góc (𣃺, 𣍂, 𧣳, 𫈅)

  1. a corner (space in the angle between converging lines or walls)
    (Can we date this quote?), Nguyễn Hải Phong (lyrics and music), “Góc tối [Dark Corner]”:
    Giữa góc tối đó, ai đang co ro, ai đang như thân cò.
    Nơi giá buốt lạ lùng, tiếng khóc ngại ngùng.
    Nắng gió khắp lối, tôi đi muôn nơi, tôi đây quen lâu rồi.
    Vẫn cứ thế mình tôi.
    Góc tối.
    In that dark corner, someone's shivering, someone frail as an stork.
    A strange frosty place, a bashful cry.
    Sunlight and wind in every street, I'm going to every place, I'm so used to it.
    Just like that, just me by myself.
    The dark corner.
  2. (mathematics) an angle
