MuongEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Vietic *pɔh (to beat, to hit rice), with extension to "to kill", which then became its dominant meaning. Cognate with Proto-Katuic *pɔh (to beat) (whence Pacoh púh).

The cognate form of Vietnamese giết (to kill) is presumably replaced by this word. Due to the absence of lenition in Muong lects, the reflex of that etymon would be phonetically identical to Muong chít (to die).

PronunciationEdit

VerbEdit

  1. (Mường Bi) to beat; to hit
  2. (Mường Bi, to extension) to kill
