오름[edit | edit source]

RR : oreum [1]
  1. (오름 1) mountain, mount (Jeju dialect) [2]
  2. (오름 2) rising, mounting (gerund)
  • Korean 오름 (oreum, "rising") is the gerund of 오르다 (oreuda, "to rise"), while Japanese あがり (agari, "rising") of あがる (agaru, "to rise"). The former is homonymous to a Jeju dialect meaning "mount, mountain", while the latter to an Okinawan dialect meaning "east". However, it is noted that the homonymous in either pair are most likely descended from the same mother verb, hence cognates rather than homonyms. In parallel, such kinships are found evident in Greek and Latin, as well. For example, Latin orior ("to rise") may well give birth to oriens ("east"),[8] ortus ("sunrise, birth"), and origo ("origin, birth"), while Ancient Greek ὀρῑ́νω (orino, "to stir, rouse, arouse") somewhat dubiously to όρος (oros, “mount, mountain”),[9] and ὄρνις (ornis, "bird"). You may miss the Greek intransitive counterpart of Latin orior ("to rise"), whose motherly role Greek ανατέλλω (anatello, "to rise") may instead come to play in bearing ανατολή (anatolí, "sunrise, east") and Ανατολία (Anatolía, "Anatolia, Asia Minor") as the land of "sunrise, east" of Greece! And, such local and global parallelism must be either casual or causal, whether in part or in all. As "animating principles" or reasons, the lives matter anyway!
