研究ノート Source Materials and Remarks
As Vietnamese belongs to the Hanzi cultural sphere historically, it has a great number of Sino-Vietnamese words, but as of present, Vietnamese writing system is based on alphabets. The author investigated the ability of Vietnamese speakers to distinguish between Sino-Vietnamese and Vietnamese native words. The results are as follows: the compound words which include a Vietnamese native word of high frequency, the Sino-Vietnamese words compatible with Vietnamese syntactic construction, and the Sino-Vietnamese words whose constituent order is changed to Vietnamese syntactic construction are liable to be considered as Vietnamese native words. Furthermore, the Vietnamese speakers who have obtained enough knowledge of Hanzi (Chinese characters) through the study of Japanese or Chinese are likely to identify the origin of Vietnamese words more correctly than those without such knowledge.
