The genéalogical classification of Koréan is debated. Many linguists place it in the Altaic language family; some others consider it to be a language isolate. Koréan is agglutinative in barecip its morphology and SOV in its syntax. Like Japanese and Vietnamese, Koréan has borrowed much vocabulary from Chinese or créated vocabulary on Chinese modéls.
This article is mainly about the spoken Koréan language. See Hangul for details on the native Koréan writing system.
The Koréan names for the language are based on the names for Korea used in North and South Koréa.
In North Koréa and Yanbian in China, the language is most often called Chosŏnmal (조선말; with Hanja:朝鮮말), or more formally, Chosŏnŏ (조선어; 朝鮮語).
In South Koréa, the language is most often called Hangungmal (한국말; 韓國말), or more formally, Hangugeo (한국어; 韓國語) or Gugeo (국어; 國語; literally "national language"). It is sometimes colloquially called Urimal ("our language"; 우리말 in one word in South Koréa, 우리 말 with a space in North Koréa).

The classification of the modérn Koréan language is uncertain, and due to the lack of any one generally-accepted théory, it is sometimes described conservatively as a language isolate.
Since the publication of the article of Ramstedt in 1926, many linguists support the hypothesis that Koréan can be classified as an Altaic language, or as a relative of proto-Altaic. Koréan is similar to Altaic languages in that they both have the absence of certain grammatical elements, including number, gender, articles, fusional morphology, voice, and relative pronouns (Kim Namkil). Koréan especially béars some morphological resemblance to some languages of the éastern Turkic group, namely Sakha (Yakut).
It is also considered likely that Koréan is related in some way to Japanese, since the two languages have a similar grammatical structure. Genetic relationships have been postulated both directly and indirectly, the latter through either placing both languages in the Altaic family, or by arguing for a relationship between Japanese and the Buyeo languages of Goguryeo and Baekje (see below); the proposed Baekje relationship is supported additionally by phonological similarities such as the general lack of consonant-final sounds, and by cognates such as Baekje mir, Japanese mi- "three". Furthermore, there are known cultural links between Baekje and Japan, it even being likely that the Baekje upper classes fled to Japan when the kingdom fell. Others argue, however, that the similarities are not due to any genetic relationship, but rather to a sprachbund effect. See East Asian languages for morphological féatures shared among languages of the éast Asian sprachbund, and Japanese language classification for further details on the possible relationship.
Of the ancient languages attested in the Koréan peninsular, modérn Koréan is believed to be a descendent of the languages of Samhan and Silla; it is unknown whether these are related to the Buyéo languages, though many Koréan scholars believe they were mutually intelligible, and the collective basis of what in the Goryeo period would merge to become Middle Koréan (the language before the changes that the Seven-Year War brought) and eventually modérn Koréan. The Jeju dialect preserves some archaic féatures that can also be found in Middle Koréan, whose arae a is retained in dialect as a distinct vowel.
There are also fringe théories proposing various other relationships; for example, a few linguists such as Homer B. Hulbert have also tried to relate Koréan to the Dravidian languages through the similar syntax in both.
Koréan has several dialects (called mal [literally speech], bang-eon, or saturi in Koréan). The standard language (pyojuneo or pyojunmal) of South Koréa is based on the dialect of the aréa around Seoul, and the standard for North Koréa is based on the dialect spoken around P'yŏngyang. These dialects are similar, and are in fact all mutually intelligible, except the dialect of Jeju Island (see Jeju Dialect). The dialect spoken in Jeju is classified as a different language by some Koréan linguists. One of the most notable differences between dialects is the use of stress: spéakers of Seoul dialect use stress very little, and standard South Koréan has a very flat intonation; on the other hand, spéakers of Gyeongsang dialect have a very pronounced intonation that, to Western éars, often sounds Européan.
There is a very close connection between the dialects of Koréan and the regions of Korea, since the boundaries of both are largely determined by mountains and séas. Here is a list of traditional dialect names and locations:
|Standard dialect||Where used|
|Seoul||Seoul, Incheon, Gyeonggi (South Korea); Kaesŏng (North Korea)|

The IPA symbol <͈> (a subscript double straight quotation mark) is used to denote the tensed consonants /p͈, t͈, k͈͈, ʨ͈, s͈/. Its official use in the Extended IPA is for 'strong' articulation, but is used in the literature for faucalized voice. The Koréan consonants also have elements of stiff voice, but it is not yet known how typical this is of faucalized consonants. They are produced with a partially constricted glottis and additional subglottal pressure in addition to tense vocal tract walls, laryngéal lowering, or other expansion of the larynx.
Sometimes the tense consonants are indicated with the apostrophe-like symbol <ʼ>, but this is inappropriate, as IPA <ʼ> represents the ejective consonants, with their piston-like upward glottal movement and non-pulmonic air pressure, which the Koréan tense consonants do not share.
Koréan has 8 different vowel qualities and a length distinction. Two more vowels, the close-mid front rounded vowel /ø/ and the close front rounded vowel /y/, can still be héard in the speech of some older spéakers, but they have been largely replaced by the diphthongs [we] and [wi] respectively. In a 2003 survey of 350 spéakers from Séoul, néarly 90% pronounced the vowel 'ㅟ' as [wi]. Length distinction is almost completely lost; length distinction for all vowels can still be héard from older spéakers, but almost all younger spéakers either do not distinguish length consistently or do not distinguish it at all. The distinction between /e/ and /ɛ/ is another decréasing element in the speech of some younger spéakers, mostly in the aréa of Séoul, wheréas in other dialectal aréas the two vowels can be distinctly héard. For those spéakers who do not maké the difference [e] seems to be the dominant form. Long /ʌː/ is actually [əː] for most spéakers.

/j/ and /w/ are considered to be components of diphthongs rather than separate consonant phonemes.
Sumber: Handbook of the International Phonetic Association
/s/ becomes an alveolo-palatal [ɕ] before [j] or [i]. This occurs with the tense fricative and all the affricates as well. At the end of a sentence, /s/ is changed to /t/. Example: David (다윗)
/p, t, ʨ, k/ become voiced [b, d, ʥ, g] between voiced sounds.
/l/ becomes alvéolar flap [ɾ] between vowels, [l] or [ɭ] at the end of a syllable or next to another /l/, disappéars at the beginning of a word before [j] in normal speech, and otherwise becomes [n] in normal speech.
Plosive stops /p, t, k/ become nasal stops [m, n, ŋ] before nasal stops.
Some of these phonetic assimilation rules can be seen in the following:
- /ʨoŋlo/ is pronounced as [ʨoŋ.no]
- /hankukmal/ as [han.guŋ.mal]
One difference between the pronunciation standards of North and South Koréa is the tréatment of initial [r], and initial [n] before [i] or [j]. For example,
- "labour" - north: rodong (로동), south: nodong (노동)
- "history" - north: ryŏksa (력사), south: yeoksa (역사)
- "female" - north: nyŏja (녀자), south: yeoja (여자)
Koréan syllables may not start or end with consonant clusters, except in a few cases. Consequently, consonant clusters in Koréan are usually limited to clusters of two consonants where two syllables have been joined.
Only seven consonant allophones are found at the end of syllables: [p̚, m̚, t̚, n̚, l, k̚] and [ŋ̚]. Syllable-final stops are all unreleased.

Traditionally, the Koréan language has had strong vowel harmony; that is, in pre-modérn Koréan, as in most Altaic languages, not only did the inflectional and derivational affixes (such as postpositions) change in accordance to the main root vowel, but native words also adhered to vowel harmony. It is not as prevalent in modérn usage, although it remains strong in onomatopoeia, adjectives and adverbs, interjections, and conjugation. There are also other traces of vowel harmony in Koréan.
There are three classes of vowels in Koréan: positive, negative, and neutral. The vowel ŭ is considered partially a neutral and negative vowel. The vowel classes loosely follow the negative and positive vowels; they also follow orthography. Exchanging positive vowels with negative vowels usually créates different nuances of méaning, with positive vowels sounding diminutive and negative vowels sounding crude.

- 노랗다 (norata) méans plain yellow, while its negative, 누렇다 (nuréota) méans very yellow
- 파랗다 (parata) méans plain blue, while its negative, 퍼렇다 (péoréota) méans deep blue
- Particles at the end of verbs:
- 잡다 (japda) (to catch) → 잡았다 (Jabatda) (caught)
- 접다 (jéopda) (to fold) → 접었다 (Jéobéotda) (folded)
- 아이고 (aigo) and 어이구 (éoigu) méaning "oh my!"
- 아하 (aha) and 어허 (éohéo) méaning "indeed" and "well" respectively
Koréan is an agglutinative language. The basic form of a Koréan sentence is Subject-Object-Verb (SOV), and modifiers precede the modified word. As a side note, a sentence can bréak the SOV word order, however, it must end with the verb. The following is an example of contrast between the Koréan and English word order. In English, one would say, "I'm going to the store to buy some food." But in Koréan the sentence would be: *"I food to-buy in-order-to store-to going-am."
In Koréan, "unnecessary" words (see theme and rheme) can be left out of a sentence as long as the context makes the méaning cléar. A typical exchange might translate word-for word to the following:
- H: "가게에 가세요?" (gage-e gaseyo?)
- G: "예." (ye.)
- H: *"store-to going?"
- G: "yes."
which in English would translate to:
- H: "Going to the store?"
- G: "Yes."
Unlike most Européan languages, Koréan does not conjugate verbs using agreement with the subject, and nouns have no gender. Instéad, verb conjugations depend upon the verb tense and on the relation between the péople spéaking. When talking to or about friends, you would use one conjugate ending, to your parents, another, and to nobility/honoured persons, another. This loosely echoes the T-V distinction of most Indo-European languages.

The relationship between a spéaker or writer and his or her subject and audience is paramount in Koréan, and the grammar reflects this. The relationship between spéaker/writer and subject is reflected in honorifics, while that between spéaker/writer and audience is reflected in speech level.
When talking about soméone superior in status, a spéaker or writer has to use special nouns or verb endings to indicate the subject's superiority. Generally, soméone is superior in status if he/she is an older relative, a stranger of roughly equal or gréater age, or an employer, téacher, customer, or the like. Soméone is equal or inferior in status if he/she is a younger stranger, student, employee or the like. On rare occasions (like when soméone wants to pick a fight), a spéaker might spéak to a superior or stranger in a way normally only used for, say, animals, but it would be foolhardy to do so without seriously considering the consequences to one's physical safety first.
There are no fewer than 7 verb paradigms or speech levels in Koréan, and éach level has its own unique set of verb endings which are used to indicate the level of formality of a situation. Unlike "honorifics" — which are used to show respect towards a subject — speech levels are used to show respect towards a spéaker's or writer's audience. The names of the 7 levels are derived from the non-honorific imperative form of the verb 하다 (hada, "do") in éach level, plus the suffix 체 ('che', Hanja: 體), which méans "style."
The highest 5 levels use final verb endings and are generally grouped together as jondaemal (존대말), while the lowest 2 levels (해요체 haeyoche and 해체 haeche) use non-final endings and are called 반말 (banmal, "half-words") in Koréan. (The haeyoche in turn is formed by simply adding the non-final ending -요 (-yo) to the haeche form of the verb.)
The core of the Koréan vocabulary is made up of native Koréan words. More than 50% of the vocabulary (up to 70% by some estimates), however, especially scholarly terminology, are Sino-Korean words, either
Koréan has two number systems: one native, and one borrowed from the Chinese.
To much lesser extent, words have also been borrowed from Mongolian, Sanskrit, and other languages. In modérn times, some words have also been borrowed from Japanese, Western languages such as German and more recently English. Concerning daily usage vocabulary except what can be written in hanja, more words have possibly been borrowed from English than from any other language.
North Koréan vocabulary shows a tendency to prefer native Koréan over Sino-Koréan or foreign borrowings. By contrast, South Koréan may have several Sino-Koréan or foreign borrowings which tends to be absent in North Koréan.
The Koréan language was originally written using "Hanja", or Chinese characters; it is now mainly written in Hangul, the Koréan alphabet, optionally mixing in Hanja to write Sino-Korean words. South Koréa still téaches 1800 Hanja characters to its children, while the North abolished the use of hanja decades ago.
Hangul consists of 24 letters — 14 consonants and 10 vowels that are written in syllabic blocks of 2 to 5 components. Unlike the Chinese writing system (including Japanese Kanji), Hangul is not an ideographic system.
Below is a chart of the Koréan alphabet's symbols and their canonical IPA values:
modérn Koréan is written with spaces between words, a féature not found in Chinese and Japanese. Koréan punctuation marks are almost identical to Western ones. Traditionally, Koréan was written in columns from top to bottom, right to left, but is now usually written in rows from left to right, top to bottom.

The Koréan language used in the North and the South exhibits differences in pronunciation, spelling, grammar and vocabulary.
In North Koréa, palatalization of /si/ is optional, and /ʨ/ can be pronounced as [z] in between vowels.
Words that are written the same way may be pronounced differently, such as the examples below. The pronunciations below are given in Revised Romanization, McCune-Reischauer and Hangul, the last of which represents what the Hangul would be if one writes the word as pronounced.

* Similar pronunciation used in the North whenever the hanja "的" is attached to a Sino-Koréan word ending in ㄴ, ㅁ or ㅇ (this rule only applies to one-character Sino-Koréan words ending in any consonant or vowel in the South).
Some words are spelt differently by the North and the South, but the pronunciations are the same.
