EtymologyEdit

/ipa yu ru//ifayuru//iwayuru/

Originally a compound of Old Japanese 言は (ipa), the 未然形 (mizenkei, imperfective form) of verb 言ふ (ipu), modern 言う (iu, to say) iwa + (-yu, grammatical suffix) + (-ru, attributive suffix). (Can this(+) etymology be sourced?)

The kanji spelling is jukujikun (熟字訓), borrowed from Chinese 所謂.
