Map Description:
This map displays the locations where Korean is spoken in East Asia. While primarily spoken in North and South Korea, the speakers of this language cross national borders and inhabit small areas of Japan as well as parts of northern China. The mixed areas indicate regions in which additional languages are spoken that cross language family boundaries.

This original map was made by vectorizing data from the MultiTree language database and the Atlas of the World's Languages.
