KoreanEdit

Etymology 1Edit

From Middle Korean 별〯 (Yale: pyěl), from Old Korean 星利 (*PYEli).

In the Hangul script, first attested in the Hunmin jeongeum haerye (訓民正音解例 / 훈민정음해례), 1446, as Middle Korean 별〯 (Yale: pyěl). Compare dialectal forms 비얼 (bieol), (bael), 베리 (beri), (bil), etc., some of which appear to preserve the original bisyllabic form.

PronunciationEdit

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