Etymology 10Edit

Modern Korean reading of various Chinese characters in isolation or as the first element of a compound. As the non-initial element of a compound, they are read as (ryang).

In North Korea, after a language reform in the mid-twentieth century intended to make Sino-Korean readings uniform, they are always read as (ryang)in all environments.
