- In this study, I have seen various aspects resulted from spoken language problems and have finally tried to disclose how universality of Sino-centrism and specificity of Chosŏn had been combined and had cracked. The contemporary intelligent at the time happened to expand their vision through which they could see the system of Chinese writings relatively by attaching voice to signal system of Chinese characters, which made themselves understand peculiarity of Chosŏn"s unique spoken language therewidth. In addition, it pushed forth their further recognition to problems of the unity of the written and spoken language and compilation of books of connotation and notes translated and explained in details. Besides, they have found transition toward the spoken language in literary style and new interest in Chosŏn’s spoken expression. This shows how and in what way the medieval universality of Chinese writing system had been cracked and transformed by the peculiarity of voice. Increase in interest in the spoken language cracked soundless signal system of the Chinese writing system and expanded such expressions as were based upon Chosŏn’s own unique spoken language, which played an important role in advancing into their community with the same spoken language.
