The Gohangukian language ([고한국어 gohangugeo) is the language of the people called Gohangukians, originally from the country called Gohanguk, but now found worldwide as part of the Gohangukian diaspora. Most linguists classify the language as either a linguistic isolate or as a distant relative of Munghulish or Turksian. It has its own native alphabetic writing system, called gohangeul [고한글] but also uses Sinish glyphs traditionally, which it calls hanja [한자, but the syllable "han" is unrelated to the "han" in the language's name], similar to Nihonish.
