Beyond Middle Korean, the dialectal form 아젹 (Yale: acyek, “morning”) > modern 아적 (ajeok, “morning”) is attested since the seventeenth century. Since the Middle Korean consonant ㅊ (Yale: -ch-) is commonly a reflex of pre-Middle Korean consonant sequences ㅈㄱ (Yale: -ck-) or ㄱㅈ (Yale: -kc-), 아젹 (Yale: acyek) may be the more conservative form, and 아ᄎᆞᆷ〮 (Yale: àchóm) may once have been a derived form where 젹 (Yale: -cyek), or the ancient equivalent thereof, has contracted to ㅊ (Yale: -ch-).
