Romanization and Word Division
General Practice
The Library of Congress will continue to follow the McCune-Reischauer systemto romanize Korean with the exceptions noted in this document. See:Romanization of the Korean Language: Based upon its Phonetic Structure byG.M. McCune and E.O. Reischauer ([S.l.: s.n., 1939?), reprinted from theTransactions of the Korea Branch of the Royal Asiatic Society. Full text of theoriginal document is available online from the National Library of Australia Website: http://www.nla.gov.au/librariesaustralia/cjk/download/ras_1939.pdf Note: A romanization table appears as Appendix 7, at the end of this document.
The Library of Congress will designate certain standard dictionaries [seeAppendix 1] as final authorities to resolve questions of contemporarypronunciation. A word will be considered to be pronounced as indicated inthose dictionaries, and romanized in such a way as to represent itspronunciation most accurately.
Conflict between Romanization Rule and Pronunciation
When romanization rules conflict with the pronunciation of a word, prefer torepresent the pronunciation.
