Etymology 7[edit]

Modern Korean reading of various Chinese characters, from the Middle Korean reading (Yale: nal).

Etymology 8[edit]

Modern South Korean reading of various Chinese characters in isolation or as the first element of a compound, which was also true of most dialects (both North and South) in 1945. From Middle Korean (Yale: lal); when preceded by another character in a compound, they retain the original (ral) form.

In the North Korean standard, they are always read as (ral), but this is an artificial imposition intended to standardize Sino-Korean readings, which did not reflect any major dialect's pronunciation in 1945.
