- The present study is an attempt to provide a rough profile of linguistic consciousness, as reflected in the day-to-day use of present-day Korean. The underlying assumption throughout is that the drastic socio-political changes in post-Liberation Korea must have left strong imprints in the popular Korean psyche and that there must be linguistic reflexes for these imprints, The present study does indeed come up with an interesting assortment of linguistic changes attributable to such socio-political changes as φ the coming of democracy and the nuclear family and (Z) an ever increasing encounter with other dialects and languages. As such, the present study can serve as a basis for a systematic formulation of language policy or for a principled purificationof Korean.
A 50-item questionnaire is used for the present study. The 784 respondents range from middle-school students to college graduates and represent both sexes and most of the major dialects of Korean.
