Glyph originEdit

A Korean-coined Han character (국자 (國字, gukja)). Ideogrammic compound (會意): (water) + (field). The sound is obtained from similar (, dap).

A Hanja domestically coined in Korea. Since there is no Chinese character for rice paddy, Koreans originally used 水田 in vertical writing. From the idea of conventional vertical writing, an ancient person in the Silla kindom began to write it as a vertically conjoined new Hanja 畓 and it became a norm. They already had a native Korean word 논 for rice paddy but the Sino-Korean pronunciation for this new Hanja didn't exist, so probably they assigned a new pronunciation taken from an existing similar looking Hanja 沓, which is 답. In December 2019, a wooden stick from Silla was excavated and 畓 was written on it. The date is estimated to be around 500 AD, which is the oldest record of 畓 so far. The second oldest record of 畓 is found in a monument of Silla, which dates back to 561 AD.
