    Sociolinguistic Segmentation Patterns of Fish Naming among Fishermen and Fish Merchants in Busan Korea

    Jisuk Kim | 2017, (102) | pp.7~51 | number of Cited : 4
    Abstract PDF
    Previous studies on the language vernacular used in Korean fishing villages have primarily been conducted from the perspective of fishermen. In order to address this, the present study investigates the pattern of language use according to different occupations by surveying the names of fish used by fishermen and merchants in the fish markets of Busan, Korea. Depending on the language context of the actor, the names used to refer to these fish may vary. The results of classifying the names of fish according to nomenclature mechanisms revealed different patterns of segmentation in fishermen and merchants depending on their environment and perspectives in the language context. Based on the patterns of segmentation, the foundation for a lexical network of fish names was established. Moreover, the segmentation patterns of fish names according to the perspectives of the two types of actors were described. These descriptions demonstrate that the actor’s environment and perception manifest in this segmentation in three stages: visual, analytic, and localized.

    The Diachronic Study on ㄹ Nasalization

    Shin Seongcheol | 2017, (102) | pp.53~89 | number of Cited : 3
    In the Middle Korean and in Modern Korean, ㄹ nasalization are also applied not only Stops(ㄱ , ㅂ , ㅅ), Nasals(ㄴ , ㅁ , ㅇ), but also Liquid. This study examines the diachronic change processes and patterns of diffusion. The type of change that occurred in C$ㄹ and ㅅ#ㄹ chains was quantified by the type of literature and the type that did not occur. As a result, ㄹ nasalization showed different forms of recognition depending on the type of words, the phonology, and the different types of consonants and vowels depending on the type of recognition, and the different aspects of the diffusion process. The phonology in Middle Korean and Modern Korean is mainly represented in Chinese characters, and phonological changes occur in the pronunciation of other consonants in front of a consonant. The consonants and vowels of the preceding syllable, regardless of the grammar of the antecedent to the modern language, began to be applied to the photo-communication, which was reflected in the phonographic environment. And it was thought that C$ㄹ chains were an exotic phonemic arrangement, and ㄹ nasalization was produced because of phonotactic constraints to eliminate the unnatural phonemic arrangement.

    A Probe into the Translation Paradigm of ‘則’ in Korean Annotation of Chinese Classics

    양언 | 2017, (102) | pp.91~115 | number of Cited : 0
    The thesis probes the translation paradigm, demonstrated in Korean annotation of Chinese classics, concerning Chinese function word ‘則’. The grammatical meaning of ‘則’ is represented mainly by Korean grammatical formatives ‘-니, -ㄴ디라, -야, -면, ~는’ etc. in literature of the period following the creation of Hunminjeongeum, especially in literature published by Gangyeongdogam. However, due to adoption of literal translation or metaphrase in the course of translating, a lexical morpheme ‘곧’ was later introduced to function together with grammatical formatives such as particles or suffixes. Besides ‘곧’, a special formative ‘-ㄴ 则’ appeared in 16th-century literature. Since the 17th century, ‘곧’ was less used, and ‘-ㄴ 즉’ began to be more frequently used. In the 18th century , ‘-ㄴ즉’ even appeared in non-translated literature. This indicates that ‘-ㄴ즉’, originally a result of translation from ‘则’, is undergoing grammaticalization. It is becoming a grammatical formative inherent to the Korean language.

    A Study on ‘hara’ Style Interrogative Endings of Modern Korean -Based on Korean Vernacular Letters -

    Lee Raeho | 2017, (102) | pp.117~142 | number of Cited : 2
    This study intended to examine the change, distribution, expansion, and extinction of the ‘hara’ style interrogative endings of modern Korean based on Korean vernacular letters. ‘nya/nyo’ style and ‘rya/ryo’ style interrogative endings, which were classified as polar(yes-no) question and content question depending on whether they had interrogative word in the middle Korean, were gradually integrated into ‘nya’ and ‘rya’ from the 16th century, and ‘-nya’ and ‘-nyo’ were finally integrated into ‘-nya’ in the beginning of the 17th century and ‘-rya’ and ‘-ryo’, ‘-rya’ in the mid 18th century. ‘-nya’ style interrogative ending has been used without personal distinction from the 17th century as the person restriction gradually disappeared. ‘-n ga/-n go’ and ‘-l ga/-l go’ had been mainly used in indirect questions in the 15th century Korean until 16th century when they were used widely regardless of direct or indirect questions. However, ‘-n da’ was still used exclusively in the sentence led by the second person subject. Meanwhile, ‘-n da’ style interrogative ending began to compete against ‘-nya’ style and ‘-n ga’ style endings in the sentence led by the second person subject. Through this course of competition, ‘-nya’ style and ‘-n ga’ style endings ate into the domain of ‘-n da’ style ending, reducing the distribution of ‘-n da’ style ending. Also, interrogative ending, ‘-n da’, inevitably came into conflict with ‘-n da’ which was used as declarative ending from the 16th century in terms of the form. In this process, ‘-l da’ in ‘-n da’ style disappeared first at the end of the 17th century and ‘-n da’ remained further until it disappeared at the end of 18th century.

    Chunhyangjeon-love, the combination of two eras

    han hui su | 2017, (102) | pp.143~167 | number of Cited : 0
    A study on the subject of Chunhyangjeon is based on the argument that "Chunhyangjeon is an unreasonable work that cannot be combined with the pre-modern "Yeol"(chastity) and the modern "liberation of identity(status)" organically. However, this argument does not understand the multiple subjects of literary works. In order to solve the above problems, this study expanded the conflict structure of Chunhyangjeon. In this way, it is revealed that being denied in Chunhyangjeon is ideology and character that suppresses people, degrades women, distorts love under the pretext of loyalty, filial piety and chastity not the pre-modern. Chunhyangjeon modernizes the pre-modern era while denying distorted ideologies and characters. It is the "Yeol"(chastity) that unifies the two eras. Lee Mong-ryong denies the old era of "Yeol"(chastity) as a means of maintaining patriarchal order, and goes to Chun-hyang with love. Chunhyang affirms that "Yeol"(chastity) is love. Lastly, the love, "Yeol"(chastity) of a new era is realized through Lee Mong-ryong who has been a royal secret inspector. Chunhyangjeon is not the inconsistent and irrational works of two themes but it is one of the best works of the Korean people who achieved modern identity(status) liberation by sublimating the pre-modern "Yeol"(chastity) to love.

    Song, Ki-seob | 2017, (102) | pp.229~255 | number of Cited : 3
    Yi Sang is a problematic author in Korea. He is problematic not just because of the abstruseness of his works, but because of the depth of his thought, which makes him a theorist and a philosopher. “Darkroom of a Map,” one of his novels, reflects this aspect vividly. It involves his discernment about life and the world which make it not just a fictional narration. They are based on modern urban civilization established in short period. “Darkroom of a Map” is abstruse, making studies on it mainly focus on deciphering the words and the statements in it. Despite all the studies, the meaning of many parts of the novel still remains veiled. The story could be summarized in simple texts: ‘He’ got out of his room, wandered the city, come back to his room, and got asleep. Nonetheless, the events are not reproduced in literary conventions. It imparts the thoughts about the events. The thoughts are made in a way of cartography. The thoughts include consideration about the time. Yi Sang recognize humans as esse of time. “Darkroom of a Map” is a novel of time-recognizing. It is the means of introspection. ‘I’ exist in specific time, not being constant, which implies there is no essential ego. The alter egos appearing in this novel could be other aspects of ‘I’. The alter egos comes from ‘outside’ Blanchot noticed. The alter egos from outside have meanings only in flow of time. ‘I’ become a stranger who is a mere form of expression. “Darkroom of a Map” of Yi Sang is an adventure of thoughts. A map connotes thoughts of repetition and renewal. The adventurous thoughts are confined to a darkroom, restricted by time. ‘He’ faces his alter egos with the form of time, the means of encountering strangers. Alter egos are located outside as well as strangers. He ascertain his identity, relating with the outside. It is possible only inside the time.

    Algorithm of Knowledge structuring and Digital memory

    Lee Yong Wook | 2017, (102) | pp.257~281 | number of Cited : 3
    The purpose of this paper is to examine the hypertext that digital technology has created from the viewpoint of memory and present the direction of development under the premise that knowledge starts from memory and knowledge structuring deals with the memory. The way in which people acquire, store and use knowledge, that is, knowledge structuring, is linked to the development of technology. Knowledge is the result of human thought activities, but the structuring that reveals it as concrete reality is the skill of technology. The invention of the printing press provided a turning point in knowledge structuring. Since manuscripts were standardized and mass produced in print, the circulation of knowledge was widespread, and after ancient Athens, mankind once again experienced civil democracy through the sharing of knowledge and information. Computers and the Internet structure knowledge in a completely different way from printers. It is not the metaphorical dimension of analog and digital, but the digital grammar of information-oriented knowledge structure that can be called 'hypertext' in the way texts place knowledge, in author's relation with reader, Once again, the revolutionary turning point of human intellectuals is scheduled. When the invention of the letter did not have to save everything in my mind, human intelligence was able to make a more sophisticated and complex idea. The typography supported the intellectual activities of human beings by facilitating the union of the forms that enable the invention to form tacit and by operating the hierarchical order and power mechanism of the knowledge system. It is clear that the artificial body of computers and the Internet (all techniques imitate the human body) weakens our memory. Instead, they will strengthen their ability to ask questions by improving their ability to think where they are and how to find them. Digital memory is the transfer of the contents of memory to the body of the machine, not to the human body. It is the most evolved device in terms of storage and preservation of memory, not because it relies on finite human memory, but because it is memorized by the machine. The problem is whether creativity and creativity can be expressed on the Internet by re-establishing the context of memory and expanding to imagination. At this point, the role of human engineering is expected. Hypertextro, the current knowledge structuring method, is unable to distinguish between knowledge and information, tagging uselessness and utility with quantitative values, and collision between memory and record making boundaries of thought impossible. Hypertext also repeats the type of the last medium in the transitional period. The new knowledge structuring method that overcomes the limitation of hypertext will emerge soon in the development of technology. It should be able to call the emergence of digitality beyond postmodernity by presenting direction of overcoming.

    Investing of the Possibilities of Korea Language Culture Education Using Illustrated Books - Focusing on Learners of Korean Language as a Second Language

    Jung-a Shin | 2017, (102) | pp.375~404 | number of Cited : 0
    Now it is generally recognized that education about Korean cultural factors is required in Korean Language education as foreign language. This means not cramming Korean culture to foreigners but role of communication to make them understand Korean culture and adjust well to life in Korea. In particular, language culture education emphasizes to grow communicative ability, and the application of literatures enables to understand and respond to knowledge about society and culture where the language is used, and discourses and behaviors fit to the criteria of the language community. Literature shows an individual's way to behave in some situations by contextualizing it, and provides useful insights about relations, emotions, attitudes, and the like. The method to suggest through contexts in cultural education, can raise cultural ability to be familiar with the targeted culture and to utilize the culture in linguistic activities beyond knowledge about the culture. Especially, Korean illustrated books among literature genres, contain various sub-cultures which are not seen easily in daily lives as well as the entire culture such as language, religion, and ethnicity with the stories including special situational contexts in visual images. Characteristics of Korean language culture seen in illustrated books include naming culture, honorific expressions, high context culture, appropriate speech-acts of asking and refusing, etc. High context culture can compose an intact discourse or phrase even a necessary element is omitted, and in some cases, when an element is omitted, it may be more naturalistic. In high context culture, in order to figure out the core contents of communications, it is necessary to be interested in the situation more than the message. Especially, in relations with family or friends, they already know the other party's message even though he or she does not mention it, they would reduce words with more limited language, and depend on the scenes or the situations more. Foreign learners would be able to understand and be familiar with Korean's language culture through learning from illustrated books. Honorific expression, one of characteristics of Korean language, shows Korean people's emotions. Korean's honorific expression is used to express for respecting the other party properly fit to the context of its usage. Based on illustrated books, to contemplate Korean's ways to think, to tell about the reason why Korean honorific expression is various and complex, and to learn various usage of 'we' and diverse greetings by Korean would play a meaningful role for their adjust to life in Korea. If the culture of naming is learnt in the contextual situation of illustrated book, it is easy to understand and effective for foreign learners to remember it. Culture is not just confirmed when meanings in dictionaries in the language used in literature texts, it is necessary to instruct them to understand the contexts of language culture and basic culture mixed in a literature work. Foreigners' aim to acquire culture is to adjust well to life in Korea, and its most basic requirement depends on acquiring language culture.
