EtymologyEdit

NounEdit

重箱読(じゅうばこよ) (jūbakoyomi (kyūjitai 重箱讀み, historical kana ぢゆうばこよみ)

  1. (linguistics) a reading pattern for kanji-compound words, using the Chinese-derived on'yomi for the first portion, and the native Japanese kun'yomi for the second portion

Usage notesEdit

Defined in some sources[1][4][5] as applying only to two-character terms. Other sources[6][7] define this as also applying more broadly to any single word where the first portion is read with the on and the second portion with the kun. No sources define this as applying to multi-word terms.
