Proto-Japanese: *bǝ́rì 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'.
