Korean[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Doubled (digeut)

Symbol[edit]

‎(tt)

  1. A jamo (letter) of the alphabet of the Korean writing system, hangeul.
    In North Korea, ㄸ is called 된디읃 (doendieut), "strong ㄷ (dieut)" and is the sixteenth jamo. In South Korea, it is called 쌍디귿 (ssangdigeut), "doubled ㄷ (digeut)" and is the fifth jamo.
    ㄸ is pronounced as an alveolar plosive with tense phonation (IPA: [t͈] or [d̬]), i.e. similar to the English t in stand, but with a stiff tongue and glottal opening.
