ABSTRACT

Cho, Sung-moon. 2002. A Study of the Younger Generation’s Recognition of the Regulations on Korean Language. The Sociolinguistic Journal of Korea, 10(1). This paper examines how the younger generation recognize and observe the Regulations on Korean Language. These days, the general use of internet and the misleading usage of the language in mass communication seem to negatively affect the language use among younger generation in many ways. Because the influence on language use through the internet or the mass communication can be so strong, it may not be too much to say that it not only distorts the standard usage of the language but also leads our language towards the undesirable direction in a short period of time. Accordingly, this paper investigates such negative surroundings and also tries to reveal how it affects the language use of young generations. There may be various fields which can be included in the investigation, but this paper restricts its scope to Korean Regulations only, which include Korean Orthography, Norms on Standard Korean, Norms on the writing system of foreign words, and Norms on Korean Romanization.
