Korean[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Japanese タバコ (tabako) or たばこ (tabako, tobacco). Found in 1614 as 담파고 (Yale: tamphakwo, 淡婆姑), and thereafter as 담파귀 (tamphakwi), 담바 (tampa), 담ᄇᆡ (tampoy).

Pronunciation[edit]

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