Kanji in this term
ろく
Grade: 4
goon
Alternative spelling
(non-legal)

Substitute spelling for (roku, six),[6][7][2] likely borrowed from similar usage of written Chinese (six).

Pronunciation

edit

Noun

edit

(ろく) (roku

  1. (financial, archaic) the number six, 6 (used only in legal documents, otherwise )
Usage notes
edit

Legal uses arose due to the relative ease with which certain number kanji can be fraudulently altered to look like other number kanji. For instance, (ichi, one) could be modified to look like (roku, six), but it cannot be modified to look like (roku, six, in legal contexts).
