Thorsten Traulsen

The Rise of the Text Style ‘Vernacular Explication’ (ŏnhae) in Early Chosŏn Korea, 1392–1598 - Diglossia, Canon, and Hermeneutics -

Abstract The invention of the han’gŭl alphabet at the beginning of the Chosŏn dynasty with its new state ideology of Neo-Confucianism entailed a re-negotiation of the role the vernacular had to play therein, and finally resulted in prescriptive and literal ‘vernacular explication’ (ŏnhae 諺解) of the canonical scriptures.
