Hamgyŏng dialect


Hamgyŏng dialect

Hamgyŏng dialect (Hangul: 함경도방언; Hanja: 咸鏡道方言) is a dialect of the Korean language used in the North Hamgyŏng, South Hamgyŏng, and Ryanggang Provinces of North Korea, as well as the Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture of northeast China. It is one of the more divergent dialects of Korean, and contains intonation, vocabulary, and grammatical differences that distinguish it from the standard Korean of the north or south.

It is closely related to Koryo-mar, the dialect of Korean spoken by ethnic Koreans in the former USSR, as most of this population can trace their roots back to Hamgyŏng province.
