got me when I first came across it. Thanks for the explanation for that one, I'd always figured that in the past qian and qing had a similar pronunciation, but I learned something new today.
