EtymologyEdit

Sino-Korean word from 恐龍, from (fearful) + (dragon), from an orthographic borrowing from Japanese 恐竜 (kyōryū, dinosaur). (Can this(+) etymology be sourced?)

PronunciationEdit

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