Cia-Cia tribe members arrive in Seoul

Wednesday, December 23, 2009

Here's a quick update to this post: the nine members of the Cia-Cia tribe that were invited to visit Seoul arrived a few days ago and are being shown around the country - see articles here, here and here for news and some photos of that.

The articles mention that Korea is interested in trying to get Hangul adopted by other languages as well that lack a written script, but a bit part of Cia-Cia adopting it as their written script is the novelty factor and the intense attention paid to them by the Korean government as a result, but if a large number of other languages adopted Hangul as well the novelty might decline and simply turn it into another script. Without the extra attention paid by the Korean government it might not be worth the effort.
