EtymologyEdit

Kanji in this term

Grade: S
kun'yomi

Unclear. One theory is that this is a native Japanese term, with the su reading somehow related to the way that very sour things cause one to pucker.

Given that vinegar was historically introduced to Japan in the 300-400s from China, another possibility is that the su reading is from Middle Chinese or instead, and that this naturalized and came to be regarded as a native kun'yomi rather than a Chinese-derived on'yomi. Compare modern Mandarin reading or Cantonese cou3.
