Is this a correct article?
I think this article is written by gyungsando person? I never heard seoul dialect or even any regional dialect has variations by classification of people, and even those classification of classes are unclear and has multi standards to which people could belong more than one at the same times. seriously, since when is way of news anchor talking in the news the classification of regional dialect? If it should be the regional accent, then it should be the regional accent of news desk. at the last part, who cares if people from gyungsando region find tone of seoul dialect irritating? why is this in the article? where is the proof that high tone in ending sound and 냐 are influenced by jeolla dialect? this article is I think done by the gyongsangdo person in their perspective of seoul dialect. It should be the article about seoul dialect not 'how does some gyoungsangdo person feel about seoul dialect'. the whole article is ridiculous. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 16:37, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
I read your comments, but I would like to refute some of your comments.
I'm not from so-called "Gyeongsang" area; I was born in (southwestern) Seoul and my place of family register ("Bonjeok") is in (central-northeastern) Seoul, though this does not merely mean my ancestors were Seoul natives, and I have been living in one of the suburbs of Seoul for many years. Thus, I do not have any negative stereotype toward Gyeongsang nor Jeolla people.
If you have a good command of Korean and search through Korean portal sites, you may see some writings about Gyeongsang people's feelings about some "particular" types of the Seoul accent, saying "annoying" or even "irritating". There was a battery & assult case in which several Daegu persons beaten up a woman from Seoul suburbs in a Korean wine bar just because she spoke with Seoul accent.
I don't mean that there are "multi standards" in Seoul accent. I just wrote about "Seoul dialect" not "Seoul dialect as the standard language" -- so as "dialect" itself. The exact spoken form of the standard form of the South Korean language is the "general form" -- used by news anchors -- I mentioned in the article.
Words like "some young news anchors these days may speak with some of features..." may be similar to what happens in BBC radio broadcasts; some presenters began to speak with some features of regional accents.
It should be regonised that Seoul dialect had a huge change throughout South Korean modern history. In the midst of those changes, Seoul dialect was influenced by local migrants, especially from Chungcheong and Jeolla. (Gyeongsang dialects could not do because of lingual differences) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Finefir2001 (talk • contribs) 03:50, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
