Etymology 1[edit]

/tani//dani/

From Old Japanese. Shift from earlier reading tani.[1][2] This reading persists in some modern dialects.

The kanji spelling is jukujikun (熟字訓), from Chinese 壁蝨. The characters literally mean (wall) + (louse), as an indication that ticks and mites may be found on walls.

Usage notes[edit]
