oops; sorry that I missed that! That would leave kor/ko
for "Modern" and "Contemporary" Korean in the proposal. If we decide to retain
the subdivision in 639-3 and go no further, the question is whether 639-2 needs
the two additional identifiers.
ISO/DIS 639-3 already includes
identifiers for middle and old Korean:
okm Korean, Middle (10th - 16th cent.) (documentation: http://cf.linguistlist.org/cfdocs/new-website/LL-WorkingDirs/forms/langs/LLDescription.cfm?code=okm)
Korean, Old (3rd - 9th cent.) (documentation: http://cf.linguistlist.org/cfdocs/new-website/LL-WorkingDirs/forms/langs/LLDescription.cfm?code=oko)
which align quite well with the LCSH
Dear JAC members,
We have received the proposal below to encode historical
stages of the Korean language, using the current identifiers to denote
"Contemporary Korean" and adding three additional sets of identifiers for
When I consulted with Millie about this request,
"Given the confusion about modern Turkish and Ottoman Turkish, I
would be reluctant to separate "contemporary" and "modern" Korean without more
evidence. LC has made the distinction in subject headings for Middle Korean as
935-1500 and Old Korean as prior to 935."
Discussion please (until 14 April).
