Korean Grammar
  Budzul | May 31, 2008 |
Just got this. Kind of a doorstop but appears definitive. About half the book is discussion of the language, and half is a lexicon of words and word parts. The Yale Romanization system is used—no Hangul. Some clunky ASCII-art diagrams of part-of-speech relationships belie the book's age.

[Two months later] After more looking around, I'm less impressed with this book. A better survey is The Korean Language by H.M. Sohn. Sohn's book is a clearly presented overview of Korean phonology, morphology, syntax and history. It makes the Martin book look like a cardboard box full of field notes.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0804837716, Hardcover)

By one of the leading scholars of East Asian languages, this is the first comprehensive book on Korean grammar in English. With a detailed analysis of modern Korean as it's used in both North and South Korea, Professor Martin provides explanations and translation tips for virtually all puzzling grammatical structures. In addition, modern usage is traced back to the fifteenth century, making this book essential to anyone reading older Korean texts.

Including character tables and an appendix of the radicals and their names A Reference Grammar of Korean will prove indispensable to students and is the definitive reference work for all those involved in Korean studies.
