あかい【明い】

 Kansai (Osaka), Chugoku (Tottori)

akai

Definition

I-Adjective

  1. Bright, clear, vivid
  2. Easy to understand or interpret: clear, transparent.

Etymology

Related to the standard Japanese variant あかるい【明るい】 akarui "bright; vivid". Derived from the Heian form あかし【明し】 akashi, itself declined from the verb あかる【明る】 akaru "to become bright". Apparent to the Shikoku term あかい【明い】 akai "warm colour".

Notes

In Tottori, the term あかい【明い】 akai is not used to mean "colourful" or "vivid". Instead, the na-adjective まっか【真っ赤・真赤】 makka is used.
