렴 • (ryeom)
Korean reading of various Chinese characters.
- 염 (yeom) (South Korea)
In South Korea, the hanja above are read as 염 (yeom) when used as a single word or as the first syllable of a Sino-Korean compound. However, the reading 렴 (ryeom) is retained when the hanja is not part of the first syllable of a Sino-Korean compound. This is known as 두음 법칙 (頭音法則, dueum beopchik).
