Etymology 1Edit

Kanji in this term

Grade: 2

Grade: 2
Irregular

From Old Japanese. Originally a compound of ‎(ke, this) +‎ ‎(asa, morning).

The initial /ke/ is an alternative form of the initial /ko/ (, “this”) seen in words such as ここ ‎(koko, this place → here) or これ ‎(kore, this [nominal] → this), and the final /sa/ is a contraction from */ke.asa/ to /kesa/ with the medial -a- falling out, as Old Japanese did not permit vowel clusters.

The use of the kanji ‎(now) instead of ‎(this) is an example of jukujikun.
