Apperantly the North Koran institute of language has promised to work until 100% of Korean language in NK is 100% compromised of native Korean roots

Meanwhile South Korea keeps getting more and more loanwords

In 100 years from now will they be totally different languages?

    North Korean will stay 100% Korean, and South Korean will become completely mongrelized by English.

    They might be if the North Korean government actually accomplished that, but it seems like a ridiculous goal. The “native Korean” versions for many of those sino-Korean words simply don’t exist so they’d need to make them up. The pre-sinicization Koreans couldn’t have words for things which they didn’t have concepts for. Also the more modern foreign loanwords in South Korea are describing foreign things like iPhones and hamburgers, not replacing words that Koreans already have, and are only increasing due to the availability of global consumer products, so the North Koreans might avoid a lot of that but would also need to come up with their own word for hamburger.

    On the topic of what defines a language, it seems rather subjective. Mandarin and Cantonese would be more different, but they’re often considered different dialects of the same language. Serbian and Croatian would be more similar, but are considered different languages. I’m guessing the Koreans would regard them as different dialects because they are both Korea

      Uh yeah?

      They already use different languages (kind of).
      They both use their regional dialect which can be hard to understand, as said if Croatian and Serbian are considered different languages then korean "dialects" are 100% different languages

      both examples are political. mandarin and yue ARE different languages, while serbian and croatian (both of them abstractions over a shitload of dialects, croatian more so) are really dialects of the same language. during communism in Hungary, in the absence of any kind of sensitivity to this kind of thing, the state maintained unified 'serbocroat language' schools for both minorities.

      Not by any actual linguist who isn't cowed by nationalistic precepts.

    North Koreans are investing in isolating themselves from the world yet in the same breath complaining they don’t get enough aid from the world. Let them be the hermit kingdom. Frick em.

    I think you would need more than 100 years. I can understand English speakers from 100 years ago. But maybe like 600 years, I can barely understand English from that time.

      this, foreign loanwords are the least of SK's problems, they're literally in the process of getting zogged demographically. In a 100 years norks will atleast still be ethnically Korean

    So that means they won't be able to count past the number 100?

      No that means they will either use old preserved words (like Icelandic which has revived Norse words) or make up new terms for them
      >Will people accept changing the fricking numbers?
      Sure, see South slavs with hiljada and tisuća

    This is looking more like the Anglish movement seeking to rid English of it's Graeco-Roman linguistic heritage. Similar to modern Turkish compared to Ottoman Turkish. The result could mean a greater disassociation from the shared Sinitic heritage of the Far East which is ironic considering it was the Chinese who helped them during the war and continue to as well.

    Where language purification may have served some useful purpose is in the case of Hindi with regards to providing more adequate terminology for discussions on religions of dharmic tradition but otherwise the Persianized Urdu register is the more historically authentic variety.

    North Koreans are right though IMO about being better off going with diacritics for their romanization rather than with digraphs. The revised romanization does nothing to help non-Korean speakers better approximate the pronunciation of Korean words or help Koreans understand them better anyway. If various western languages like Dutch, Welsh, and Latvian employ diacritics there's no good reason why Korean romanization shouldn't employ it either.

    I find it hard to believe they'll replace even all the Sino-Korean words, they're such an important part of the language.

    Koreans have Pajeet/Taglish-tier English loanwords at this point thanks to globalization and hiphop culture. It won't be long til they have a cringe upper class speaking Korenglish or something.

    Based North Korean moment. We need to re-Anglo size English. There's far too much French and Latin influence in our language. Would love to learn Old English, but alas Duolingo doesn't have a course on it.

      Anglish is already a thing. People just need to make it a language with native speakers now. We need a schizo billionarie that will round up thousands of hobos send them to an abandoned mine city and make them and their children learn Anglish to make an Anglish city
