The antique wardrobe shown below belongs to a friend. It is supposed to have been produced in Korea. The inscriptions on it look Chinese. Is any of the readers of this blog able to decipher what it means?
Update: I posted the question also on the Zompist board. The result of the discussion was that it seems to be a purely decorative use of Chinese signs, some of which even non-existing, that do not form a meaningful text.
Since getting a Mag. Phil. in Slavistics at Ruhr-Universität Bochum in 1993, I haven't worked in linguistics for a living, but I'm still following developments in historical and especially Indo-European linguistics with interest. "Etymolist" is the repository for the results of my amamteur activities in these fields. My interests in conlanging lead to the construction of the languages of Tarra, documented in "About Tarra". The remainder of my interests is covered in "Hans Kramladen".
