明王 (myōō): Buddhist "Wisdom King"
|Kanji in this term|
Compound of 呉 (go, “the Wú region of China”) + 音 (on, “sound, pronunciation”).
呉 may be a misnomer adopted by the Heian Period kan'on supporters to suggest that goon is "dialectal" or "non-standard".
- Homophones: 語音, 五音
- The pronunciation of Chinese hanzi characters used in the Wú (Japanese 吳 (Go)) and Yuè (Japanese 越 (Etsu)) regions of China.
- goon, a Sino-Japanese kanji pronunciation layer; the first layer first brought to Japan via the Korean peninsula
- Generally regarded as the character reading brought over long ago from the lower reaches of the Yangtze River (the Wú region). Found especially in Buddhist terminology and early technical terminology.
