Korean (Further language specific rules)

1. Interpunct (·) is a special character in Korean language, that is used for short in-line lists.


2. Special rules for spacing


    • The Use of Spacing Around ParenthesisThe decision of whether to put a space after the parenthesis depends on the grammatical structure surrounding the word. Unfortunately, there really is not way to know whether a space should be used or not without knowing Korean. But just because the spacing around parenthesis looks inconsistent doesn’t mean it’s necessarily wrong.E.g.: 브랜드 자산은 다양하게 맞춤화된 기준(브랜드 가치를 포함아여)으로 구성된다.


    • English word or phrase is inserted directly into a sentence without including the corresponding Korean word
      The English is used without parenthesis and it functions grammatically as a Korean word. Thus, it may or may not be followed by a space and this depends on the Korean grammatical rules:E.g.: American Civil Liberties Union의 한 변호사는


    • The Use of Spacing Around Quotation Marks
      The rules for spacing around quotation marks are also similar to those for parenthesis. Again, it depends on what would have come after the last letter before the closing quotation mark, had the quotation mark not been there.E.g.: 의무성 간부들은 “경악스러운 인사”라며


    • The Use of Spacing Around Periods and Commas
      Please just follow the English rules
