みゃーくふつ・みゃーこふつ【宮古言・宮古ふつ】

 Ryukyu (Miyako)

myaakufutsu · myaakofutsu /mjaːkufutsɿ/ /mjaːkofutsɿ/

Definition

Noun

  1. Miyako language (local appellation)

Etymology

みゃく derives from the form みやこ through vowel raising (ko > ku) and gliding (miya > mya). ふつ is likely related to the standard Japanese word こと【言】, which roughly means 'word' or 'phrase' and is commonly combined with the syllable ば to form ことば【言葉・詞・辞】 to represent a part of speech, words, a dialect or even a language. If so, then ふつ would have derived by way of vowel raising (koto > kutu), and debuccalization of the phoneme /k/ (kutu > khutu > hutu).
