갤마 (gaelma, infinitive of the verb 갤마다 (gaelmada)) + 주다 (juda, auxiliary verb forming benefactive verbs). The first verb is of uncertain etymology; it presumably means "to teach", but is almost never used outside this single compound verb.
- Mainly used in the city of Changwon and its environs such as Miryang or Gimhae. Seems not to be used in nearby Busan.
- Other Gyeongsang varieties have 갤춰주다 (gaelchwojuda), 갈차주다 (galchajuda), etc., where the first verb is the general word for "to teach" and which corresponds directly to Standard 가르쳐주다 (gareucheojuda).
