はよ【早よ・早】

 Kyushu (Kagoshima)

hayo [hajo]

Definition

Adverb

  1. Quickly, hurriedly, rapidly, expressly

Etymology

Derived from the historical form はやく【早く】 hayaku, still used in modern standard Japanese. The adverbial ending く -ku later reduced to う -u in Western Japan, where the form became はやう hayau and later coalesced to はよう hayou. In Kagoshima exceptionally, all long vowels reduced to short ones, giving the modern form はよ hayo.

意味:はやく【早く】
