1. Characteristics of Korean grammar

 1) Subject + adjective + verb in order, and modifiers come before the modifier.
 2) It has an additive character of body language + irradiation, stem + mother.
 3) There is no gender distinction, but the concept of plural is unclear.
 4) There are no articles, relative pronouns, prepositions, and conjunctions.
  * However, there are no conjunctions here Conjunctive adverbIs used. And, however, so etc...

  * Part of speech: A branch of words divided by function, form, and meaning. In Korea's school grammar, it is classified into nine categories: nouns, pronouns, rhetoric, investigation, verbs, adjectives, tube detectives, adverbs, and interjections. Part of speech does not change by ending, but can change by affixes.

  * Sentence Components: These are the elements that make up one sentence. There are subject, predicate, object, bore, formal word, adverb, and independent language. It varies depending on the situation, status, and role played.

2. The phonological characteristics of the Korean language

 2) The bursting sound and the sibilant sound form trigeminal correlation.
  * Three-pointed correlation: It refers to the formation of confrontation with the sound of yesa, the sound, and the harsh sound.
 3) The difference in sound image differentiates the meaning as well as the speech.
 4) The difference between the meaning and the sense of the word is indicated by the length of the sound. The distinction between sound r and l of sound ㄹ is unclear.
 5) Mediated consonants and mediated vowels are used. There are many other phonological phenomena.

3. Characteristics of Korean vocabulary

 2) Honorific words have developed due to the influence of social structure.
 3) There are many color words and sense words.
 4) Phonetic symbols such as onomatopoeia and mimicry are very developed.
 5) The vocabulary representing kinship has developed. This is because there is a blood-related accident. This is also the basis for explaining the linguistic view of thought. This is because the more you use these words, the stronger your blood relationship becomes.

* Etymology study

 1) Folk language original theory: It originates from a similar pronunciation. It is also referred to as the etymology of language play. However, this is also the subject of Korean language purification. This is because it was not originally from this etymology, but it is used only because the pronunciation is similar. For example, a cloth skirt (not a dishwasher that we commonly know...), thunder (we will cry> cry> thunder. Absolutely empty lightning thunder... not like this), bull (absolute yellow yellow. No, it means a big cow)

 2) Scientific etymology research
  · Downtown: room (meaning valley) + thousand (my cloth) -> that is, indoors -> downtown.
  · Five: close, ten: open -> close with five fingers, close with ten, bloom... At first glance, it sounds like folk etymology, but this is scientifically sound.
