바독 • (badok)
- (Early Modern) Obsolete form of .
Predominant throughout the Early Modern period (up to c. 1900).
Most likely 밭 (pàth, “cultivated field”) + *돍〯 (twǒlk, “stone”), in reference to the checkerboard lines resembling a plowed field and the stones used to play the game (Martin 1996, p. 36). Other etymologies for the first element have been speculatively offered but are not plausible.
