Korean and Japanese is sister language basically based on the same Chinese character words. Through extensive interactions in various fields for a long time, the two countries have many similarities in terms of language much more than any other country in the world.  Of course, Korea has "Hangul", while Japan has "Kana" as own characters, but they are phonetic characters.  More than 80% of Korean and more than 90% of Japanese language derive from Chinese characters words.  Surprisingly, 2/3 of the two language share exactly same Chinese character words. That means, if one knows basic educational Chinese characters, one can understand the other language and can communicate easily if only know how to pronounce equivalent words.

This book lists approximately 8,800 core Korean words with Japanese and English equivalents including romanized pronunciation.  Main entries are in Hangul (Korean alphabet) alphabetically with Chinese characters, if any, followed by romanized Korean pronunciation and parts of speech label. In the second line, the entry’s Japanese equivalents followed by romanized Japanese pronunciation. And, in the third line, the entry’s English equivalents followed by standard American pronunciation.

Korean is written with two different scripts: Hangul and Hanjja (Chinese character).  While Hangul is mostly used, Chinese characters must be used in order to clarify meaning and almost 80% of Korean language derives from Chinese characters. 

Japanese is written with three different scripts: Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji (Chinese character).  Typical Japanese words are written with Hiragana and Chinese characters. 

Chinese characters must be used since almost 90% of the language derives from Chinese characters.  Katakana is usually used to write foreign words other than Chinese.

A syllable is part of a word that contains one vowel sound. In every word of two or more syllables, one syllable is stressed. It’s called ‘stressed syllable’. The vowel sound in that syllable is louder, higher in pitch, and longer than the other vowel sounds in the same word.

In this book, stressed syllable is written in larger boldface. (Example: academy [əkædəmi]) Unstressed syllables are often pronounced with the schwa vowel sound (ə). All one syllable words have primary stress when spoken separately. (Examples: big, day)

The contrast between stressed and unstressed syllables is very important because it helps to create the rhythm of English. The native English speakers rely more on stressed syllable to understand what you say than on the individual sounds of the word.

This book lists 16,616 core English words that are divided into 25 vowel categories containing stressed syllables and listed alphabetically within each category. Also the words are divided into three different levels of ESL (English as a Second Language) so that learners can practice pronunciation according to their levels. Level 1 (for elementary & middle school) is written in red, level 2 (for high school) is written in blue, and level 3 (for university and above) is written in black.

Words with same spelling but different stressed syllables or words with same spelling but different pronunciation are differentiated using following parts of speech.

 

[n.] noun   [a.] adjective   [v.] verb

 

This book is ideal for learners of English as a second language who want to communicate more effectively and also for native English speakers who wish to change dialects.
