Expect Effect / Research Utilization

1. It can contribute to the study of the exchange of language and literature in East Asia. Through the discovery of new research topics called Manchu language and literature, it will be the starting point for the study of the interrelationship and influence of various languages and cultures in East Asia, focusing on the Manchu people. 2. Through the integration of language data recorded in Manchu language, it is possible to provide basic data for conducting a systematic study on "negotiation pattern between Korean and Altay control". Also from the Manchu language as a starting point, it can induce interest and research on various languages of East Asia. 3. It will provide a foundation to vitalize the research through the compilation of language and literature data from alienated fields. Globally, "Manchu and Manchuria" is an alienated field of study and is being studied by very small number of scholars, whose systematic data collection may lead to the revitalization of the study of Manchu and Manchu literature in the field of alienation. 4. The source of the discovery of new research topics can be provided. In the meantime, Manchu has been treated as part of Chinese literature and is not being studied in earnest, which provides a source for a new research topic called "Manchu literature." For example, language and literature can contribute to the discovery of various subjects of research, such as literature, language, and folklore in East Asia. 5. It can lead to continued expansion of Manchu language education. Based on the results of the study, it is expected to play a major role in continuing expansion of Manchu's base, which is the basis for enabling Manchu to exist on Earth and for many people to learn it. 6. It provides a topic to explore the efficient approach of Korean language education. Through comparative studies with Manchu and contrast studies, it is possible to explain the grammatical specificity of Korean language with a universal principle of language, which is the source of efficient Korean language teaching methods and teaching method development. 7. It is an important source of cultural education in Northeast Asia. The reading results of the Manchu language and Manchu literature materials can be applied to the education of Korean folklore and East Asian folklore, and comparative research between Manchu and Korean folklore can be conducted in the fields of Manchu folklore and Manch. For example, a comparative study between Manchu shaman and Korean shaman could result in a more intense study of Korean folklore.
