NAME ^

Encode::Korean - Perl extension for Encodings of Korean Language

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Encode::Korean;

  while($line = <>) {
    print encode 'utf8', decode $enc, $line;
  }

AKNOWLEDGEMENT ^

Thanks to Otakar Smrz, who wrote Encode::Arabic module, which inspired me with the 'philosophy' of Encode::Encoding module and the idea of mode system.

DESCRIPTION ^

This module is a wrapper for Korean encoding modules.

ENCODINGS BASED ON TRANSLITERATION

NOTE or WARNING

The provided transliteration is NOT a public romanization nor phonemic transcription, BUT a scientific romanization or letter-to-letter transliteration. It DOES NOT take into account morphophonemic changes nor natural pronunciations, BUT DOES reflect closely the original hangul orthography and make the reverse transliteration possible.

If you're looking for a general romanizer (that does 'transcription'), this module is not the one you want.

IMPLEMENTATION

These encodings are implemented by using Encode::Korean::TransliteratorGenerator class which generates transliteration-based encoding objects. It makes you easily write a new transliteration-based encoding module or just convert Korean script into something, for example, into Cyrillic, IPA, or Greek.

LIST OF ENCODINGS

ISO_TS_11941

Encode::Korean::ISO_TS_11941 implements an encoding system based on the transliteration method of ISO TS 11941: 1996, Technical Specification, First Edition 1996-12-01, Information Documentation -- Transliteration of Korean script into Latin Characters.

SKR_2000

Encode::Korean::SKR_2000 implements an encoding system based on South Korean romanization system, officially released on July 7, 2000 by South Korean Ministry of Culture and Tourism (aka. Revised Romanization of Korean)

SKR_1984

Encode::Korean::SKR_1984 implements an encoding system based on South Korean romanization system, officially released on January 1, 1984 by South Korean Ministry of Education.

It is not ideal for encodings, since it uses non-ASCII characters: latin small letter o with breve (\x{014F}) and latin small letter u with breve (\x{016D}).

SKR_1959

Encode::Korean::SKR_1959 implements an encoding system based on South Korean romanization system, officially released in 1959 by South Korean Ministry of Education.

NKR_1992

Encode::Korean::NKR_1992 implements an encoding system based on North Korean Romanizaiton (National system of DPKR), released in 1992 by Chosun Gwahagwon.

It is not ideal for encodings, since it uses non-ASCII characters.

HSR

Encode::Korean::HSR implements an encoding system based on the transliteration method of Hangeul Society Romanization, released in 1984.

MRR

Encode::Korean::MRR implements an encoding system based on McCune-Reischauer Romanization, created in 1937 by George M. McCune and Edwin O. Reischauer. It is the most widely used method outside of Koreas.

It is not ideal for encodings, since it uses non-ASCII characters.

Yale

Encode::Korean::Yale implements an encoding system of Korean based on the transliteration method of Yale Romanization for Korean Language, developed by S. Martin and his colleagues at Yale University.

SKATS

Encode::Korean::SKATS implements an encoding system of Korean based on SKATS (Standar Korean Alphabet Transliteration System). It is not a true romaniztion (transliteration). SKATS maps Hangul Jamos to Latin alphabet equivalents as Morse code. It doesn't care about linguistic knowledge but can be perfectly recoverd to original Korean letters.

EXPORTS & MODES

Mode system is introduced but not implemented yet for real usage. The idea of modes is taken from Encode::Arabic. Refer to it for instruction.
