Proto-Japanese: *ántá Meaning: useless, vain Russian meaning: бесполезный, напрасный Middle Japanese: ada Tokyo: adá Kyoto: ádà Kagoshima: adá Comments: JLTT 376. The word is usually confused etymologically with *áta 'foe', which seems, however, to have a different origin. Modern accentuation points to *ántá, but it may be secondary because of this confusion.
