On the Modification of Certain Reconstructions of Proto- Korean- Japanese.
Mathias, Gerald B.
The paper discusses lexical evidence proposed by Samuel E. Martin, including later revisions thereof by R.A. Miller, concerning a genetic relationship between Korean and Japanese, based on an examination of vowel changes in Middle Korean and Old Japanese. While the author rejects Chinese phonetic evidence as inconclusive and affirms the legitimacy of internal evidence, he does propose revisions for those of Martin's rules which provide only partial correspondence between the two languages.
