Book Cover
The Handbook of Korean Linguistics

The Handbook of Korean Linguistics presents state-of-the-art overviews of linguistic research into the Korean language. The volume is divided into six sections: The Sounds of Korean, Korean Morphology and Syntax, the Syntax-Semantics Interface, Discourse and Pragmatics, Language Acquisition, and Varieties of Korean. The editors have brought together contributions from a wide range of international authors, allowing for a variety of theoretical viewpoints as well as coverage of topics such as proto-Korean, present-day language policies in North and South Korea, social aspects of Korean as a heritage language, honorifics, and an in-depth study of syntactic phenomena of the language. The first authoritative reference work of its kind in the field, this Handbook is certain to become a key resource for researchers, graduate students, and advanced undergraduates studying Korean linguistics or linguistic typology.
