The National Institute of Korean Language is a language regulator of the Korean language. It was created on January 23, 1991, by Presidential Decree No. 13163 (November 14, 1990). It is based in Seoul, South Korea.

The institute was originally founded on an non-governmental level as the Academy of the Korean Language in 1984. When the institute gained status as a subsidiary of the Korean Ministry of Culture, it was renamed to National Academy of the Korean Language from 1991. It was again renamed to its current name in 2005.
