More Information on the Korean Language

The Korean language is the official language of both North and South Korea. Worldwide there are around 78 million Korean speakers, including large groups in the former Soviet Union, China, Australia, the United States, Canada, Brazil, Japan, and more recently the Philippines.

The core of the Korean vocabulary is made up of native Korean words. More than 50% of the vocabulary, however, especially scholarly terminology are Sino-Korean words, which are either directly borrowed from Chinese written language, or coined in Korea using Chinese characters, or borrowed from the Japanese language where they had been coined using Chinese characters.

To a much lesser extent, words have also been borrowed from Mongolian, Sanskrit, and other languages. In modern times, some words have also been borrowed from Japanese, Western languages such as German and more recently, English.

North Korean vocabulary has a tendency to emphasize the use of native Korean rather than Sino-Korean and foreign borrowings.

The Korean language was originally written using Hanja, or Chinese characters; it is now mainly written in Hangul, the Korean alphabet.
