Usage notesEdit

  • The spelling Hangeul/hangeul is from the Korean spelling in the 1959-SK transcription and the 2000 South Korean Revised transcription. Hangul derives from the older McCune-Reischauer transcription hangŭl written without the diacritics: it is the more common English spelling. Within the English Wiktionary, hangeul is preferred.
