    The deictic meanings and aspectual properties of 'o/gada'

    구종남 | 2011, (76) | pp.5~35 | number of Cited : 7
    This paper aims to elucidate the functions and properties of auxiliary verbs 'oda(come)' and 'gada(go)' in relation to the deictic meanings. 'O/gada' are deictic verbs when used as main verbs. The functions of these auxiliary verbs have not been explained enough in spite of the many studies about them. The Aspect functions of these verbs are similar to those of progressive makers in that both need time span in situation type. In this paper I examined similarities and differences between 'o/gada' and '-go itta'(progressive maker) and showed that 'o/gada' cannot be progressive makers. I argued that 'o/gada' are continuative aspect markers. The deictic center of 'o/gada' in the unmarked anchorage points are speaker, speaker's utterance time, and speaker's utterance location. The properties of the deictic center are maintained when they are used as auxiliary verbs. These deictic meanings are represented in auxiliary verb constructions. And 'oda' represents speaker's subjective view point, but 'gada' shows speaker's objective viewpoint. I proposed that these are related to deictic center of 'o/gada'. Lastly I explained the syntagmatic restraints of 'o/gada' to verbs, adjectives, existent verb 'itta' and copular 'ida', and showed the aspect meanings in relation to deictic meaning of 'o/gada' as main verbs. And I examined the meanings and usage of 'o/gada' when speakers have special normalcy and desirability. If speakers have desirability on a special state, they choose 'oda' and if not, they choose 'gada'.

    A Study of the Intentional Connective Endings in Modern Korean

    Lee, Kum Young | 2011, (76) | pp.37~62 | number of Cited : 7
    The aim of this paper is to investigate the intentional connective endings '-kocye', '-lye', '-lyeko' from the 17th to 19th century, which have not been studied well so far. First, this paper shows that the connective endings are realized in various forms and '-lyeko' occurred before the 19th century, which has not been reported in the previous studies. Secondly, this paper examines the syntactic features of the connective endings in several respects and the main results are as follows:1) The subjects of the preceding and following predicates must be identical. 2) '-kocye' and '-lye' usually follow [-stative] verbs and directly precede the verb 'do'. However, they can also follow [+stative] verbs, unlike those in Current Korean. Compared to '-kocye' and '-lye' which are productively used, there are only a few data of '-lyeko'. It follows only [+active] verbs and usually precedes a verb phrase. 3) The mood of the following predicates must be declarative, interrogative, exclamatory, or negative imperative. 4) The connective endings are subject to the constraint on combination with tense endings and thus, the tense endings can only occur in the following predicates. Also, they can occur with only a few prefinal endings: the subject honorific '-si-', the object honorific '-sap-', or the intentional '-o-'. '-si-' is usually attached to the following predicates and it is very rare that '-si- precedes the connective endings. Unlike '-si-', '-sap-' is attached to either or both of the predicates. The intentional '-o-' can only precede '-lye', but became obsolete after the 17th century. Lastly, this paper examines the semantic functions of the connective endings. As ther results, this paper points out that the basic meaning of the three connective endings is ① 'intention/purpose' and that unlike '-lyeko', '-kocye' and '-lye' can also mean ② 'hope' and ③ 'anticipation/change of state', revealing that they have undergone changes in their meanings. That is, while '-kocye' and '-lye' loose the meaning of ③ and ② respectively, '-lyeko' obtains the meaning ③ in Current Korean.

    A Study on Consciousness of Chastity in Yeolleohamyangbakssijeon

    Kim,Su-Jung | 2011, (76) | pp.63~83 | number of Cited : 7
    Yeonam Park Ji-won's Yeolleohamyangbakssijeon consists of three stories and their themes were faithfulness, chaste reputation, and forced dying in defense of ones chastity. He used a way of comparing the third story that he experienced and was widely known to the world with the other stories to put an emphasis on the second story. He carefully dealt with the area that the ethic view of that time did not allow to achieve his goal. However, he did not criticize chastity or allow remarriage. He considered the custom of chastity as a pride in Yeolhailgi, was not remarried when his wife passed away, wrote lots of biographies on faithful wives, and he considered chastity of widows right, but he suggested that killing oneself for ones chastity is a bad custom in the second story. In considering that he was a scholar within the institutional area of that time, it was very difficult to overcome social restrictions. He sublimed chastity into human sensation while accepting traditional view of ethics, but he refused chastity using euphemism that a person was forced to kill oneself as a means to enhance honor of family. In addition, he had a strong resistance against forced chastity. So his consciousness of chastity was derived from sympathy and led to criticism of inhuman institutionalization.

    The new materials about Iljimae in Japanese colonial era

    Seo, Shinhye | 2011, (76) | pp.85~107 | number of Cited : 4
    In this thesis, I analyzed two materials that were written in Japanese colonial era. Even though many people have been concerned of Iljimae, the material was written about Iljimae are few and far between. The materials which were already found are all fragmentary. These materials that I introduce in this thesis are described minutely about Iljimae. I introduced these materials and argued these achievement in this thesis. Also, I analyzed the transmission of the story about Iljimae by comparative criticism. The story of Iljimae was imported from China but was forgotten its source and background in our country. But only one episode based on China's book has continued to this day. A new episode was added to the episode. So the creation of Iljimae's story has continued.

    Writing Background of <Jusaengjeon>

    Shin, Tae-soo | 2011, (76) | pp.109~150 | number of Cited : 8
    t the end of <Jusaengjeon> of a North Korean edition, which is acknowledged as a rare and precious book among the copies of a different edition, its writing period and writer name are specified. It clarified that Kwon Pil wrote this book in the Gyesa Year Jungha[癸巳年 仲夏/May 1593]. However, depending on acknowledgement of this content, decisive divergence in writer, writing period, and direction of work interpretations can be made, so these matters have become major points at issue. Particularly, the research on 'Writing period' in historical and positivistic way is a vital matter to decide on the character of a work and its interpretation direction, but, even after the lapse of 10 or more years since this matter was posed, this discussion has not been attempted by anybody until the present. Thus, this research, acknowledging the content listed in the afternote of the North Korean version of <Jusaengjeon> as true, clarified the fact that Kwon Pil wrote this book in May, 1593 and the background of its writing at a historical and positivistic level. First of all, this research summarized the overall circumstances that the war progress until May, 1593, and took a look at the fact that it was actually 'Namgun'[the troops in the south] of the Ming Dynasty that stationed at Gaeseong in the spring of the Gyesa Year when Kwon Pil clarified that he happened to meet Jusaeng from the southern region while visiting Gaeseong, and also historical fact that there appeared the soldiers of the Ming Dynasty who broke away from the ranks one after another like Jusaeng. These facts become a major clue to understanding the writing background for <Jusaengjeon>, and it was found that the character setting in this writing was very realistic through actual overall circumstances at that time. Second, this research newly shed light on the circumstances of Kwon Pil at the time of May, 1593 through his collection of literary works and historical records. As a result, it was revealed that unlike the existing discussion that Kwon Pil was devoted to his family security while wandering from one refuge to another, rather, he was aggressively coping with the war while harboring a strong will for his loyalty and patriotism for his nation and a rise in the world. Kwon Pil, who was steeped in reading through almost all books of military science in his earlier times, aggressively coped with the war while putting forth a memorial to the King at the risk of his life asking for a severe punishment of the advocates for peace as soon as the war broke out, discussing military affairs by participating in the army in the cause of justice, and getting involved in the publication of books of tactics staying at a military camp. In this context, the fact that Kwon Pil frequented Gaeseong between spring and summer in 1593 where the forefront camp of the Ming Dynasty army stationed under the circumstances with the regain of Ganghwa-do and Seoul, which were the greatest base of armed resistance against the Japanese army, just ahead, is also interpreted as a level of saving his country, not as wandering from one refuge to another or caring for his family security. Such facts related to the circumstances surrounding Kwon Pil become a major clue to the understanding of his writing in May 1593. Third, on the basis of historical facts this research looked at above, this research inquired into the motive of the 1593 May creation and its readers under the critical mind-why Kwon Pil wrote <Jusaengjeon>? namely, what message did the writer Kwon Pil wanted to convey to readers? First, this research, based on the writer's creating intention suggested at the end of <Jusaengjeon>, took a look at the logical relations between the work contents and the reality of the interval between spring and summer. In addition, this research clarified that Kwon Pil wrote this work with the aim of encouraging and arousing the Ming army to participate in the war by giving admonition to the Ming army who were living in ease while dodging the war at that time. In addition, this research proved that the class of readers, whom the writer Kwon Pil, at the time of his writing, primarily bore in his mind, was the Ming army-to be more accurate, Namgun.

    A Study on the description structure and meaning of Nuhangsa

    오선주 | 2011, (76) | pp.151~174 | number of Cited : 2
    A most disputed point related Nuhangsa, the Gasa of Park, inro is about whether poverty discourse is true or not. To solve this problem, existing researchers focused on why Park, inro mentioned and expressed poverty. But this study start from more extended question. Poverty produce what kind of internal meaning indeed. As approach view to this question, it is noticed that meaning is originally produced throughout network of expressions. Thus, after looking into how work is structured by descriptive composition, and then how it is produces meaning relations. As a result, it can be said that Nuhangsa is a work that claim to advocate being content amid poverty and taking pleasure in acting in an honest way of Anyeon's life. And this work is the figuration of the mind-nature and self-cultivation process.

    A Study on Double-sidedness of the Duman River - Focussed on the Duman River Legend of Chosunjok -

    Lim,Chul-Ho | 2011, (76) | pp.175~204 | number of Cited : 5
    The Duman River appears to have two facets in the folk tales of Chosunjok: one is the river of life and paradise and the other death and separation. The reason why the character of the Duman river changes is that the reality of Chosunjok changes according to the flow of time. At the time Chosunjok moved and settled down around the river, the Duman river was a paradise to them. Because they were not under the despotism and exploitation of Joseon Dynasty, they had no other choice but to think of the life around the Duman river as the life in the paradise. It is the river of life because the ancestors of Manchues and heros of Chosunjok were born in the river. As the founder of Manchuria and the heros of Chosunjok were born in the same river, Manchues and Josunjok were brothers. The reality of Chosunjok who had no other choice but to live together with Manchues was mirrored in this view. On the contrary, the Duman river appears as a river of death and separation in its legends. The history and reality of Chosunjok who had no other choice but to live in a foreign country were mirrored in this view. After the Chinese administrators ruled and the Chinese guarded the river, the territory around the Duman River ceased to be a paradise. Chosunjok had to leave their family on the other side of the river and cross the dangerous river to make a living and some had to commit suicides in the river to finish the hard lives. That is the reason why the Duman river is recognized as a river of separation and death. The reason why the Duman River has a double-sidedness is that the reality of Chosunjok has changed from a state of the masters of the land, even though the land is other country's territory, to a state of the slaves under the Chinese rule.

    Literary Study on 『Maeonghannok(梅翁閑錄)』-Focusing on Jangseogak(藏書閣) and Cheollidae(天理大) versions-

    Sunhee Jeong | 2011, (76) | pp.205~228 | number of Cited : 0
    The biggest difference between the Jangseogak and the Cheollidae versions of the 『Maeonghannok』 is a quantity of episodes that the former is composed of 146 episodes while the latter is composed of 261 ones. The Jangseogak version is a reduced edition which excludes 100 stories about review, discussion, family of the author, Yanghan Park, and contradictory contents to ethics in the Joseon era from the Cheollidae version. This is because the author considered realistic and interesting stories as important. The 『Maeonghannok』 is set in the Joseon era from 1677 to 1746 when Yanghan Park was alive, and deals with people and anecdotes of people of the time. The Cheollidae version is chronicled, and volume one includes the upper classes' morality, thoughts and metaphysical aims, whereas volume two does stories of lower classes, rebels and life of upper classes. However, the Jangseogak version places the stories in the volume two of the Cheollidae version at the beginning. In addition, it is out of chronicle sequences of the stories. This has a more effect on interest of realistic stories than the reviews. The Jangseogak version has common stories with the Cheollidae version, but it hows some differences. First, it attenuates realism by deleting or shortening names and positions, and escapes from argument by deleting reviews. Second, it concentrates interest on specific stories and context by deleting less important and necessary stories, and by joining several stories or dividing one story into several ones. Third, it intends clarification of subject by deleting, replacing and inverting phrases. To sum up, the Jangseogak version seems to shift from recorded literature aimed facts and explanation to narrative literature aimed interest and context as important though it is dissimilar to the Cheollidae version in quantity, order and content of the stories. Meanwhile, the Cheollidae is the earliest and superior version while other copies of the 『Maeonghannok』 are modified or summarized. It contains the largest number of stories and personal circumstances and feelings. Also, it remains intact, whereas other copies have some errors in phrase and context by the changes.

    Japanese korean literature's forte and a gap of crack

    Lee Sang-Gab , Dukjoon Chung | 2011, (76) | pp.229~250 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract PDF
    Japanese government has made sabotage to 'Pro-Pyeong federation of Korean residents in Japan'(after 'Jochongreun') conspicuous after 1980''s, and has all the more made 'Anti-North Korea' 'Anti-Jochongreun' campaign conspicuous after 1995. This has accelerated the division between North Korean residents in Japan and South Korean residents in Japan. Fighting to that, there were many works that propagate and inbreathe the idea of North Korea. Nevertheless the tiny mood of change is seen after 1990's. For example the living problem surrounding 'pachingco' store are more handled or the conflicts between generation, and the deep cognition to the 'Nation' and 'Race' is seen. In brief, 'Jochongreun' does not stress one-sidedly 'Juche idea' and the soul of nation. Especially these gap of crack is important because we read off the tiny mood of change. 'Pachingco' store has dual meaning in the literature of North Korean residents in Japan. In economic side, that serves as tool that North Korean residents in Japan cope with Japan, at the same time shows in the condition of 'In-Japan‘ the living reality of North Korean residents in Japan. This shows a gap of crack between 'Juche idea' and the living reality of North Korean residents in Japan. If 'Pachingco' store shows a gap of crack between 'Juche idea' and the living reality of North Korean residents in Japan, the conflicts between generation shows their deep troubles in regard to the direction that North Korean society in Japan takes. Especially the works that handles 'Naturalization' show concretely the conflicting figure between 'Nation' 'Race'. To conclude, their works emphasize the individual domain that is not converged to the soul of nation.

    A study on Suh Jung-Joo's poetry in the 1950~60s

    임곤택 | 2011, (76) | pp.293~316 | number of Cited : 3
    This paper is about SUH Jung Joo's poetry in the 1950~60s. The 1950~60s is the period of the postwar devastation and restoration. Corresponding to this postwar situation and the fear of death, Suh Jung Joo begins to search for 'eternity'. In this paper, I analyze Suh's poems and essays, with the theory of mith, inquire the process of his search for eternity(Shilla), and explicate significance of his 1950~60s poetry. In two poems, 'Mudeung-eul Bomyoh' and 'Sangrigwawon', Suh tries to overcome the 1950~60s situation by dissociating human from nature. In these poems, geographical image such as mountain and river represents unchangeability, while the image of youngling and baby mediates eternity. Whereas essentiality and permanence converge into 'mind', there is hidden carnal desire behind mind which he separated. He continually reveals mind and body ambivalently in his poems. In his collection of poems, 'Shillacho', he reveals his resignation. His resignation is related to the fact that 'mind' is fully inseparable from body, and that this inseparability does not remove fear and apprehension of death. So, finally He went to face the 'virgin ghost' . With this, his journey to 'Shilla' is compeleted.

    Young Eui Chon | 2011, (76) | pp.317~350 | number of Cited : 6
    If a society is put under the control of the ruing class and elite group of society, A society is re-composited society on a dependent position and break down dependence quality with pull up the people's voice under the huge discuss. when it consider from the point of view Taebaek Mountains is narrative that show post-colonial of the people. Taebaek Mountains is narrative that is attack a korean society problem at the people's a point of view. The korean society problem is immanent from the feudal age. The trouble with landowners and tenant farmers about land possessions is a subject of possession and division, and trouble of the relationship of classes. The trouble is expressed several places in narrative. Yeom Sang Jin who has a leftist ideology thoroughly, Hah Dae Chi and a liberation army consist social system. that is after a nation confiscate a person's land, a nation divide land to the people equally for the people and release of classes. The other side Jeong hyeon Dong and the right wing landowners who are very close Japanese imperialism consist a system that is a nation and the right wing landowners deal in land for keep there vested interests of economy from the feudal age and a government of the U.S. Army comply with their consist. From this point of view the trouble with landowners and tenant farmers is not personal feeling. It is immanent trouble about land possession from the root. After liberation it was not cleanse of remaining of colonial, korean government officials who are very close Japanese imperialism re-appointment and they keep their property under the government oh the U.S. Army. After liberation korea have a complex stratum trouble that are land possession, cleanse of remaining of colonial, a confrontation between socialism and democracy ideology. The post-colonial quality show aspect realization of characters by side of the text. but it show side of the strategic narrative structures. Characters are the people, conscientious intellectuals, cooperators in colonial. The people want be independence people use defensive violence, conscientious intellectuals want to be the real mail body use change of consciousness who throw a chance themselves as colonizer, expecially post colonial quality as colonial cooperators is cooperation by a existence strategy. that is not simply resistance and logical cooperation of the Japanese empire. They achieve reappearance themselves to use dependence and cooperation, and overcome dependence quality, they get similar to the main body. these points have post-colonial quality. and the other side Taebaek Mountains show the people quality of characters to use enlightenment structure to use master and disciple relationship, methods of character forms to use jeollado's dialect and folk language. and demonstrate that the people quality of characters are post-colonial quality. this points have a significance. their positiveness prove competitional attitude of the people about irrationality, and their positive acts overcome Japanese empire and American new colonial. It is desire of the people who want recover loss of identity by colonialism. As a result Taebaek Mountains have meaning of post-colonial quality through solve the problem that is problem of race and people's release.

    A Study on the Moon Soon-tae's Novels of National Division

    guho Jo | 2011, (76) | pp.351~372 | number of Cited : 2
    Moon Soon-tae's novels deal with Korean native sentiment, joys and sorrows and public lives and will in which people lived away from their hometown without any roots. Especially, he considered the cause of community life collapse and humanity loss associated with Korean civil war, so he has focused on the problems caused by national division. 「Into Watermill」(1980), 「Royal Azalea Festival(Chujukje)」(1981),『Dal-gung』(1984) and『The Boy Born in 1941』(2005) depicted the conflict and affliction of national division and the plan to overcome in a multilateral way. The aspects of conflict and resolution in these works are similar, but offenders and victims try to understand each other. However, by understanding their position each other, it is righteous for the conflict to be resolved. On the one hand, the close examination of conflict cause and the recognition on the pain of conflict victim is not thorough, so it may be superficial reconciliation. 『The Boy born in 1941』dealt with how the wound of national division should be overcome. This novel do not show obvious resolution process because the targeted subject of grudge is not specific one, but unspecific majority. In addition, the method of resolution and painful past become precious assets and the dead become the life guide-that is understanding and recognition of life. This recognition can be possible for Moon Gui-nam, a main character and in case of living a successful life overcoming wound and adversity. If not, it is difficult to get out of that wound.

    A Study on the Application Method of Storytelling in the University's Thinking and Expression Teaching

    곽경숙 | 2011, (76) | pp.373~394 | number of Cited : 8
    As we move into the digital-based society, the atmosphere that regards emotional sensibility as important thing is proliferating over our society. This study places emphasis on developing emotionally sensitive and expressive skills by using storytelling technique in the university's thinking and expression class. Compared with fact-based information delivery method, storytelling is apt to share the mutual understanding between speaker and audience. In this way, storytelling can contribute to strengthen the emotional carrying capacity of the students. In this paper two types of learning models are proposed. One is autobiographical writing, and the other is the production and presentation of digital storytelling text. Autobiographical writing type covers two categories. The first category is autobiographical text reading and writing. The second is autobiographical storytelling and writing. The reading and writing type gives students an experience to reflect their lives quietly alone. In this type, students write their own writing by benchmarking the motif or pattern of the example story. In contrast, the latter heals students' wounds through talking to group members by externalizing the experience of the speaker and this leads students to a path of self discovery. The story that speaker has experienced is renewed to a current meaningful story by means of timeline. Making of digital storytelling text meets the current demands of literacy education. Through the production of digital storytelling text which consists of sound, visual, and story, students are able to capture the emotional communion effects. Especially self introducing UCC which should be submitted to the company for job application purpose has practical meaning. Except for self expression, storytelling can be applied various communication situations and has much effects which is left for the future study.

    Deokshin Kim | 2011, (76) | pp.395~413 | number of Cited : 1
    According to a survey conducted as part of this study, it was found that derivative education is overlooked or neglected in Korean language classes. Furthermore, it was identified that most textbooks cover only a few affixes, except for a few examples of teaching materials. This situation has arisen because several affixes have various meanings or are not productive in Korean and are few in number. This study discloses the problems that can result from not distinguishing an affix from a derivative, citing the following prefix derivatives: ‘DutOt (over + clothes), CheotInsang(First + impression), HotEbul (one layer + blank)’. The study also examined the necessity of educating students about derivatives.

    A Study on Setting up the Educational Information of Auxiliary Particle ‘Na’ in Korean Language Education

    서희정 | 2011, (76) | pp.447~477 | number of Cited : 2
    This paper aims to set up the educational information of auxiliary particle ‘na’ in Korean language education. Auxiliary particle ‘na’ has various semantic functions and is frequently used in our everyday life. However, semantic functions and learning stage of ‘na’ in 5 different Korean language textbooks are different in each textbook. Besides, the quantity of study on ‘na’ in Korean language education is very small. That is why this paper focuses on semantic functions of ‘na’ and learning stage arrangement of them. Since the objective of Korean language education is to produce a smooth communication with native Korean speakers, semantic functions of ‘na’ and arrangement of them are fundamentally done based on plenty of examples of ‘na’ put in the Sejong balanced corpus and the frequency of use of ‘na’. This paper sets up 7 kinds of semantic functions of ‘na’ through examples of ‘na’. Finally, major forms for presenting ‘na’ and ways of explanation for teaching ‘na’, as well as semantic functions of ‘na’ are arranged into 3 learning stages of beginner, intermediate, and advanced. Semantic functions of ‘na’ and learning stage arrangement studied in this paper are expected to help teachers present ‘na’ in a more systematic way, Korean language learners understand and produce ‘na’, and furthermore assist the compilation of textbooks and grammar dictionaries.

    A Study on Educational Improvement of ‘Correcting Official Documents'

    Yang Young Hee , 서상준 , Son, Choon-seop | 2011, (76) | pp.479~505 | number of Cited : 7
    The purpose of this study is to criticize the curriculum of 'Correcting the Official Documents' conducted by National Institute of the Korean Language (NIKL), and to suggest constructive solutions. As the instructors, the program did not achieve the high efficiency because the objectives between NIKL and the people in charge of education did not match. Thus, the lecturers are issuing the current problems and making resolutions as the improving methods of 'Correcting the Official Documents' education. Above all, official documents are the one type of writing which contains drafters' messages, not the sum of simple sentences. Therefore, the systematic education on the method of general writing should be executed. Furthermore, the education would be effective in the range of admitting the unique conventions of official documents. That is, there are special vocabularies or terminologies used only in these documents just as the academic papers have their own technical terms. This peculiarity should be accepted in the aspect of both contents and forms. To be brief, 'Correcting the Official Documents' education has to be regarded as the writings with topics, not to be remained in the plain state of revising wrong sentences. The curriculum of the program should focus on the course of writing education with taking serious consideration of consumers.

    A study on the writing class in the general education course for foreign students based on the conceptual metaphor theory

    Jung, Mi-Jin | 2011, (76) | pp.507~532 | number of Cited : 5
    The purpose of this study is to present teaching methods for foreign students in the writing class of general education course. This paper presents some conceptual metaphors and their linguistic expressions which help foreign students to write academic essays. And it suggests the methods for teaching writing based on the conceptual metaphor. The conceptual metaphor reflects the cognitive ways of Korean language users. Therefore students can criticise conceptual metaphors and the related way of thinking. Students can also discuss how the texts or theories are structured by conceptual metaphors before writing their essays. This study analysed foreign students' essays written in the experimental instruction. The findings show that foreign students could learn conceptual metaphor expressions and write them on their essays. But it is suggested that instructors should identify the fixed forms of the expressions and emphasize them in the class. The students wrote essays after reading and discussing some texts and theories based on the conceptual metaphor, but we need to conduct experiments more accurately and analyze the effectiveness of the teaching methods.
