ABSTRACT

This study aimed to describe features of language nationalism(語文民族主義) of Ju Si-gyeong(周時經, 1876-1914) and Choi Hyeon-bae(崔鉉培, 1894-1970), focusing on the language standardization. To achieve the aim, we examined their assertions on language nationalism and Korean standardization in their articles and books, and made clear points of sameness and difference between Ju and Choi through comparing the former with the latter. As a result, we could find out, as follows : in the early 20th century in Korea, Ju Si-gyeong and Choi Hyeon-bae exalted the superiority of Korean language and writing system, and insisted on its standardization for Korean Modernization. But Choi Hyeon-bae disagreed with Ju Si-gyeong in the selection criterion of standard language. While Ju Si-gyeong on regularity of allomorph alternation patterns, Choi Hyeon-bae valued on commonness to use. We argued that this disagreement was due to the difference of their linguistic view.
