Japanese etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Japanese: *bǝ́rì
Altaic etymology: Altaic etymology
Meaning: time, occasion
Russian meaning: время, случай
Middle Japanese: wórì
Tokyo: orí
Kyoto: órì
Kagoshima: orí
Comments: Accent is not quite clear: RJ has wórì, but modern dialects (except Kyoto which is ambiguous) point rather to *bǝ̀rì. This may be explained by a folk-etymological influence of *bǝ̀r- 'to bend'.
