EtymologyEdit

Compound of (shimo, lower) +‎ 一段活用 (ichidan katsuyō, monograde conjugation).

Literally, 下一段 (shimo ichidan) refers to how the inflected endings are located in the gojūon table. (shimo) means the vowel e, which is written beneath the vowel i, the other inflection-related vowel. 一段 (ichidan, one grade) means only one vowel is involved, since each (dan, row) of the table contains one vowel. Thus, this can be understood as "one-voweled conjugation in e".

PronunciationEdit

  • (Tokyo) もいちだんかつよー [shìmó íchídáń káꜜtsùyòò] (Nakadaka – [7])[1]
  • IPA(key): [ɕimo̞ it͡ɕidã̠ŋ ka̠t͡sɨᵝjo̞ː]
