【中文摘要】“闽”在古代字书只有平声的反切，音近“蛮”或“民”，闽地读音也只有平声的文白读，现代官话多读同“闵”（上声)是后来的变读，依“名从主人”原则，应定为“min阳平”。“闽”古时是族称，也是国名和方言的称谓，还反映了蛇的图腾崇拜，与福建及周边地区的历史文化信仰都有深刻的联系，是研究闽地历史、闽语、闽文化乃至东南海洋文化所必须深究的重要概念。 【Abstract】In ancient Chinese wordbooks，there is only the even tone Fanqie of “闽”，which sounds like “蛮” or “民”，And there is also only the even tone pronunciation in Fujian. In modern mandarin，“闽”is primarily pronounced as “闵”(the falling-rising tone)，which should be standardized as “min”(the rising tone) according to the rule of “adaptation to original names”. In ancient times，“闽”was the ethnic name and the name of country and dialect as well. Moreover ，it also reflects the totem worship of snakes and has a deep connection to the historical and cultural worship of Fujian and its surrounding areas. Therefore，“闽”is an important concept，which should be thoroughly studied when researching the history，dialect and culture of Min and the southeast oceanic culture.
