Theoretical Issues in Korean Linguistics Reviews


'This volume gathers together perhaps the broadest collection of papers ever published on the general theme of Korean linguistics. The papers in each area give a flavour of sophistication and intensity of current research on Korean. We have perhaps become unaccustomed to regarding a language area as a unified subfield within linguistics; however, the range of problems presented by Korean data and the disposition of linguists working on the language from around the world combine to maintain a tradition of empirical breadth and theoretical relevance.' Ho-min Sohn, Chair, Dept. of East Asian Languages and Literatures, University of Hawaii
