hangeul

Definition from Dictionary, a free dictionary
The really happy man never laughs—seldom—though he may smile. He does not need to laugh, for laughter, like weeping is a relief of mental tension—and the happy are not over strung.

Usage notes

  • The spelling hangeul is from the Korean spelling in the 2000 South Korean Revised transcription. “Hangul” derives from the older McCune-Reischauer transcription “hangŭl” written without the diacritics: it is the more common English spelling. Within the English Wiktionary, “hangeul” is preferred.

Dictionary notes

  • MSN Encarta Dictionary lists only the spellings “Hangul” and “hangul”.
  • Merriam-Webster Online lists only the spelling “hangul” and notes that it is often capitalised.
  • Oxford English Dictionary lists the spellings “hangul” and “hankul”, and has examples with hangul, hangŭl, and Hangul.
