The Korean alphabet, known as Hangul (English: HAHN-gool) in South Korea and Chosŏn'gŭl in North Korea, is the modern official writing system for the Korean language. The letters for the five basic consonants reflect the shape of the speech organs used to pronounce them, and they are systematically modified to indicate phonetic features; similarly, the vowel letters are systematically modified for related sounds, making Hangul a featural writing system. It has been described as a syllabic alphabet as it combines the features of alphabetic and syllabic writing systems, although it is not necessarily an abugida.Hangul was created in 1443 CE by King Sejong the Great in an attempt to increase literacy by serving as a complement (or alternative) to the logographic Sino-Korean Hanja, which had been used by Koreans as its primary script to write the Korean language since as early as the Gojoseon period (spanning more than a thousand years and ending around 108 BCE), along with the usage of Classical Chinese. As a result, Hangul was initially denounced and disparaged by the Korean educated class. The script became known as eonmun ("vernacular writing", 언문, 諺文) and became the primary Korean script only in the decades after Korea's independence from Japan in the mid-20th century.Modern Hangul orthography uses 24 basic letters: 14 consonant letters and 10 vowel letters. There are also 27 complex letters that are formed by combining the basic letters: 5 tense consonant letters, 11 complex consonant letters, and 11 complex vowel letters. Four basic letters in the original alphabet are no longer used: 1 vowel letter and 3 consonant letters. Korean letters are written in syllabic blocks with the alphabetic letters arranged in two dimensions. For example, the Korean word for "honeybee" (kkulbeol) is written as 꿀벌, not ㄲㅜㄹㅂㅓㄹ. The syllables begin with a consonant letter, then a vowel letter, and then potentially another consonant letter called a batchim (Korean: 받침). If the syllable begins with a vowel sound, the consonant ㅇ (ng) acts as a silent placeholder. However, when ㅇ starts a sentence or is placed after a long pause, it marks a glottal stop.
Syllables may begin with basic or tense consonants but not complex ones. The vowel can be basic or complex, and the second consonant can be basic, complex or a limited number of tense consonants. How the syllable is structured depends if the baseline of the vowel symbol is horizontal or vertical. If the baseline is vertical, the first consonant and vowel are written above the second consonant (if present), but all components are written individually from top to bottom in the case of a horizontal baseline.As in traditional Chinese and Japanese writing, as well as many other texts in East Asia, Korean texts were traditionally written top to bottom, right to left, as is occasionally still the way for stylistic purposes. However, Korean is now typically written from left to right with spaces between words serving as dividers, unlike in Japanese and Chinese. Hangul is the official writing system throughout Korea, both North and South. It is a co-official writing system in the Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture and Changbai Korean Autonomous County in Jilin Province, China. Hangul has also seen limited use in the Cia-Cia language.[出典:Wikipedia]


「웃음이 언어를 능가한다」。これは、「笑いは言葉を超える」という意味です。 人々は、相手との交流やコミュニケーションをとる時、言葉だけでなく、感情や表情、そして身振り手振りなどを使ってコミュニケーションをします。そして、そのなかで「웃음이 언어를 능가한다」の意味が現れます。 笑いは、言葉以上の力があります。例えば、「へぇ、すごい」と言われた場合には、驚きや感心の気持ちを表現することができますが、それ以上に効果的なのが、相手の行動に対する批判や軽蔑などを表現する際に使う「笑い」です。 また、笑いはコミュニケーションを円滑にするためにも重要な役割を果たします。例えば、面接や会議などでは緊張やストレスが生じることがありますが、このような場面で笑いを交えることによって緊張感やストレスを軽減することができます。 ただし、笑いは相手を傷つけたり、差別的な意味を含むものであったりする場合もありますので、注意が必要です。笑いを上手に使いこなすことができれば、相手とのコミュニケーションをスムーズに進めることができるでしょう。 最後に、「웃음이 언어를 능가한다」という言葉には、言葉以上に大きな意味が込められています。言葉だけでなく、相手とのコミュニケーションを深めるためには、笑いを取り入れ、言葉だけではなく、さまざまな表現方法を使いこなすことが大切です。
