    Yui‘ (唯) means “only,” ‘itsu/ichi‘ (一) means “one,” ‘mu‘ (無) means “nothing” or “no,” and ‘ni‘ (二) means “two.”
    「唯」は “only”、「一」は “one”、「無」は “nothing/no”、「二」は “two” を意味します。

    Therefore, ‘yuiitsu‘ (唯一) means “only one,” ‘muni‘ (無二) means “there are not two,” and the combination is “it is only one, there are no same things.”
    このため、「唯一」は “only one”、「無二」は “there are not two” という意味であり、「唯一無二」は “it is only one, there are no same things” となります。
