EtymologyEdit

First attested in the Neung-eomgyeong eonhae (楞嚴經諺解 / 능엄경언해), 1461, as Middle Korean  (Yale: cyes). Also recorded in the same book as (jyeot) (Yale: cyec). Perhaps from Goguryeo 濟次齊次 (*cec)[1].

PronunciationEdit

  • IPA(key): [t͡ɕʌ̹t̚]
  • Phonetic hangeul: []
Revised Romanization? jeot
Revised Romanization (translit.)? jeoj
