Korean[edit]

Etymology[edit]

First attested in the Gugeupbang eonhae (救急方諺解 / 구급방언해), 1466, as Middle Korean 걸〯티다〮 (Yale: kělthì-tá). From 걸— (geol-, “to hang”) + (ti-, emphatic suffix) + (da).

Pronunciation[edit]

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