Continuing the #cicada theme since its summer in my hemisphere

A note on the Vietnamese. Most dictionaries list the Vietnamese NON sinitic word and not the SV SinoVietnamese "Literary"  equivalent so this is one case of Sinitic loanwords not dominating the Austroasiatic original ! Japanese haiku poets also prefer to use SEMI over SEN.
