Samuel E. Martin's guide to learning Korean has firmly stood the test of time as thousands of beginning learners continue to attest; his book has remained continuously in print since its original release in 1954.
These are the main changes reflected in the revised edition:
• It now also includes Korean text (Hangeul).
• Some examples and phrases have been updated.
• The romanization system reflects the Korean government's most recent revised romanization method.
Samuel E. Martin received his undergraduate degree and master's degree in Oriental languages from the University of California, Berkeley, and his Ph.D. in linguistics from Yale University. He is the author of numerous books and papers on Japanese and Korean, including the definitive A Reference Grammar of Japanese and A Reference Grammar of Korean.
