About Korean

Korean is mainly spoken in South Korea and North Korea, and around 80 million people speak Korean worldwide. Korean is primarily written in a system called hangeul, but previously used the Chinese hanja characters.

Linguists cannot seem to agree whether Korean is an isolated language, or if it belongs in the somewhat controversial Altaic language family.

Korean is called different things in North Korea and South Korea, based on the names of Korea being different in the two countries. In South Korea “Korean” is usually called Hangungmal (한국말) where Hanguk is the South Korean word for Korea, and mal is Korean for “speech”. In North Korea, however, the language is usually called Chosŏnmal (조선말). The English name Korea comes from Goryeo, which is the first Korean dynasty known to the western world.

Korean has several local dialects. The standard language of both South Korea and North Korea (pyojuneo or pyojunmal) is based on the area around Seoul, however, in North Korea the standard language is also influenced by the dialect of P’yŏngyang. All the Korean dialects are similar to one another except the Jeju island dialect that is different enough to sometimes be classified as a different language.
There are a few differences between North Korean and South Korean in terms of pronunciation, spelling, grammar and vocabulary. For example is the word “work” yeonyang in South Korean and ryeonryang in North Korean. And the word “apartment” is apateu in South Korean, but munhwajutaek in North Korean.
