Hanja (한자)




Hanja (한자, 漢字) is the name for Chinese characters in Korean, and more specifically referring to the Chinese characters incorporated into Korean. Hanja-mal (한자말) or hanja-eo (한자어, 漢字語) refers to words which can be written with hanja, and hanmun (한문, 漢文) refers to Classical Chinese writing, although "hanja" is sometimes used loosely to encompass these other concepts.
