/rimʉɡomʉ//riũɡoũ//rʲuːɡoː/

A variant shift from Middle Chinese 林檎 (MC liɪm ɡˠiɪm). The shift in reading was due to an orthographic inconsistency in spelling the nasalized mora marked as (n) in modern Japanese.[1] In ancient texts, this kana did not yet exist, and the sound was often spelled using the (mu) kana, which in certain terms shifted to, and may have been spelled as, (u).

Appears in the 和名類聚抄 (Wamyō Ruijushō) of c. 938 C.E..[1]

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): [ɾʲɨᵝːɡo̞ː]

Noun[edit]

(りゅう)(ごう) (ryūgōりうごう (riugou)?

  1. [938–???] (rare, obsolete) an apple
