First attested in the Seokbo sangjeol (釋譜詳節 / 석보상절), 1447, as Middle Korean 모〮ᄀᆡ〮 (Yale: mwókóy).

Pronunciation[edit]

  • (SK Standard/Seoul) IPA(key): [ˈmo̞(ː)ɡi]
  • Phonetic hangul: [(ː)]
    • Though still prescriptive in Standard Korean, most speakers in both Koreas no longer distinguish vowel length.
