Etymology 1[edit]

염소 (yeomso)

First attested in the Beonyeok nogeoldae (飜譯老乞大 / 번역노걸대), 1517, as Middle Korean 염〮쇼〮 (Yale: yémsyó), from 염〮 (Yale: yém, “goat”) + 쇼〮 (Yale: syó, “cow”); the former element is no longer used outside this compound.

Noun[edit]

염소 (yeomso) (counter 마리)

  1. goat (horned domestic animal)
Usage notes[edit]
  • In Chinese and Japanese, the word for "goat" is 山羊. But in Korean, the equivalent 산양(山羊) (sanyang) usually refers to the unrelated long-tailed goral. The "goat" sense is attested but rare.
