ABSTRACT

Historically, there have been many attempts at Romanization to express the sounds of Korean character ‘Hangul’. Especially, in case of Romanization of the Hangul's fortis, people have used 'double marking' to repeat alphabetic characters that correspond to consonants. In order to express hard sounds that are difficult to express by alphabet alone, this study studies methods that can be used by adding specific symbols from a design perspective. The study cases were conducted based on the symbols of the diabetic acute( ´ ), grave( ` ), caron( ˇ ), handakuten( ゚) of the Japanese character "Kana" and staccato( ˙ ) of the musical instrument. As a result of the study, the 5th case( ゚) was preferred below the average, except for the results of 30 foreigners. In addition, the differences not only between ‘acute’ and ‘grave’ and but also between ‘caron’ and ‘staccato’ were meaningless as a result of T test. It can be inferred that this is because, in accordance with the subjective opinion of the experimenter, the role was recognised as a similar symbol. In conclusion, it was confirmed that if certain symbols were used in the alphabet, people could be used positively to spell a fortis in Korean alphabet.
