Transcription of the Korean Language into the Greek Alphabet
Young-woon Song
January 2017

National Institute of Korean Language (Korean: 국립국어원) established the “Revised Romanization of Korean (RR)” to romanise the Korean language correctly into the Latin script. This rule has been officially approved by the Korean government in 2000. Now, all road signs, official documents and textbooks are obliged to follow this rule. Also, there are some proposed rules to correctly transcribe the Korean language into Japanese Kana script or Cyrillic script. However, currently there is no rule proposed for correct transcription or transliteration of the Korean language into the Greek alphabet. Therefore in this document, the transcription rule which can be consistently applied to all Korean words is proposed.
