Book Information

   

Title: The Korean Language
Written By: Ho-Min Sohn
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521369436
Series Title: Cambridge Language Surveys
Description:

This book provides a detailed survey of the Korean language, covering its speakers, genetic affiliation, historical development, dialects, lexicon, writing systems, sound patterns, word structure, and grammatical structure. It is designed to be accessible to a wide readership, and provides a wealth of data in a user-friendly format that does not presuppose an in-depth knowledge of the latest linguistic theories. It will be used by general linguists and Korean linguists who are interested in the typological characteristics of the language from both synchronic and diachronic perspectives, and by undergraduates and graduate students in those disciplines who seek a comprehensive introduction to the linguistics of Korean. Likewise, advanced students of the Korean language and language educators will find it offers valuable insights into lexical, phonological, morphological and syntactic aspects of the language for their purposes. "it is an indispensable resource for anyone with a serious interest in the Korean language." Canadian Journal of Linguistics
