EtymologyEdit

First attested in the Jīlín lèishì (鷄林類事 / 계림유사), 1103, as Late Old Korean 丫妲 (Yale: *àtól), probably a compound of an ancient root for "son" *àt- + suffix *-ól; compare Jilin leishi 寶妲 (Yale: *pòtól, “daughter”), apparently equivalent to *pòt- + *-ól,[1] whence modern (ttal, daughter).

In the Hangul script, first attested in the Yongbi eocheonga (龍飛御天歌 / 용비어천가), 1447, as Middle Korean 아ᄃᆞᆯ〮 (Yale: àtól).

PronunciationEdit
