Particularly: “What is jamaek? How does it derive from 잠그— (jamgeu-)? And the definition given on the 잠그— (jamgeu-) entry is to fasten, to lock -- not to dip, submerge.”

From (mul, “water”) and 자맥질 (jamaekjil, “dipping, diving”), the latter from *자맥 (jamaek, “jamaek”) (from 잠그— (jamgeu-, “to dip, submerge”)) and the nominalisation suffix (-jil, “the act of doing ...”).
