Etymology[edit]

Japanese Wikipedia has an article on:
Wikipedia ja
(karei)
Kanji in this term
かれい
Hyōgaiji
kun’yomi

/kara epi1/ invalid IPA characters (1)/karepi//karefi/*/karewi/*/kareii//karei/

Likely from Old Japanese. Attested in the Honzō Wamyō. The Wamyō Ruijushō has 王餘魚, with the phonetic spellings 加良衣比 (karaepi1) and variant 加禮比 (karepi1).

Originally a compound of  (から) (Kara, Korea, euphemism) +  (エイ) (ei, a kind of ray). It is said that the flounder was imported from Korea to Japan in the Samhan period, and was regarded to the Koreans at that time as "beautiful". The ei part is likely due to its appearance, mistaken for a "ray". (Can this(+) etymology be sourced?)

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

(hiragana かれい, katakana カレイ, rōmaji karei, historical hiragana かれひ, historical katakana カレヒ)

  1. righteye flounder (flounder of the family Pleuronectidae)
