Muong edit

Etymology edit

From Proto-Vietic *ʔɛh. Cognate with Vietnamese ỉa (to shit).

In Mường Bi (and pretty much all Muong lects, per Ngữ âm tiếng Mường qua các phương ngôn), this word is both a verb and a noun, unlike the Vietnamese word, which is strictly verbal. The cognate of Vietnamese cứt seems to be lost in all Muong lects.

Verb edit

é

  1. (Mường Bi) to take a shit

Noun edit

é

  1. (Mường Bi) shit
