Korean[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From 개가 (改嫁, gaega, “remarriage”) and the native Korean verb 하다 (hada, “to do”).

Pronunciation[edit]

  • (SK Standard/Seoul) IPA(key): [ˈkɛ(ː)ɡa̠ɦa̠da̠] ~ [ˈke̞(ː)ɡa̠ɦa̠da̠]
  • Phonetic hangeul: [(ː)/(ː)]
    • Though still prescriptive in Standard Korean, the great majority of speakers (in both Koreas) no longer distinguish vowel length.
