Old KoreanEdit

Etymology 1Edit

Most likely from the Old Chinese initial of (OC *hli). Other, but less likely, hypotheses include that it was a graphic abbreviation of some other character with initial */l/ (but no such character has been easily identified), or that it was invented in Korea (but there would appear to be no motivation for this, given the commonness of /l/ in all stages of Chinese).

PhonogramEdit

(*-l or *-lh)

  1. A consonantal phonogram denoting coda consonant *-l or *-lh.
    (road, logogram) + ‎ (*-l, coda-marking phonogram) → ‎道尸 (*KIl(h), road)
    (two, logogram) + ‎ (*-l, coda-marking phonogram) → ‎二尸 (*TWUPUl(h), two)
Usage notesEdit

Note that Old Korean distinguished liquid (*-l) and rhotic (*-r), though the two merged in Middle Korean.

Etymology 3Edit

ParticleEdit

(*-lq or *-q or *-s)

  1. A genitive case marker chiefly attested after honored animate nouns.
Usage notesEdit

There is a strong argument that represents an allomorphic variant of the well-known genitive particle (*-s) rather than an independent genitive case marker. Middle Korean (-lq) and Modern Korean (-l) both have the effect of tensing a subsequent consonant. Tensing was also one of the major allomorphs of Middle Korean (-s), see ㅅ#Alternative forms, and is virtually the sole effect of Modern Korean (-s-). Therefore, Old Korean was most likely used to denote the tensing effect of (*-s).

This notion is further supported by the fact that Middle Korean (-s) is the regular reflex of . For instance, Old Korean 尸中 (*qkuy, honorific dative marker) > Middle Korean ᄭᅴ (skuy, id.) > Modern Korean (kke, id.)
