セロハン (serohan): printed and transparent cellophane wrappers.

Etymology[edit]

Borrowing from French cellophane.[1]

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

セロハン (romaji serohan)

  1. cellophane

Alternative forms[edit]

Usage notes[edit]

The alternative form セロファン (serofan) appears to be slowly replacing the serohan form, perhaps in reflection of growing acceptance and familiarity of the fa phoneme, which only appears in borrowed words.
