Etymology[edit]

/isi//isɨ//isu/

Originally 倚子 (ishi), referring to seats with or without rests used by higher court officials. With the arrival of Zen Buddhism to Japan, possibly a later borrowing from Middle Chinese 椅子 (MC ʔˠiᴇX t͡sɨX) or directly from Mandarin 椅子 (yǐzi, literally "chair" + diminuative suffix), the meaning shifted to wooden seats used by priests. (Can this(+) etymology be sourced?)
