A Korean-English dictionary by Samuel E Martin( Book )

28 editions published between 1967 and 1980 in 4 languages and held by 660 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the purpose of this dictionary is to "give a full and accurate portrayal of the basic native korean vocabulary," some of the common and useful chinese and european loanwords have been included as well. The authors (samuel E. martin, yang ha lee, and sung-un chang) have followed the hankul spelling conventions of the "unified system" and the yale romanization system, which here includes "all relevant morphophonemic information included in either of the two spelling systems in use in north and south korea." A discussion of alphabets and conventions used, and pronunciation rules for the romanization and hankul spellings precede the entries. Each entry is listed under the hankul spelling and includes the romanized form, an indication of the form class, an english gloss, and several examples of the entry as used in context. Special attention is paid to problems of etymology, pronunciation, and dialect variation. Chinese characters are given for words of chinese origin, and a list of all common chinese bound nouns begins each homophone group. Published as part of the yale linguistic series, this dictionary comprises 1,902 pages and is available for $35.00 from the yale university press, 149 york street, new haven, connecticut 06511. (jd)
