みじ【水】

 Ryukyu (Okinoerabu, Yoron, Okinawa)

miji

Definition

Noun

  1. Water; cold water; fresh water

Etymology

Derived from the historical form みづ【水】 midu, still used in standard Japanese under the spelling みず mizu, by way of shifting /u/ to /i/ after alveolar consonants. Some authors have suggested that みづ midu itself goes back to the Proto-Japanese-Ryukyuan form めづ *medu.

Attested in the Konkoukenshuu (混効験集, 1711), "Words of the Royal Palace", under the spelling みづ midu (#2 p. 18).

Notes

みじ【水】 miji typically describes a colder source or body of water, whereas (Okinawan) っゆー【湯】 qyuu describes hot water.
