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.

Contents:

1. Introduction; 2. Genetic affiliation; 3. Historical development;
4. Dialects; 5. Lexicon; 6. Writing systems; 7. Sound patterns;
8. Word structure; 9. Grammatical structure.
