Korean[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Nativisation of the Sino-Korean term 가가 (假家, gaga, “temporary house”). The word by extension came to mean "street stall". First attested with the noun-deriving suffix (Yale: -y) as Middle Korean 가〯개〮 (Yale: kǎkáy) in a 1460s copy of Samgang haengsildo (三綱行實圖 / 삼강행실도).

Pronunciation[edit]

  • (SK Standard/Seoul) IPA(key): [ˈka̠(ː)ɡe̞]
    • (file)
  • Phonetic hangul: [(ː)]
    • Though still prescriptive in Standard Korean, the great majority of speakers (in both Koreas) no longer distinguish vowel length.
