Etymology 1[edit]

First attested in the Hunmin jeongeum haerye (訓民正音解例 / 훈민정음해례), 1446, as Middle Korean 깁〯 (Yale: kǐp).

Displaced by Mandarin loanword 비단 (緋緞, bidan).

Pronunciation[edit]

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