The Korean Languageby S. R. Anderson, Sohn Ho-Min, Ho-Min Sohn
Pub. Date: 11/28/2006
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
This book offers a comprehensive introduction to the linguistics of Korean. It presents essential facts about the language: its speakers, its relation to other languages of the world, historical development, dialects (including the differences between South and North Korean), writing systems, the composition and structure of words, and sound patterns and syntax. It provides a wealth of examples and user-friendly descriptions that do not presuppose advanced knowledge of either linguistic theory or Korean on the part of the reader.
