Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."

Title: Kyeng-Min-Phyen
Translated By: Seog-Min Youn
Seung-Seop Ryu
Myon-Chu Kwon
Description:

This book makes an analysis on two original texts in company with the
contemporary Korean equivalent for them. The first one is 'Kyeng-Min-Phyen
(警民編)', which was written in classical Chinese. The second one is 'the
Middle Korean translation of the Kyeng-Min-Phyen'. Both texts are
xylographic books. The author of the Kyeng-Min-Phyen was a governor of
Hwanghay Province in the Joseon Dynasty. In 1519, he wrote the
Kyeng-Min-Phyen in order to exercise strict control over his local
residents. The Kyeng-Min-Phyen suggests not only items of moral rules but
also clauses of punishment for violation of those rules. The Middle Korean
translation of the Kyeng-Min-Phyen, which this book adopts as the original
text, was printed in 1658.

This book provides historical linguists with a research material for
studies of the Middle Korean language in the Joseon Dynasty.
