Ancient Chinese[edit]

Could we get the ancient Chinese pronunciation of this? I'm interested. Badagnani 10:15, 24 November 2006 (UTC)

According to Guangyun, the middle Chinese pronunciation would have been something like [ ǐak ][1]. In modern Min Nan, it is [ iɔk˥˥ ], which is not that far off. It would not surprise me if the Cantonese pronunciation were also somewhere in the ballpark.
