Romanization[edit]

engi

  1. rōmaji reading of えんぎ

Mimi of Decorse[edit]

Etymology[edit]

The term is superficially similar to Maba(n) *anǯi, but Starostin notes that "the attested isogloss is between Mimi-D and Maba, as opposed to Mimi-D and Maban in general", so it might be a loan; similar terms are used for "rain" in a number of other nearby languages.
