Ledyard's dissertation, *The Korean Language Reform of 1446*, now IS a
published book, in a somewhat revised and handsomely printed, hard-bound
edition: published by Singu in Seoul, 1998. It costs 25,000 won; i'm not
sure how much that is in US$, but it's a bargain. The work is discussed by
Young-Key Kim-Renaud in the book review that i referred to before, in WL&L
4:2, forthcoming.
