Stroke order for ㄷ (d)

Korean

Etymology

The traditional account* states that ㄷ d is derived from n by the addition of a stroke (ㄴ而ㄷ [] 其因聲加畫). However, Gari Ledyard proposes instead that ㄷ d is borrowed from Phagspa d, ultimately from Tibetand, and that it is n which is derived by the removal of a stroke.
