Korean[edit]

Etymology[edit]

First attested in the Bullyu dugongbu si eonhae (分類杜工部詩諺解 / 분류두공부시언해), 1481, as Middle Korean 바독 (Yale: patwok).

The second element is probably related to (dok), a contemporary dialectal word for Standard Korean (dol, “stone”), and thus to Middle Korean (Yale: twolh) "stone", from reconstructed Old Korean *twolok.
