I am missing the correct pronunciation: stressed on first or second syllable, with or without English "-th-"... e.g. ca-THAI or KE-they or...
- It’s ka-THAI. —Stephen 13:22, 6 January 2009 (UTC)
I'm a bit picky but Catai is attested in Devisement du monde, by Marco Polo in the XIII century. First etymon is not portuguese but old French. What do you think?
- It's not picky at all. The former etymology was utterly bizarre. In any case, the OED derives it directly from medieval Latin not via French. — LlywelynII 21:45, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
