Etymology[edit]

Of native Korean origin.

Noun[edit]

(neol)

  1. panel, board, plank
  2. seesaw, teeter-totter : a structure composed of a plank, balanced in the middle, used as a game in which one person goes up as the other goes down
  3. coffin, casket

Synonyms[edit]

  • 널빤지 (neolppanji)
  • 널판지 (neolpanji)
  • 널판대기 (neolpandaegi)

Derived terms[edit]

널 뛰기 or acrobatic seesawing.
  • 다리 (neol-dari) wooden footbridge
  • 뛰다 (neol-ttwida) To play the Korean traditional seesaw, literally "to jump on the plank".
  • 뛰기 (neol-ttwigi) Korean acrobatic seesawing, or makeshift jumping on the plank.
  • 널 판() (neol pan) The neol in native Korean is the same as the pan in Sino-Korean. Its compound neolpan regardless of the suffixes almost sounds like an anagram of panel. Perhaps it is needed to avoid confusion with the coffin.
