東京にいるソフトウェア開発者です。 最近は主にC#関連の開発をやっているが、C/C++もJavaにも経験があります。

一応日本語も英語も出来ますが、英語は中々使えなくて毎年少しずつ忘れている気がします。

日本語の歴史的変遷や語源に興味津々で大学で勉強してきました。 特に奈良と平安時代の上古~中古日本語が詳しい。 残念乍ら、その研究で中々生活が出来ず、代わりにソフトウェア開発をやっています。

他に韓国語にも興味はありますが、得意とはまだ言えません。

A software developer.

I am fluent in English and Japanese.

In my free time, I enjoy reading. I have a background in historical Japanese linguistics.

(I ran out of space.) As you likely know, early 平仮名 and 片仮名 lacked a facility to distinguish voice. Even after such a method became available, it was not regularly used like it is in modern Japanese. With all of that in mind, if you reconsider this later scribe, it makes sense why he (or she, doubtful) may not be as precise as we scholars may have hoped.

Even though 万葉仮名 has the ability to distinguish between non-voiced and voiced consonants, that distinction is not always made, even in 万葉集. It appears that you have 時代別国語大辞典:上代編, so please read the section 仮名の清濁 on page 29. Quote: 万葉集では、清音仮名をもって濁音を写したと見なされる場合がややふえる(略). Further, as the above quote indicates, a review of the various manuscripts indicates that this notation is not found in most of the other manuscripts. As indicated, it is likely to have been added later. Further, that person likely translated the now old word サブシ into the newer サビシ, while 1) not distinguishing voice or 2) 甲乙.

From 新日本古典文学大系 萬葉集三 (ISBN 4-00-240003-4), page 453: 西本願寺本などには「一云左必之佐」の注記があるが、天治本・類聚古集・広瀬本など非仙覚本系の諸本にはそれがない。また、「左必之佐」の「必」は甲類の仮名であるが、「‌​寂しさ」の意ならば「び」の仮名は乙類でなければならない。「一云左必佐」の本文は、後世の鼠入と思われる(有坂秀世『国語音韻史の研究』)。
