Proto-Korean: *tìsài
Altaic etymology: Altaic etymology
Meaning: tile
Russian meaning: черепица
Middle Korean: tìsài
Comments: Nam 179. The word is not attested in modern dictionaries, but KED 920 mentions a bound noun -sä 'roof tile', attested in compounds ok-sä, maŋ-sä and pǝt-sä. It is quite probable that this -sä is a later contraction < *tsä < tisai.
