The Korean Language
Korean is the official language of South Korea, North Korea, and two Chinese jurisdictions (Yanbian and Changbai). The language varieties spoken in the two Koreas differ in minor matters of spelling and vocabulary. However, in general terms they both comply with the unified standards established by the Korean Language Society in 1933. When compared to other Asiatic languages, Korean grammar is similar to that of Japanese, while from a lexical point of view a lot of Korean words are Chinese in origin.
Globally, Korean is spoken by more than 75 million people: 48 million live in South Korea, 24 million in North Korea, more than 2 million in China, approximately 1 million in the United States, and about 500,000 in Japan. This makes Korean the 17th most spoken language in the world.
Korean writing system is called ‘Hangul’. Among the alphabets of the world, it is one of the youngest (it was invented in 1443 by king Sejong the Great) and also one of the most intuitive (the shapes of consonants resemble that of a speaker’s mouth when pronouncing them). Koreans like their alphabet so much that they created the Korean Alphabet Day, a national holiday celebrated on 9 October in South Korea and 15 January in North Korea. ‘Hangul’ is made up of 24 letters (14 consonants and 10 vowels). Letters are combined in order to form syllabic blocks, which are then disposed both vertically and horizontally to create words. This makes Korean alphabet deeply different from the Latin alphabet, therefore layout adjustments are often needed when translating from or into Korean.
South Korea is to be considered one of the world’s fastest growing economies, thus making Korean more and more influential in the global market. Moreover, Korean usage currently constitutes 2% of global internet use, and this makes it an extremely important language also in the digital field.
