むい【山・牟礼】

 Ryukyu (Okinawa)

mui [mui]

Definition

Noun

  1. A hill; a mountain

Etymology

Cognate to the now archaic Japanese term むれ【山・牟礼】 mure "mountain". Note: In Okinawan, *mu does not appear to reduce to *n before *r in word-initial position. Compare the relation between Okinawan むら mura and Japanese むら【村】 mura "village"; and Okinawan むり muri to Japanese むり【無理】 muri "unreasonable". Not to be confused with Okinawan むい【森】 mui "forest".

意味:やま・さん【山】
