A guide to the Korean Language and Korean Translations

Korean Language and Korean Translations

Facts about the Korean Language

Korean is the official language of both the Republic of Korea (South Korea) and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea), which have a total combined population of around 73 million (50 million in the South and 23 million in the North). Korean is also spoken in large ethnic Korean communities in China, Japan, the US and Central Asia as well as in other communities around the world.

Korean appears to be linked to the Uralo-Altaic group of languages which include Mongolian, Manchu, Hungarian, Turkish and Finnish, although there is no clear evidence of this. Some think it is an isolated language.

The Korean language has five major dialects in South Korea and one in North Korea. Despite the geographical and socio-political dialect differences, Korean is relatively homogeneous, being mutually understandable among speakers from different areas. In Korean there are no definite or indefinite articles, gender distinctions or grammatical number. There are also seven speech levels, each level with its own set of verb endings used to indicate the level of formality in a situation.

An interesting fact about Korean is that it contains a high concentration of words borrowed from English including basic vocabulary, however, English words in Korea must be approached with caution since the meaning may be altogether different from their actual English meaning.
