An accessible, comprehensive source of information on the Korean language--its structure and history to its cultural and sociological setting.This book describes the structure and history of the Korean language, ranging from its cultural and sociological setting, writing system, and modern dialects, to how Koreans themselves view their language and its role in society. An accessible, comprehensive source of information on the Korean language, Lee and Ramsey's work is an important resource for all those interested in Korean history and culture, offering information not readily available elsewhere in the English-language literature."This is an important topic. Not only is an understanding of all the intricacies of the Korean language important to an accurate understanding of Korean culture, knowledge of the Korean language is also important to linguists who otherwise might not be interested in East Asian cultures because Korean, both in its written and spoken forms, has several unique features which this book identifies, describes, and explains. I particularly like the fact that the data is presented in the Korean alphabet as well as in romanization. Comprehensible and comprehensive, this is the best book in English on this subject."-- Don Baker, University of British Columbia
