KoreanEdit

EtymologyEdit

Doubled (siot)

SymbolEdit

(ss)

  1. A digraph of Hangul, the Korean alphabet.
    In North Korea, ㅆ is called 된시읏 (doensieut), "strong ㅅ (sieut)". In South Korea, it is called 쌍시옷 (ssangsiot), "doubled ㅅ (siot)".
    ㅆ is pronounced as a sibilant with tense phonation (IPA: [s͈] or [z̬]), i.e. similar to the English s, but with a stiff tongue and glottal opening.

Historical usageEdit

In Dongguk Jeongun(東國正韻), this letter was used to transcribe voiced alveolar fricative(/z/) of Middle Chinese.
