Etymology[edit]

First attested in the Worin seokbo (月印釋譜 / 월인석보), 1459, as Middle Korean 쇠〮 (Yale: swóy).

According to Fukui et al. (2017), this term might be related to Old Chinese (*soːlʔ, to lock), as both share the sense of "key, lock" and the Pyongan dialectal form (swae) coincides with the orthodox Korean reading of (swae).[1]
