あかい【明い】

 Shikoku (Tokushima, Kagawa, Sanuki, Awa)

akai

Definition

I-Adjective

  1. Bright, clear, vivid
  2. Warm colour; warm color

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 Western Honshu term あかい【明い】 akai "bright; clear". The meaning "warm colour" likely stems from conflation with the homophonous adjective あかい【赤い】 akai "red".

意味:あかるい【明るい】、だんしょく【暖色】
