Talk:Cathay

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

I am missing the correct pronunciation: stressed on first or second syllable, with or without English "-th-"... e.g. ca-THAI or KE-they or...

It’s ka-THAI. —Stephen 13:22, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

Etymology[edit]

I'm a bit picky but Catai is attested in Devisement du monde, by Marco Polo in the XIII century. First etymon is not portuguese but old French. What do you think?
