Korean[edit]

Etymology[edit]

First attested in the Bullyu dugongbu si eonhae (分類杜工部詩諺解 / 분류두공부시언해), 1481, as Middle Korean 누러ᄒᆞ다 (Yale: nwulehota). Originally the 하— (ha-) form of 누르— (nureu-).

Pronunciation[edit]

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