Etymology 1Edit

First attested in the Hunmin jeongeum haerye (訓民正音解例 / 훈민정음해례), 1446, as Middle Korean 실〯 (Yale: sǐl), from disyllabic Old Korean 糸利 (*SIli) attested as an element in a sixth-century personal name, usually connected to Old Chinese (OC *slɯ, “silk”). If so, related to Ancient Greek Σήρ (Sḗr, China), English silk.

PronunciationEdit

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