Etymology 1

edit
Kanji in this term
くわ
Grade: S
kun’yomi

/kupa//kuɸa//kuwa/

From Old Japanese. First attested in the Nihon Shoki of 720 CE.[1] From Proto-Japonic *kupa.

Ultimate derivation unclear. Definitely not related to Korean (ppong, mulberry tree) or 오디 (odi, mulberry fruit), nor to Ainu テㇱマニ (tesmani, mulberry tree) or ツレㇷ゚ニ (turepni, mulberry tree).

Some theories suggest this might have originally been a compound. Possible derivations may include:

  • A shift from (kopa, silkworm + leaf)
  • A shift from (kopa, non-Chinese people to the west of China + leaf), possibly referencing the origin of some mulberry species in central Asia
  • A contraction of 食ふ (kupu pa, eat + leaf), where kupu is the ancient reading of modern 食う (kuu)

Pronunciation
