Etymology[edit]

First attested in the Seokbo sangjeol (釋譜詳節 / 석보상절), 1447, as Middle Korean 걷〯나다〮 (Yale: kětnàtá). From 걷— (geot-) + 나— (na-).

Pronunciation[edit]

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