Shuowen:麥部》麥:芒穀,秋穜厚薶,故謂之麥。麥,金也。金王而生,火王而死。从來,有穗者;从夊。凡麥之屬皆从麥。
Guangyun:廣韻·入聲··》麥:《白虎通》云:麥金也,金王而生火王而死又姓隋有將軍麥鐵杖嶺南人俗作麦。莫獲切,八。
Kangxi:康熙字典·麥部·麥部》麥:《唐韻》《集韻》莫獲切《韻會》《正韻》莫白切,𠀤音脈。《說文》麥,芒穀,秋種厚薶麥金也。金王而生,火王而死。《禮·月令》孟夏麥秋至。《蔡邕曰》百穀各以初生爲春,熟爲秋。麥以初夏熟,故四月於麥爲秋。又《前漢·武帝紀》勸民種宿麥。《註》師古曰:歲冬種之,經歲乃熟,故云宿麥。又一種蕎麥,一名烏麥。南北皆種之,亦名荍麥。又《爾雅·釋草》蘥雀麥。《註》卽燕麥也。又《爾雅·釋草》大菊蘧麥。《註》大菊,一名麥句薑,卽瞿麥。又姓。《隋書》有麥鐵杖。又《集韻》訖力切,音極。《·鄘風》爰采麥矣,沫之北矣。又《豳風》黍稷重穋,禾麻菽麥。又叶莫故切,音暮。《晉太和末童謠》白門種小麥,叶上路。○按麥从來不从夾,从夊不从夕。來象其實,夊象其根。俗作麥,非。又楊愼謂麥有昧音。引范文正公安撫江淮,進民閒所食烏昧草,謂卽今燕麥也。淮南謂麥爲昧,故史從音爲文,殊不知燕麥卽野稷也。升庵失考,乃引范文正所進烏昧草當之,蓋鳥昧草實蕨也。附辨於此。麥作夾下夂。
