East Asian Languages Curio
Chinese culture dominated much of East Asia (for this reason termed by some the ‘Sinosphere’) for centuries, resulting in a large influx of Chinese vocabulary, concepts and ideas into the languages surrounding it.
Today, for example, Japanese, Korean and Vietnamese have large numbers of words of Chinese origin. This Sino-Xenic vocabulary, originally written with Chinese characters, still plays an important role in these languages’ modern usage.
As an example, some 20% of modern Japanese speech is Sino-Xenic, and as much as 60% of the lexicon in a standard Japanese dictionary has come from the Chinese.
