stnadard dictionay

What is it with the level of English in Korean language institutions? There was the "Collage of Huminity" banner at the homepage of the Dept of Korean Language and Literature at SNU, and now "The Stnadard Korean Dictionay" at National Institute of Korean Language. This is not just about giving a good impression of a product (Standard Korean Dictionary) that's being marketed, it should after all be an authoritative institution which holds a certain standard in any language. (What am I to say after all, I've had "pubic discourse" written in a conference presentation, and I assure you it wasn't about s€x in Korea.)

And lest there be no misunderstandings, this note originates from my deep appreciation of the online version of that dictionary, which I heartily endorse. (The 찾기 button doesn't work with Firefox, so type the word and hit the enter key.)
