Korean[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Sino-Korean word from 建物, from (to construct) + (thing, object), an orthographic borrowing from Japanese 建物(たてもの) (tatemono).

Pronunciation[edit]

  • (SK Standard/Seoul) IPA(key): [ˈkʌ̹(ː)nmuɭ]
  • Phonetic hangul: [(ː)]
    • Though still prescriptive in Standard Korean, the great majority of speakers (in both Koreas) no longer distinguish vowel length.
