Proto-Japanese: *us-
Altaic etymology: Altaic etymology
Meaning: to lose, get lost, disappear
Russian meaning: терять, теряться, пропадать
Old Japanese: usa-, usi-nap-
Middle Japanese: úsá-, úsí-náf-
Tokyo: usé-, ùshina-
Kyoto: ùsè-, úshíná-
Kagoshima: usé-, ushiná-
Comments: JLTT 780. Accent reconstruction is not quite clear: for *usinap- 'to lose' the pattern *HHH is more or less secure, but for *usa- it seems best to reconstruct *ùsá- (indicated by Tokyo and Kyoto). We may actually be dealing with two original roots heavily interacting with each other.
