lively discussion on this list about the Korean word(s) for God, gods, 
spirits and the like.

I have credited the Koreanstudies List both in CanKor Report #315-316 
and on the Global Collaborative website, as follows:

greatly from a discussion among Korea experts on the Koreanstudies 
mailing list. [To see a collection of Koreanstudies prior postings,

Once again, thanks to all who contributed to my education last fall.

Erich Weingartner.
