    A contrastive study on the Symbolic words between Korean and Chinese

    王元媛 | 김정남 | 2009, (71) | pp.5~41 | number of Cited : 3
    This paper aims to present the results of a contrastive-linguistic research on Korean & Chinese symbolic words and provide useful fundamental learning materials for both Korean learners of Chinese language & Chinese learners of Korean language. Although symbolic words can be classified by morphology and semantics respectively, this paper classifies symbolic words in categories meaning such as those related to people, animals, objects, and natural phenomena. For those Korean and Chinese language learners who wish to use symbolic words creatively rather than receptively, the classification scheme will not only help them in remembering the words but also in finding precise symbolic words. This study further classifies Korean and Chinese symbolic words in the semantic categories into mimetic and onomatopoeic words, presents a representative list of potential responses, and examines the semantic and formal characteristics. In the case of Korean language, the words with differences of nuance due to their vowel, exist in synonymous symbolic words. Thus, in making the list table of symbolic words in this study, we arranged the words to be separated by their vowel. That is, light vowel symbolic words and dull vowel ones are placed independently at each column. In contrast, the Chinese language also has special characteristics in its phonetic forms but because its characters form the basic units of meaning(logographic morphemic), it does not have the phonetic symbolism in the sense that the Korean language does in its existence of nuances. However, Chinese mimetic words reveal the characteristic of verbs or adjectives with similar meaning or iteration forms replacing each other as well as showing repetitive patterns such as ABAB or AABB. Chinese Onomatopoeic words also contain repetitions but unlike mimetic words, many of them are one-syllable words and mostly have reiterations in the form of AA. Concrete conditions may be different, but reiterations are common to both the Korean and Chinese languages. In morphological terms, adverbial iteration forms occur after the verb or adjective in Chinese mimetic words, and the verb or adjective and the forms of iteration have a solid cohesion so that they are recognized as one unit. On the other hand, Korean symbolic words have the special characteristic of forming new words by optionally affixing ‘ -하다, -거리다, -대다’ to symbolic adverbial roots.

    The study on the Meanings of ‘Sunjeon’ - Concerning the Category of Sino-Korean root forms and 'Sunjeonhada and Sunjeonhi'-

    Shin, Eun-Su | 2009, (71) | pp.43~86 | number of Cited : 1
    The purpose of this paper is to describe 'Sunjeon', which is the root form of the adjective form 'Sunjeonhada', as an independent two-syllable Korean adverb, and to examine its lexical meanings. First of all, this paper researches how two-syllable Sino-Korean roots from the adjective form of 'X-hada' are categorized, and how 'Bunmyeong' that has the same trace as 'Sunjeon' is classified. This paper addresses the various meanings of 'Sunjeonhada' and 'Sunjeonhi' respectively in diachronic linguistics. 'Sunjeon' is the '-hi' omitted form of 'Sunjeonhi', the adverb form which is derived from 'Sunjeonhada'. 'Sunjeonhada' means 'purity or completeness' and 'only N, or all N'. Originally, 'Sunjeonhi' had the meanings of 'purity or completeness' and 'only N/VP or all N/VP'. Meanwhile, 'Sunjeonhi' as 'purity or completeness' has not been spoken since the latter 20th century. Compared to 'Sunjeonhi', 'Sunjeon' takes meanings of 'only N/VP or all N/VP'. 'Sunjeon' is widely used in spoken Korean.

    ㅸ>w Change and Phonological Character of w

    Eunji Yeo | 2009, (71) | pp.87~112 | number of Cited : 2
    This study regarded that /w/ had functioned as a consonant from the Korean of the Middle Age to that of modern times with regard to changes of ㅸ>w. /w/ is a separate phoneme, not a variation of /u/ since it does not show compensatory distribution with /u/. In addition, glide occurs or glide is inserted as a mean to avoid hiatus since its glide functions as a consonant in the syllable. Glide, w, in modern Korean is the weakening result of /ㅸ/. The trend that glide was inserted to avoid hiatus was conspicuous in the literature from 15-16th century. Weakening of ㅸ might contribute to expansion of distribution of glide w. And the expansion of distribution of glide might increase the frequency that glide was inserted for expansion of distribution of glide. Glide w is consonant, but since it is close to vowel in terms of phonics, it is less restricted by initial consonant cluster constraint in modern Korean.

    The Formation and Meaning of ‘Hyeop’(狹)-type Geological Name

    Cho, Hang-bum | 2009, (71) | pp.113~133 | number of Cited : 1
    The key to the interpretation of the meaning of a geological name is ‘antecedent,’ because the whole meaning of the name is decided by the meaning of antecedent. But antecedent is not fixed but transformed, and then is interpreted in various ways. This thesis studies geological names with antecedents, which indicate ‘hyeop,’ and examines various kinds of antecedents, how they change their forms, and the way they are interpreted when their forms change. Among antecedents which indicate ‘hyeop’ are ‘ganeul-’ type, ‘jop-’ type, and ‘sol-’ type. Their basic antecedents are ‘ganeul-’/‘ganeun,’ ‘jop-’/‘jobeun,’ and ‘sol-’/‘son’/‘soreun.’ And they change variously and make a variety of transformational antecedents. Transformational antecedents are interpreted in their original meaning, but if their morphological motivation weakens or loses, they are interpreted in different ways. In this case, the meaning of the geological name is reinterpreted and changes. For example, ‘ganibong,’ which comes from ‘ganeunbong’ is interpreted not as ‘small peak’ but as ‘a peak which looks like ‘got’(Korean traditional hat made of bamboo and horsehair).’ Any geological name’s antecedent has a very complicated transformation process. But the process is not always irregular. It has its own regular rules. If the rules are understood and applied properly, correct interpretation of a geological name’s meaning will be possible, however hard it was transformed. Therefore, for the right interpretation of a name’s meaning, it is essential to know the transformation process of a antecedent properly.

    A Study on Use of Delimiters in Early Childhood by Age and Sex: Centered on Children of Four to Six Years Old

    Lee Phil-Young | Kim, Jung sun | Lee, Sang Soog | 2009, (71) | pp.135~161 | number of Cited : 1
    In this study, the author identified the characteristics of delimiter use by children of four to six years old based on age and sex, according to appearance of forms and modes of use and appearance by distribution and modes of use. Frequency of appearance and number of speakers were investigated to be analyzed, and the results are as follows. First, children of four to six years old used more enhanced delimiters when their age was higher. As for the rate of frequency of delimiter appearance and the number of speakers by ages, '-en,' '-do,' '-man,' '-dula,' '-da(ga),' '-ggaji,' '-ba-ke,' '-buteo,' '-(ei)na,' '-daero,' '-ssik,' and '-mada' (in order) were seen in both cases, and use of delimiters was more frequent when their age was higher. Second, as for the frequency of appearance of delimiters and the number of speakers by sex, '-en,' '-do,' '-man,' '-dula,' '-da(ga),' '-ggaji,' '-ba-ke,' '-buteo,' '-(ei)na,' '-daero,' '-ssik,' and '-mada' (in order) were seen in both cases. Eight such as '-en,' '-do,' '-man,' '-dula,' '-da(ga),' '-daero,' '-ssik,' and '-mada' out of the total twelve delimiters were frequent in females in the frequency of appearance, and '-en,' '-man,' '-dula,' '-da(ga),' '-buteo,' '-daero,' and '-mada' were frequent in females in the number of speakers, indicating that females generally used delimiters more frequently than males did. Third, as for modes of appearance based on distribution by sex, '-en' was highest in rate of frequency and number of speakers. When age was higher, combination with case particles, endings, and delimiters was gradually higher. Combination with adverbs was frequent in childhood of four and five years old and then declined upon reaching six years old. Four, as for distributed characteristics by age, combination with case particles, endings, and adverbs was more frequent in females than in males, while combination with noun phrases and delimiters was more frequent in males than in females.

    Syntactic approach on reading texts regarding difficulty levels and coherence in TOPIK

    Ui Su Kim | Jung Eunjoo | 2009, (71) | pp.189~213 | number of Cited : 16
    This paper aims to investigate whether the reading texts in TOPIK have been correctly selected according to the different levels and whether the level of reading texts have sustained coherence within the same test levels. For this purpose, the 13th to 15th TOPIKs' reading texts were taken and analysed into syntactically-tagged corpus from which syntactic complexity of matrix clauses and embedded clauses were extracted. The syntactically-tagged corpus were classified into 9 different texts, according to the different levels and the times the tests were taken. After comparing those texts from various points of view, it was concluded that intermediate level texts were more difficult than those of advanced level. In addition, only the advanced level texts were coherent from 13th to 15th TOPIK. Following these results, it is suggested that the intermediate reading texts be made easier and the advanced texts made more difficult by modifying embedded clauses in the reading texts. Accumulation of text corpus can help towards solving these types of problems in selecting texts for TOPIK. (Hankuk University of Foreign Studies)

    SEOKJOON PARK | 2009, (71) | pp.215~243 | number of Cited : 6
    This article presents the direction of Korean education for members of multi-cultural families For this purpose, we first surveyed the need for Korean education of international marriage women immigrants. Furthermore, to find out what kind of people teach the members of multi-cultural families, we investigated the qualifications which institutions related to multi-culture required. As a result, we discovered that many problems of Korean educations for multi-cultural families came from lack of Korean educators' professionality. To find out about the Korean education for offsprings of multi-cultural families, we interviewed the elementary school teachers and analyzed the results. Then confirmed that they have problems with poor grades in studying than just the command of Korean language. As a conclusion, to correct the direction of Korean education for the multi-cultural families, this article suggested the points below. 1) The educators for the multi-cultural families have to be professional. 2) The levels, means and contents of Korean education for international marriage women immigrants have to be systematized and diversified. 3) Korean education for offsprings of multi-cultural families should be unified with regular school courses. 4) Many Korean textbooks and educational materials should be developed. 5) Korean education related to living culture should be increased.

    The educational significance of <Princess Bari> Moudang song and the learner-centered teaching model

    김영민 | 2009, (71) | pp.299~322 | number of Cited : 2
    Under the colonial mentality of scientific research that the so-called something Western is blindly believed to be something Modern, and that something Modern is regarded as something Rational and Scientific, it is true that we have done negative evaluations of our traditional culture. Shamanism is a complex phenomenon, and is a part of life in the social reality and our culture. There is no doubt that it has given the meaning of lives to Korean, let them form their sense of values, and let them choose their behaviors since Shamanism of Korea settled down in this country. Today, in the education of Korea, it is required that students should have a strong affection and interest rather than fragmentary knowledges of the culture, people, language and history of Korea through the education. Because affection and interest in their own culture enable them to have an internal understanding it, and enable to them to have the subjective pride and self-confidence only on the basis of understanding. The story of <Princess Bari> has a completed plot connected organically by figures with a definite character, and it is worth studying literarily, as well inquiring and diagnosing ancestors' group consciousness which is reflected in the development of the contents. This study inquired out the six values of literary education in <Princess Bari> as follows: 1. The expansion of world view. 2. The importance of the virtuous and moral life. 3. The idea of filial piety. 4. The will to overcome hardships and to achieve self-realization. 5. The balanced life and harmony with nature. 6. The consciousness of equality. And the learner-centered teaching model which is presented in the study takes "the idea of filial piety" as an instance out of educational meanings in <Princess Bari> with the value and spirit of the Korean people, and enables the ninth and tenth graders to interest in it, and motivates them to learn it, and induces them to make various responses, and enables them to express and understand better. This teaching model is composed of six steps as follows: 1. The step of motivation. 2. The step of introduction. 3. The step of development. 4. The step of consolidation. 5. The step of arrangement. 6. The step of further activities. It will be necessary to give shape to the changes of accomplishment process according to the level of learners and learning situations, and to design more various teaching models.

    이영배 | 2009, (71) | pp.323~346 | number of Cited : 3
    Abstract PDF
    Poonmulgut is having the face and the expression which are various. However, the form of entity and expression is indistinct. These points continue these days. It exists with that oneself and one entity. But, it was recognized with the effect which act and event is number of copies. Poonmulgut exists at time and spatial inside. These layers is the aggregate of strata which are discontinuous. Therefore, it is containing the thought and ideology of a time. Also, it often representations with concept. Namely it suggests the same cultural ideology of tradition, nation, populace, and community or the political economy ideology of modern time, capital, nation, empire, and colonization. Also, it presents as the thought of concepts implied the same social ideology of control, resistance, integration and discord. Of course, these concepts often cross the layers of ideology. Poonmulgut's studies are the product of processes overcame these problems. However, those studies are advanced still. The important point in this situation is to rediscover the socio-cultural contexts of poonmulgut's studies. In this study, these problems are treated importantly.

    Self-discovery Writing through Travel Gasa.

    ki-cheol jung | 2009, (71) | pp.347~374 | number of Cited : 3
    Both Literature and Education are in crisis. A fundamental solution to this problem is possible only by asking fundamental questions like "why do we teach literature?" or why do we educate?" The right answer to this questions is "happiness." The most fundamental element for happiness is a healthy 'self.' Travel gasa is made up of 'travel' as its contents and 'gasa' as its form. 'Travel' means a breakaway from daily life, but at the same time, it means meeting new things and people. Therefore, travel helps us find a new self and develop a healthy self. Gasa allows a sophisticated expression of our language. Also, with its matching antitheses, it enlivens our traditional rhythm. Those who study gasa are able to develop a healthy self and experience the beauty of our language in the process of writing travel gasa. This kind of writing experience helps us understand better other works of writing and also sympathize with the psychological conflicts of other writers.

    Literary Regionality of Jeju Special Self-Governing Province during the Korean War period

    Park, Tae-il | 2009, (71) | pp.375~416 | number of Cited : 6
    The purpose of this article is to find out Literary Regionality of Jeju Special Self-Governing Provinces during the Korean War period(1950-1953). Literary works by Park Yonggu(박용구), Kei Yongmook(계용묵), Jang Sucheol(장수철), Lee Dongju(이동주) is our target. The conclusion is as follow First, 「Six days of Jeju(제주도의 육일간)」 by Park Yonggu deals with a six days' short stay experience. The story is about concrete refugee life around Jeju harbor. This literary work is very important since now we cannot find arguments about the ordinaries of life during the wartime. Second, Kei Yongmook is a literary man who lived in Jeju as a refugee for 4 years. His Jeju essays keep importance because they actively record Jeju‘s climate and environment. These literary works reinterpret the objects which are part of Jeju’s characteristic scenary such as rocks, women and animals. Third, in Jang Sucheol‘s literary works, Jeju is the place where refugee literary man feels nostalgia. Specific refugee life is not showed up in his works. Instead, Jeju is the world of fairy tales or abstract reality looked by lonely boy's angle. Forth, Lee Dongju's Jeju experience is a travel literature. His literary works are full of admiration for women in Jeju and Jeju island itself. Such admiration for Jeju is the tool for emphasizing hometown's situation during war time which is apposed to peace of Jeju as a refuge. Because Jeju city become a center of Jeju Special Self-Governing Province, Jeju makes lots of problem nowadays. Hope there would be more self examination about reality by investigating Jeju Regionality during the Korean War period.

    A Study On Creative Writing Types of Second-person Fiction - Focused on 'You' identity and Narrator Positions -

    Lee, Mi-ran | 2009, (71) | pp.417~435 | number of Cited : 14
    Second-person fiction is a narrative in which the protagonist, or main character called 'you', is the object of the narrative. The purpose of this study is to classify creative writing types of Korean second person fiction. This study classifies second person fiction into four groups through analysis focusig on the 'you' identity and narrator positions. The first is a type of 'The disguised I and Auto-diegetic narrator'. It is the case in which narrator tells his story, calling himself 'you' in the story. The second is a type of the 'Protagonist-you and Peripheral narrator', in which narrator tells what he knows, or sees about 'you' in the story. The third is a type of the 'Protagonist-you and Extradiegetic narrator', in which the narrator tells about 'you' as a focal character, or what they obserbe the 'protagonist-you' outside the story. The fourth is a type of the 'Addressed reader-you and Metafictional narrator', in which the narrator, as implied writer, composes the narrative by inviting readers into the story. Second person fiction has a unique effect using the influence of second person pronouns. It affects how the reader feels about the narative and charges them to take personal responsibility. This is especially true, when using the present tense, The reader becomes absorbed in the 'you' feeling and entices them in to a vivid active scene, which is as real as if it were taking place before their very eyes. The function of the second pronoun or second person point of view, highlights the multitudinous choices available to the narrator. However, this analysis is in no way complete, and needs futher careful analysis and further discussion.

Now, the contents of study are summarized as follows. First, the death of characters who appear to「The legend of an archetype accompanies the form of the remarkable death. The tree is a space of resurrection and rebirth that are involved in the space of home and incest. In this case, the tree is the world-tree that punishes or protects human. Second, as the forbidden fruit stuck in Adam's throat is disclosed to God in Bible, Adam gets punished with the paradise-banishment. But the peach of the「legend of an archetype」becomes an innocent fruit that is eaten up by man. Third,「the legend of an archetype」is a story of brother and sister' incest for the restoration of human-archetype. That is, incest for the appearance of new mankind takes on the ritualistic character of the new world creation. Fourth, the sister of「the legend of an archetype」is 'an undefiled sister' and 'archetype of a virgin' who preserves 'the Holy womb', and prepares the way to paradise-return.

    Myoungpyo Choi | 2009, (71) | pp.467~489 | number of Cited : 5
    Bae In-cheol published African American poetry in the liberation period, and showed the unique characteristics of the era. He regarded African American as the symbol of contemporary conditions and poetized by comparing national identity to their situations. His African American poetry seemed to deal with the discriminated black, but its lines originally meant national identity. His efforts are enough to approve the ethical responsibility that poets should understand the signs of the times more sincerely and quickly than others. In particular, Bae should get a high valuation in that he excluded the method of possessing American good or bad images exclusively, unlikely the poets of the day. He made efforts to look at objectively the actual situation of ‘the Other’, America that concealed the historic tragedy and constructed the new order worldwide after the Second World War. It requires to extract an anti-American sentiment by approaching to his African American poetry emotionally or to foster dichotomous attitude that decides as leftist outcome by being captured to his organization’s ideology. That is why his poetry is different from other poets, and his position should be prepared in the contemporary preview.

    A Study on the Poet Kim si-jong, the Korean-Japanese Diaspora

    HA SANG IL | 2009, (71) | pp.515~535 | number of Cited : 7
    This study looked into the poet Kang Sun, the Korean-Japanese Diaspora. After liberation, the Korean-Japanese Diaspora poetry started from Huh nam-gi, Kang Sun, and Nam si-woo, and it was transferred to Kim si-jong, Kim Yun, Jung hwa-hum, Kim hak-ryeol, and Jung hwa-su. Kim si-jong’s poetry world is the most important text to read the past, present, and the future of the Korean-Japanese Diaspora. His attitude reflecting the two Koreas critically can be considered to show vividly Diasporatic subject by looking at the dualism of society of the Korean-Japanese who only followed the contrast of North and South Korean ideological contrast. In addition, his poetry should be praised in that it realized its own identity by practically facing the reality of dual languages of the Korean-Japanese Diaspora conflicting between the mother language and the mother tongue. His poetry has a significant meaning as the guide to newly establish uniqueness and subjecthood of ‘the Korean-Japanese’ beyond national ideality of the society of the Korean-Japanese who is still captured by North and South ideology. After liberation, the Korean-Japanese Diaspora poetry was based on historical consciousness and ideology of the Korean-Japanese who internalized their hurt of colonization and division. Therefore, most of works tried to stand for realistic nature directly showing political social issues, instead of focusing on deepening the lyricism to condense personal emotion to the indentified world. As post-nationalism, post-society discourse is currently appearing as the important issue beyond the boundary of race and nation, the perspective of ‘Diaspora’ and problem awareness have attracted attention as the effective discourse to understand and analyze the rapidly changing world. Kim si-jong’s poems have an important literary meaning as the text containing such the problem awareness.
