Our written language is the best and peculiar one in the world which was protected through the bloody anti-Japanese revolutionary struggle, they noted, and went on:

President Kim Il Sung embodied the immortal Juche idea in the field of language, founding the Juche-oriented idea and theory of language for the first time in the history and developing it in depth.

The Juche-oriented idea and theory of language founded by the President were developed on a new, higher stage under the wise guidance of leader Kim Jong Il.

Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il established the Pyongyang dialect as an example of socialist national language to suit the socialist construction progressing in all spheres and polished words of foreign origin and uncultured words to be beautiful and correct Korean language.

The immortal feats they performed in developing the national language are shining with greater brilliance under the energetic leadership of Marshal Kim Jong Un.
