Who speaks Korean?
Worldwide, the number of users of this language may be determined at about 77 million. Korean is an isolated language and does not belong to any language family. The vast majority of the users of the Korean language live on the Korean Peninsula. In addition, people using Korean will also be found in Yanbian, an autonomous prefecture in the east of Jilin Province, China, in the Republics of the former Soviet Union, the United States, Canada, Brazil and Japan.
History of the Korean language
Korean originates from the Middle Korean language, which in turn is the descendant of the Old Korean language based on the language used in the Prehistoric Korea. The origin of this last language is still disputed, but its roots are looked for in the area of Manchuria, a land located in the northern part of China. Chinese characters appeared in Korea around the 1st century BC. The alphabet was adjusted to the Korean language, became known as hanja and was used to write Korean for more than one thousand years. Currently, hanja is no longer used in everyday life because of inconveniences it creates. However, it is still important in historical and linguistic research. Neither South Korea nor North Korea objects to teaching hanja, although it is no longer a language officially used in North Korea, and its use in South Korea is reserved for special circumstances. Most words commonly used in Korean are of Korean origin, but more than 50% of the general vocabulary have sources in the Korean way of reading Chinese characters. Korean is a type of the SOV language (Subject Object Verb – a language using a type of sentence in which the subject is present before the object and the verb occurs at the end).
Use of the Korean language in business
