Comments: Used also for homonymous *lǝj 'name of non-Chinese tribes; barbarian' and *lǝj 'be at rest, at ease, peaceful'; somewhat later also for *lǝj 'rule, custom'. Viet. lì 'level; motionless' is an archaic loan; regular Sino-Viet. is di. Another old loan from the same source may be Viet. lo'i 'to loosen, slacken, ease'.
