Etymology

Old English filmen, membrane, skin from West Germanic *filminjan (cf. Old Frisian filmene, skin, Old English fell hide), extended from Proto Germanic. *fello(m) animal hide, from Proto-Indo-European *pello-/*pelno- (cf. Greek pella, Latin pellis skin). Sense of a thin coat of something is 1577, extended by 1845 to the coating of chemical gel on photographic plates. By 1895 this also meant the coating plus the paper or celluloid.

Turkish

Pronunciation

  • IPA: /fɪlɪm/

Note: The pronunciation is different because film is a loanword, and all Turkish words never have two consonants together at the same time. Therefore, this makes it hard for Turks to say loanwords with two consonants together, and they end up pronouncing "film" as "filim".

Noun

film

  1. a medium used to capture images in a camera
  2. a movie
