ABSTRACT

The goal of this thesis is to make a comparative study about the variant form of the Chinese character in the five sorts of old maps drawing outside of the main gates of old map including DeDongYei-jido. The main task of this thesis can be classified under three heads - ①introducing the literature of comparative study in the five sorts of old maps including DeDongYei-jido, ②classification of variant form in the five sorts of old maps, ③characteristic of variant form in the five sorts of old maps. In this thesis, aspect of variant form is classified under six head - ①variation of the whole shape of the character, ②taking place the variation in both sides of Chinese character, ③ taking place the variation in part, ④taking place variation in the strokes of the Chinese character, ⑤misusing different characters, ⑥changing different characters. This thesis explains some characteristic of variant form - ①simplification of the shape of characters, ②using the Hou-qi-zi(後起字, Chinese character which is actually the same but made the next), ③replacing the overlapped both sides of Chinese character with omit mark, ④a wrongly written character, ⑤discovering the variant form such as variant form of 廣, 广 variant form of 廛, variant form of 院 which was not recorded in Chinese literature. From now on, there should be some collections of variant form of Korean style and study. we are going to have to standardize aspect of variation and rule of variant form in old maps until we have to make some ways to recognize the block letter.
