The purpose of this paper is to elucidate the processes in which the abbreviated citation connective form ‘-damyeonseo’(-다면서) changes into sentence final ending which means confirmation, sarcasm, through grammaticalization, and clarify some of the semantic functions of these forms and the various characteristics of the sentences in which these meanings appear.
Depending on the fact that ‘-damyeonseo1’(confirmaion), ‘-damyeonse2’(sarcasm) grammaticalized diffenently, this paper argued that their meanings must be discriminated and their meanings should be described separately.
In addition, this paper argued that ‘-damyeonseo’ grammaticalized as a sentence final ending representing the meaning of awakening, and ‘-damyeonseo’ also grammaticalized as a connective ending.
I argued that in what principles sentence final ending ‘-damyeonse1,2,3’ have the different meanings. Furthermore, the terminal contour, syntactic, semantic, pragmatic characteristics of final ending ‘-damyeonseo’ were examined in this paper.
