Korean[edit]

Etymology[edit]

First attested in the Seokbo sangjeol (釋譜詳節 / 석보상절), 1447, as Middle Korean 그〮림〮 (Yale: kúlím). Substantive form of 그리다 (geurida, “to draw”).

Pronunciation[edit]

  • (SK Standard/Seoul) IPA(key): [ˈkɯ(ː)ɾim]
  • Phonetic hangul: [(ː)]
    • Though still prescriptive in Standard Korean, most speakers in both Koreas no longer distinguish vowel length.
Romanizations
Revised Romanization?geurim
Revised Romanization (translit.)?geulim
McCune–Reischauer?kŭrim
Yale Romanization?kūlim
  • South Gyeongsang (Busan) pitch accent: 그림의 / 그림에 / 그림까지

    Syllables in red take high pitch. This word always takes high pitch on both syllables, and lowers the pitch of subsequent suffixes.

Noun[edit]

    거실 에는 그림 걸려 있었다.
