    Default Help with kanji.

    I was translating this Asriel song, and I came across this kanji "吟ふ". All the dictionaries I checked said it should be "Gin", but what I hear her sing is something like "Sofayou", which I'm sure is not correct. Then again, I have no idea what she's singing. Can anyone help? The song is [HARM] by Asriel.

    Anything that ends with -fu is likely -u because of archaic form, a frequent example is 思ふ which is still read as 'omou'. So changing 吟ふ into 吟う yields these two dictionary entries: goo, Yahoo

    Wow. I've never thought of 'samayou' having that kind of meaning to the word ("wailing").

    祝! 『禁断の病棟』 アニメ化!

    That does make it interesting; and I didn't know about archaic forms. Thanks for the help! It pretty much explains everything.
