Language Facts About Korean

Korean is a rich and vibrant East Asian language with a fascinating hisotry that spans thousands of years. Spoken by over 77 million people worldwide, Korean is the official language of both South and North Korea and the regional language in China, Japan, the United States, and Germany, etc.

Origins and Evolution of the Korean Language

Korean can find its roots in Gojoseon, the first kingdom in the Korean Peninsula that was established thousands of years ago in 2333 BCE. As an important part of the Koreanic language family, Korean shares distant ties with the Mongolic and Tungusic languages.

The exact origin of Korean remains controversial but it is generally believed that Korean has derived from the Altaic language family, which encompasses Turkic, Tungusic, Mongolic, and sometimes Japanese and Korean.

Influenced by the neighboring Chinese language and culture, Korean has undergone various transformations over time, resulting in a plethora of loanwords and the adoption of the Chinese scripts (Hanja) till early 20th century. 

In the 15th century, King Sejong the Great of Joseon introduced Hangul, the Korean alphabet for the Korean writing system as a way to improve literacy and strengthen his rule. Hangul has been more widely accepted and used than the complicated Chinese scripts over time.

The Koreans stopped using Chinese characters in official documents and settings in the 1970s, but Chinese scripts can still be found in historical and cultural documentations.    

Korean Writing System

korean to english translation 1

The Korean language didn’t have its own writing system for a long time.  It wasn’t until 1443 when Sejong the Great invented the ingenious alphabet Hangul that the Korean language started to have its own characters. 

Consisting of 10 basic vowels and 14 basic consonants that are combined to form syllabic blocks, Hangul was intentionally created to be simple, logical, and accessible to the populace. The combination of these consonants and vowels helps create a broad range of syllables, making Hangul a highly efficient writing system. 

Hangul represents the Korean phonetic structure with each character corresponds to a specific sound, allowing for easier and more accurate pronunciation of Korean words.  

This is why Hangul is a remarkable asset to Koreans is that it has revolutionized literacy in Korea, enabling a larger population to master the written language and hence promoting education, cultural preservation, and knowledge dissemination in the Korean Penisula. 

Today, Hangul is key to type Korean on an English keyboard. How? Mastering the consonants and vowels is a good start.

ㅏ ㅑ ㅓ ㅕ ㅗ ㅛ ㅜ ㅠ ㅡ ㅣ

Politeness and Honorifics in Korean

Respect and hierarchy are highly valued in Korean society. This can be reflected in the Korean language’s honorific system in which the usage of different verb forms and vocabulary vary with the social status and relationship between speakers, adding politeness to the communication. Some of the most common honorifics in Korean are:

  • 씨 (ssi) (most common honorific suffix for addressing individuals of equal/slightly lower social status than the speaker)
  • 님 (nim) (formal honorific suffix for addressing individuals of higher social status than the speaker)
  • 군 (gun) (less common masculine honorific suffix for addressing young men)
  • 양 (yang) (less common feminine honorific suffix for addressing  young women)
  • 선배 (sunbae) (term used to address individuals who are older/more experienced than you)
  • 후배 (hubae) (term used to address individuals who are younger/less experienced than you)

A8: When you need to get a general idea of a foreign text/passage and accuracy doesn’t matter to you, translation APPs can be an ideal tool. Some of the best APPs for English Korean translation include Google Translate, Microsoft Translator, and iTranslate. These apps come with amazing features such as text translation, voice translation, and dictionary lookup. However, the accuracy is questionable and could vary with different subject matters. It’s recommended to try different apps and choose the one that best suits your specific translation needs. But think twice before using such APPs to translate important/highly technical documents.

A9: While Google Translate can generate translation from English to Korean instantly and provide a basic understanding, you need to bear in mind that the results may not always be accurate or contextually appropriate. Google Translate, or any machine translation tool in the matter, is ideal for translating simple phrases or getting a general idea. But when aiming for professional and accurate translations, it’s best to avoid using these machine-powered tools and work with experienced human translators who can understand the linguistic and cultural nuances between both languages and provide high-quality translations with a tailored personal touch.
