- The Lexical Standardization of Korean is an effort to purify Korean in the encircling zone of Chinese. It is necessary because Korean in China has been affected by the Chinese through these last decades.
Since the 1945 liberation of Korea, the Korean-Chinese have made a constant effort to keep and use their proud mother-tongue. The most important thing for them lay not in choosing standard Korean between the two dialects in Korea (which can be largely divided into the North and the South dialect) but in emphasizing the homogeneous natures of the two and eliminating the heterogeneous elements in Korean. Some problems arose during the process of standardization.
