Could we get the ancient Chinese pronunciation of this? I'm interested. Badagnani 10:15, 24 November 2006 (UTC)
- According to Guangyun, the middle Chinese pronunciation would have been something like IPA(key): [ ǐak ]. In modern Min Nan, it is IPA(key): [ iɔk˥˥ ], which is not that far off. It would not surprise me if the Cantonese pronunciation were also somewhere in the ballpark.
