"This is the first-in-depth study of the extinct Koguryo language, which was once spoken in Manchuria and northern Korea. It covers the ethnolinguistic history of the Koguryo nation, philological treatment of the sources for the language, Koguryo phonology, and a complete glossary of all Archaic Koguryo and Old Koguryo words. Special attention has been given to the theory and practice of lexically - based historical-comparative linguistics. The genetic relationship of Koguryo of Japanese is shown to be secure, unlike the non-relationship of either language to Korean or 'Altaic', and much light is shed on the ethnolinguistic origins of Japanese. The special phonological features of the underlying transcriptional language, the archaic northeastern Middle Chinese dialect once spoken in Korea, are also analyzed."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
