(p.160) Chapter 11 Korea and Poland
The Ideology of Kokugo

Lee Yeounsuk

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter describes how Hoshina sought in Prussian German policy on Poland the direction Japan should take with Korea. The (Japanese) government-general of Korea had asked him to investigate political problems regarding languages and language policy in Europe. As Hoshina recalled, “the government-general's office keenly felt the importance of kokugo policy in ruling Korea at that time.” This concrete proposition for the colonial rule of Korea motivated Hoshina to further commitment to research on language policy. Hoshina eagerly collected resources and diligently investigated language problems in Europe, especially in Posen Province under Prussian-German occupation (today's Poznan, Poland), where he witnessed the reality of the language policy and recognized its serious consequences.

Keywords:   language policy, Hoshina Kōichi, Korea, Prussian German policy, German Poland, Posen Province, colonized Korea, colonial policy, linguistic assimilation
