Korean[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From 소중 (所重, sojung, “preciousness”) and the native Korean adjective 하다 (hada, “to be a certain way”).

Pronunciation[edit]

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