Pyongyang, May 14 (KCNA) -- It is the strong will of the Korean people to firmly preserve, widely use and develop their written and spoken languages closely associated with the leadership of the peerlessly great persons and thus further demonstrate the dignity and advantages of the Korean nation. Rodong Sinmun Sunday says this in a signed article.
It goes on:
President Kim Il Sung authored the work "On Correctly Preserving the National Characteristics of the Korean Language" on May 14, Juche 55 (1966). The work has served as important guidelines as it gives comprehensive and scientific answers to the principled questions arising in preserving the national character and Juche character of the Korean language.
Clarified in the work in detail are the idea that it is an essential demand for the development of the Korean language and a national duty for the revolutionaries and other people to preserve its national character, the idea on the main orientation of properly preserving its national character and laying a foundation for developing it, the way of arranging and developing the Korean language and various issues in arranging the vocabulary.
The work sets out it as a very important idea to preserve and develop the national character of the Korean language with the speech of Pyongyang as its standard.
Leader Kim Jong Il has creditably carried forward Kim Il Sung's Juche-oriented idea of language. He profoundly elucidated the essential principle and scientific ways for developing the socialist national language and clarified the issues to be settled by the party of the working class to develop the national language. And he has wisely led the work to firmly preserve the Juche character and national character in the linguistic life as required by the demand of the developing revolution in the new century, in particular, in which the building of a great prosperous powerful nation is now making dynamic progress.
The revolutionary and national way of linguistic life which calls for firmly preserving the Korean language and the cultured language prevails among our people.
