-(이)란

 

I know that -(이)라는 is short for -(이)라고 하는 and that -(이)란 is short for -(이)라는 것은.

But can -(이)란 ever be short for just -(이)라는?

감사합니다!

    Never.:)
    It's because "(이)란" has the subject marker "은/는" in it, meaning, it can be a subject or topic in a sentence, but "-는" as in "-라는" is used to modify nouns.
    The same form, but different usage.:)
