Vietnamese[edit]

Pronunciation[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

From Proto-Vietic *k-saŋ. Cognate with Muong thăng, Arem atʰaŋ, Thavung กะซัง. Shorto (2006) traces Viet-Muong items' etymological origins to Proto-Mon-Khmer *sra(a)ŋ, but this is unlikely as all Vietic cognates point to *-s-.

(classifier cái, chiếc) răng (𦢠, 𪘵)

  1. tooth

Usage notes[edit]
