Vietnamese[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Vietic *ʔa-lɔːʔ (paddy rice). Compare Nghệ An/Hà Tĩnh dialects ; cognate with Arem /alɑːˀ/.

According to Ferlus, it is a loanword from Old Chinese (OC *l'uːʔ) (SV: đạo), in turn related to Proto-Mon-Khmer *sruʔ (paddy rice) and Proto-Mon-Khmer *t₂rawʔ ~ *t₂raaw() (taro). Ferlus reasons that the two different plants share the same ecological farming niche, thus facilitating semantic shift from "taro" to "rice".[1] Shorto notes a dubious connection between Proto-Vietic *ʔa-lɔːʔ and Proto-Mon-Khmer *s-ruʔ (paddy).[2]

Pronunciation[edit]
