Khan Languages August 3, 2013

After another war Paekche lost the northern part of its territory – an area capital. After transferring the capital to the southern districts, the language of Paekche even more began to absorb elements of the languages of the Han. It is from this point on languages of Baekje and Goguryeo began to drift apart. It happened in the V century BC. By this time in the language of Paekche has developed an interesting situation – the aristocracy and ordinary people talking, in fact, in many languages. That is the language acquired such property, as bilingualism.

It is common to many world languages, but in the language of Paekche bilingualism led to the fact that the aristocracy and the subjects knew each other, but with difficulty. The situation is further aggravated by the fact that the aristocracy, the rulers of Paekche, who live in the north of the kingdom, had practically no relations with tribes living in the south. At the same time the common people was a close contact with these tribes, this led to the formation of Baekje two dialects – the language of the aristocracy, based on the language of Koguryo, and the language of the peasants, based in the language of Koguryo, but mixed with the languages of Khan. War with Goguryeo and moving the capital to the southern districts has led to the fact that the border between the two languages began to fade. In the language of the aristocracy gradually included elements language group khan, bilingualism is gradually eroding. Baekje language survived until the middle of VII century – this time Paekche lost its power and influence, so the more powerful kingdom of Silla was not difficult win it. Of course, the language of Paekche was not dead after the merger of the kingdom of Silla. Native speakers gradually settled on the Korean peninsula and beyond.

The language of Paekche had a significant role in the development of language Sylla, assimilating with the languages of the peoples living on the territory of the United Silla. This unified language is a direct ancestor of the modern Korean language, which is now spoken by over 70 million people. But Baekje history of language is not limited influence on the modern Korean language. After entering the kingdom of Baekje in Silla, a large number of the aristocracy, including the King, had been banished from the kingdom in China and Japan. Close relations with Japan, Baekje was a long time, of course, that the language Pkche had an impact on the ancient Japanese. Many linguists would argue that in the VI – VII centuries in the first capital of Japan was the official language of Paekche. Last but not least is connected precisely with the migration to Japan, the last king of Baekje with a large number of courtiers. Today, the language of Paekche almost lost, of course, left many written records of Baekje era, which is enough easily deciphered. But here’s the phonetics of language, particularly pronunciation, forms and rules of speech from these sources to find and recover virtually impossible. Of course, the language of Paekche has similarities with the modern Korean language, but as far as it is large – know will never be.
