Meaning: foal, colt
Russian meaning: жеребенок, жеребец
Old Japanese: kwoma
Middle Japanese: kómá
Tokyo: kóma, komá
Kyoto: kòmá
Kagoshima: kóma
Comments: JLTT 455. The accent is somewhat unclear (Kyoto is quite aberrant, but Tokyo and Kagoshima may still point to a high tone on the first syllable). The word is usually treated as kwo 'child' + uma 'horse', but the order of the components is quite unusual.
