EtymologyEdit

From Middle Korean 뷔〯다〮 (Yale: pwǔy-tá), 븨〯다〮 (Yale: pǔy-tá).

First attested in the Yongbi eocheonga (龍飛御天歌 / 용비어천가), 1447, as Middle Korean 뷔〯다〮 (Yale: pwǔy-tá).

PronunciationEdit

  • (SK Standard/Seoul) IPA(key): [ˈpi(ː)da̠]
  • Phonetic hangul: [(ː)]
    • Though still prescriptive in Standard Korean, the great majority of speakers (in both Koreas) no longer distinguish vowel length.
