まーすん

 Ryukyu (Okinawa)

maasun [maːsuŋ̍]

Definition

Verb

  1. To die; to perish

Etymology

Seemingly apparent to the Japanese verb まいる【参る】 mairu "to be defeated; to be overcome; to die"; and the Hachijo verb まるぶ marubu "to die" (cf. Japanese まろぶぶ】 marobu "to fall over"). Possibly derived from the root ま・まつ【末】 ma- ~ matsu "end" followed by the Okinawan auxiliary verb すん sun, roughly meaning "to (do)".

意味:しぬ【死ぬ】、なくなる【亡くなる】

+ amend/report
