Etymology[edit]

Borrowed from Spanish macan (bruised), an inflection of macar (to bruise), although according to Manuel (1948), it is supposedly from Macao, due to Noceda & Sanlucar (1860) defining it as "Arroz de tubigan, bueno y oloroso, uno es blanco y otro colorado. Vino la semilla de Macan." and an early account of Fr. Domingo de Salazar (1583) saying that they have located it at "la ysla de Macan, donde viven los Portugueses que estan junto a la ciudad de Cantón, en la China,...".

Pronunciation[edit]

  • Hyphenation: ma‧kan
  • IPA(key): /maˈkan/, [mɐˈxan]
