Jump to: navigation, search

This list of Konglish terms generally contains Konglish terms not readily understandable to a native English speaker, similar to wasei-eigo terms in Japanese language. Many Konglish terms were invented by Koreans through non-standard abbreviations or combinations of English words, or by applying a new meaning or usage to a common English word.
