Not all words or utterances necessarily have written forms, but...

...I found a rua2 in the _Xiandai Hanyu Cidian_, U+633C, glossed as 1)
"(zhi huo bu) zhou" ((paper or cloth) wrinkle) and 2) "kuai yao po" (about
to break). It's marked "fang" (dialect). There's a pointer to the same
character, pronounced ruo2, which in turn is glossed as "roucuo" (to rub),
and marked "shu" (bookish).
