- To the best of my knowledge, the question of the origin of Middle Korean (MK) tone has not been asked. Although the present situation of studies on MK tones does, not constitute a sufficient ground for the investigation of the mechanism of "tonogenesis" , I will attempt to make inquiries about the origin of MK tone in the light of available theories of tonogenesis.
