Etymology[edit]

Sino-Korean word from 半島, from (half) + (island). Possibly a calque of a Western word such as peninsula or Halbinsel.

Pronunciation[edit]

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