Multilingual Dictionary of Korean Proper Nouns

The CJK Dictionary Institute is engaged in the development and continuous expansion of a comprehensive lexical database for CJK languages consisting of approximately eight million entries (see CJK Lexical Resources for details). We are no w in the process of expanding our multilingual Korean proper noun databases, samples of which appear below. For information on our Korean Lexical Database, please see korword.htm. Of particular interest is our Multilingual Dictionary of Proper Nouns, which incudes Korean.

This data was compiled based on transcription and transliteration rules (go here for details), and supports Revised Romanization of Korean, the latest standard published by the Korean government in 2000.

The Japanese is a phonemic transcription that properly reflects phonological changes resulting from patchim and liaison; the MOE transliteration refers to a strict transliteration based on the Ministry of Education romanization system.
