About the Korean Language

Koreanis the official code of both North Korea and South Korea. It is moreover among the 2 official languages in the Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture in China. There are about 80 million Korean speakers, with big groups in numerous Post-Soviet states, and in different diaspora populations in China, Australia, the United States, Canada, Brazil, Japan, and more lately, the Philippines.

The genealogical category of the Korean code is debated. Many linguists put it in the Altaic code family, but some consider it to be a code isolate. It is agglutinative in its morphology and SOV in its syntax. Like the Japanese and Vietnamese languages, Korean code was influenced by the Chinese code in the shape of Sino-Korean words. Native Korean words account for about 35% of the Korean vocabulary, while about 60% of the Korean vocabulary consists of Sino-Korean words. The remaining 5% originates from loan words from different languages, 90% of that are from English.
Names

The Korean names for the code are based found on the names for Korea chosen in North and South Korea.

In North Korea and Yanbian in China, the code is usually called Chosŏnmal , or even more formally, Chosŏnŏ.

In the Republic of Korea, the code is usually called Hangukmal , or even more formally, Hangugeo or Gugeo . It is often colloquially called Urimal ("our language"; in 1 word in South Korea, with a room in North Korea).

On the additional hand, Korean folks in the previous USSR, who refer to themselves as Koryo-saram call the code Goryeomal .

Classification

The category of the contemporary Korean code is unsure, and due to the deficiency of any 1 commonly accepted theory, it happens to be often described conservatively as a code isolate.

Since the publication of the post of Ramstedt in 1926, countless linguists help the hypothesis that Korean is classified as an Altaic code, or as a relative of proto-Altaic. Korean is synonymous to Altaic languages in that they both lack certain grammatical ingredients, including amount, gender, articles, fusional morphology, voice, and relative pronouns (Kim Namkil). Korean particularly bears some morphological resemblance to some languages of the Eastern Turkic group, namely Sakha (Yakut). Vinokurova, a scholar of the Sakha code, noted that like in Korean, and unlike in alternative Turkic languages or perhaps a range of alternative languages surveyed, adverbs in Sakha are derived from verbs with derivational morphology; but, she didn't recommend this implied any relation between your 2 languages.

It is furthermore considered probably that Korean is connected in some method to Japanese, since the 2 languages have a synonymous grammatical structure. Genetic relationships have been postulated both straight and indirectly, the latter either through placing both languages in the Altaic family, or by arguing for a relationship between Japanese and the Buyeo languages of Goguryeo and Baekje (see below); the proposed Baekje relationship is supported also by phonological similarities including the general deficiency of consonant-final sounds, and by cognates like Baekje mir, Japanese mi- "three". Additionally, there are recognized cultural hyperlinks between Baekje and Japan; famous evidence shows that, in addition to playing a big character in the founding and development of Yamato Japan, most Baekje upper classes, and also the artisans and merchants, fled to Japan when the kingdom fell (a theory which was endorsed by Japanese Emperor Akihito in a speech marking his 68th birthday).

Others argue, yet, that the similarities are not due to any hereditary relationship, but quite to a sprachbund impact. See East Asian languages for morphological attributes shared among languages of the East Asian sprachbund, and Japanese code category for further details found on the possible relationship.

Of the historic languages attested in the Korean Peninsula, contemporary Korean is believed to be a descendent of the languages of Samhan and Silla; it happens to be unknown whether these are connected to the Buyeo languages, though several Korean scholars believe they were mutually intelligible, and the collective basis of what in the Goryeo period would merge to become Middle Korean (the code before the changes that the Seven-Year War brought) and eventually Modern Korean. The Jeju dialect preserves some archaic attributes that will moreover be found in Middle Korean, whose arae a is retained in the dialect as a distinct vowel.

There are additionally fringe theories proposing other relationships; for illustration, a limited linguists including Homer B. Hulbert have equally tried to relate Korean to the Dravidian languages through the synonymous syntax in both.

Dialects

Korean dialects

Korean has many dialects (called mal [virtually "speech"], saturi, or bang-eon in Korean). The standard code (pyojuneo or pyojunmal) of South Korea is based found on the dialect of the region around Seoul, and the standard for North Korea is based found on the dialect spoken around P'yŏngyang. These dialects are synonymous, and are on the contrary all mutually intelligible, possibly with all the exception of the dialect of Jeju Island (see Jeju Dialect). The dialect spoken in Jeju is truth be told classified as a different code by some Korean linguists. One of the many notable variations between dialects is the utilization of stress: speakers of Seoul dialect utilize strain extremely little, and standard South Korean has a quite flat intonation; found on the alternative hand, speakers of the Gyeongsang dialect have a especially pronounced intonation.

It is moreover value noting that there is significant evidence for a history of extensive dialect levelling, or convergent development or intermixture of 2 or even more initially distinct linguistic stocks, in the Korean code as well as its dialects. Many Korean dialects have simple vocabulary that is etymologically distinct from vocabulary of identical meaning in Standard Korean or different dialects, like South Jeolla dialect /kur/ vs. Standard Korean /ip/ "mouth" or Gyeongsang dialect / vs. Standard Korean / "garlic chives." This suggests that the Korean Peninsula will have at once been more linguistically diverse than it's at present..

There is a quite close connection amongst the dialects of Korean and the parts of Korea, since the boundaries of both are mostly determined by mountains and seas. Here is a list of conventional dialect names and locations:
