Research Overview

“Chosen Shiryo” is categorized into three types: Korean language text books, diplomatic documents of Japan-Korea, and Japanese travelogues. I have discovered and reported on a bundle of diplomatic documents collected in Ryosokuin of Kennin-ji Temple, “Sekiindan” interpreter’s personal records about the experience in Waegwan (Japanese residence in Pusan), and “Chosengoyaku” interpreter’s Korean language text books. These all contribute to the research of the Japanese and Korean language history.
“Chosen Shiryo” consists of parallel translation in Japanese and Korean. Mainly, my analysis of these documents are conducted by analyzing the Japanese word translated in Hanguel (character sets of Korean) for learning Japanese pronunciation. By comparing the Japanese and Korean expressions, it is possible to describe the changes in grammar, pronunciation, and vocabulary of Japanese and Korean in that time period. In addition, by describing the differences of Japanese and Korean language from the medieval period to modern times, it is possible to clarify the characteristics of Japanese and Korean, as well as solve problems concerning the historical changes of both languages.
Spotlighting the bidirectional linguistic influences between both languages, I demonstrate by analysis that “Chosen Shiryo” is also useful material for research on the history of Japanese and Korean literature, and the history of diplomatic relations between Japan and Korea.
