I am currently researching phonetic components, and I am puzzled by 良.
There are lots of phonetic compounds, and they all have the same (main) ON reading.
Problem: the reading is ろう! This reading only appears as number seven in jisho Japanese name readings, not so convincing for “let’s just read everything that way”.
Side note: 良 was also the basis for hiragana and katakana … ら and ラ (???)
Does anyone know whats wrong with 良?
