Etymology 2[edit]

Kanji in this term
Grade: 5 Grade: S
Irregular

Irregular shift from iinazuke above,[2] apparently influenced by the alternative yui reading for root verb stem 言う (ii, standard reading), and possibly also influenced by 結い (yui, knot; binding together, the 連用形 (ren'yōkei, continuative or stem form) of verb 結う (yuu, to tie a knot; to bind together)).

Pronunciation[edit]

  • (Irregular reading)
Usage notes[edit]

This reading appears to be rare. The senses are all the same as for iinazuke above.
