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]


」は、韓国語の音節で使われる文字であり、母音「え」の音を表すために使用されます。この文字は、日本語ではあまり用いられませんが、韓国語にはとても重要な役割を果たしています。 韓国語には、日本語とは異なる音の発音があります。そのため、日本人が初めて韓国語を学ぶときには、この母音「え」の音を発音するのが難しいと感じる場合があります。しかし、日本語には「ん」という文字がありますが、韓国語には「ん」の音を表す文字がありません。そのため、韓国人が日本語を話すときには「ん」という音を発音するのが難しいと感じる場合があります。 さらに、韓国語には「ㅇ」という文字があります。この文字は、母音の前に置かれると発音されず、次の文字の発音を補助する役割を担います。例えば、「ㅇ」の前に「ㅏ」を置くと「あ」と発音されます。しかし、この文字自体は音が発生しないため、日本人にはなじみがなく、難しいと感じる場合があります。 韓国語を正しく発音するためには、母音「え」の音を表す「」を積極的に使うことが重要です。これは、韓国語の基礎的な発音を身につけるために欠かせない要素です。韓国語は日本語とは異なる言語であるため、初めて学ぶときには慣れるまで時間がかかるかもしれません。しかし、正しく学ぶことで、韓国語を流暢に話すことができるようになります。 最近では、日韓間での交流やビジネスが活発化しています。このため、韓国語を習得することは、将来的に有利になる可能性があることも考えられます。母音「え」の音を表す「」が表す韓国語の発音は、初心者にとって難しいものかもしれませんが、熱心に学習すれば、韓国語を正しく話すことができるようになるでしょう。
