Doubled ㅂ (bieup)
ㅃ • (pp)
- A digraph of Hangul, the Korean alphabet.
- In North Korea, ㅃ is called 된비읍 (doenbieup), "strong ㅂ (bieup)".
In South Korea, it is called 쌍비읍 (ssangbieup), "doubled ㅂ (bieup)".
- ㅃ is pronounced as an bilabial plosive with tense phonation (IPA: [p͈] or [b̬]), i.e. similar to the English p, but with a stiff tongue and glottal opening.
In Dongguk Jeongun(東國正韻), this letter was used to transcribe voiced bilabial plosive(/b/) of Middle Chinese.
