Kim, Sang-Joon. 2003. A Study on the Stylistic Characteristics of Broadcasting News of South and North Korea. The Sociolinguistic Journal of Korea, 11(1). The summit between South and North Korea in June 15, 2000 was an epoch-making event in the historical relationship of South and North Korea. One of the most remarkable things in the broadcastings related to the summit conference was the language use of North Korea, i.e., linguistic expressions and stylistic characteristics in the broadcasting. The broadcasting of North Korea follows a thorough principle, i.e., deification of the absolute monarch, and uses deific metaphors. This research compares and investigates stylistic characteristics in South and North Korea broadcasting examining the broadcasting contents during the summit. The foci of this research lie in the style of language, especially the use of modifiers and metaphors in the broadcasting of South and North Korea.Remarkable results were found in the comparison of the stylistic characteristics of report-broadcastings in South and North Korea. Investigating changes in stylistic characteristics, I find the change from a literary to colloquial style, and from subjective to objective expressions in South Korea, while no major changes were observed in North Korea.
