    A Study on the Cultural Meaning of the Name ‘Koguryo(高句麗)', based on ‘Dongyi(東夷)' in the Oracle-Bone Inscriptions and ‘Kuryo(九黎)' in the Pre-Qin Documents

    Kyung Il Kim | 2009, (19) | pp.1~27 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Central to this paper is a hypothesis that 'Kuryo(句麗)' the core part of name 'Kokuryo(高句麗)' is derived from the name 'Kuyi(九夷)' which means nine kinds of Yi(夷) tribes. In a previous article 'A Study on the Word 'Dongshi(東尸)', the Origin of the Name 'Dongyi(東夷)' in the Oracle Bone Inscriptions of the Yin Dynasty', I proved that the name 'Dongshi(東尸)' in Yin Oracle Bone Inscriptions was the origin of 'Dongyi(東夷)‘. In another previous article 'A Study on relation of 'JiuWu(九巫)' of the Oracle Bone Inscriptions and 'JiuYi(九夷)' of the "ZhuShuJiNian(竹書紀年)"etc.', I also verified that the 'Dongyi(東夷)' was sometimes called 'Kuyi(九夷)' which meant 'Yi(夷)' consisted of nine kinds of tribes. This record reveals the possibility that the 'Dongyi(東夷)' also consisted of nine tribes. In this context, I argue that 'Kuryo(句麗)', the core part of name 'Kokuryo(高句麗)' was originated from 'Kuyi(九夷)'. To prove the phonetic relationship between 'Kuryo(句麗)' and 'Kuyi(九夷)', this paper conforms that the initial of 'Ku(句)' and the initial of 'Ku(九)' have same reconstructed consonant *k-, so 'Ku(句)' of 'Kuryo(句麗)' and 'Ku(九)' of 'Kuyi(九夷)' can be converted due to the phonetic loan phenomenon 'Jiajie(假借)'. In rhyme field, 'Ku(句)' and 'Ku(九)' also can be exchanged because of same final, same main vowel. As for 'Yi(夷)' and 'Ryo(麗)' two characters also can be exchanged because not only are their initials close but their finals belong to same rhyme group.

    A comparative study on Korean & Chinese simpler form of Chinese characters

    dong-choon Ryu | 2009, (19) | pp.40~54 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this paper is to compare simplification rules and the resulting figure between Korean & Chinese simpler form of Chinese characters. At first We take a look at the history of the shape of a Chinese character`s simplification, to generate simplification rules. We introduce main opinions about the time when the traditional Chinese characters appear in Korean documentary records. and we induce the simplification rules based on simpler form now widely used. According to the analysis of this paper Korean & Chinese simpler form of Chinese characters appear the same pattern in general, that is to say often used characters which the number of strokes is large are mainly simplified. However, to Koreans Chinese characters are borrowed letters anyway, and it is not easy to reflect the changing pronunciations, so the simplification of the shape is mainly used. Through the comparative studies of the simpler form and simplification rules we ultimately need to seek the smooth communication within the Sinosphere by the unification of the Korea, China and Japan`s Chinese characters.

    A Contrastive Research on Double Object Structures of Expressive ‘give’ in Modern Chinese and Korean

    김종호 | 2009, (19) | pp.55~67 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    This study attempts to investigate the double object structures of expressive ‘give’ in modern Chinese and Korean. First, based on the meaning of‘give’, we set the mark ‘给/주다’ after the verbs, and check legality of the sentences in the two languages. Second, we transform the double object’s position in sentences by using Chinese preposition or Korean postposition : ‘把/을’, ‘给/에게’ and ‘向/에게’. We present four related sentence structures such as: ‘{V}+(给) +IO+DO’ and ‘IO에게+DO를+{V}+(주다)’; ‘把+DO+{V}+(给)+IO’ and ‘DO를+IO에게+{V}+(주다)’; ‘{V}+DO+[给]+IO’ and ‘DO를+{V} + IO에게+[주다]’; ‘[给/向]+IO+{V}+DO’ and ‘IO에게+DO를+{V}’. And according to the transformation, we make comparison between the two languages.

    韩国语“좀(jom)” 和汉语“一下(儿)、一点(儿)、有点儿” -句法、语义、语用对比

    LEE EUN KYOUNG | 2009, (19) | pp.68~82 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    A Korean word “jom,” followed by an adjective, verb, or predicate, is used to represent a low degree or a little amount of something, a short period of time, or to suggest smoothly or obtain consent. It involves four concepts referring to a small quantity: Firstly, the absolute level of the quality which an adjective means is poor. Secondly, as a result of comparison, one appears to be lower than others. Thirdly, the absolute number of verb’s patient is small. Lastly, the intensity of manner of speech is weak. Otherwise, however, in some cases ‘jom’ can be used to enforce and demonstrate the manner. The range of meaning that Korean word“jom”takes correspond with three Chinese words, ‘有点儿’,‘(一)点儿’,and ‘一下.’ Although all the traits of Chinese words which refer to ‘a small quantity’ are synthesized, they are somehow different from the whole meaning of ‘jom.’ The reasons are here. ① The position of ‘jom’ in a sentence can be diversified. ② ‘Jom’ can appear more than once or consecutively in one sentence. ③ ‘Jom’ can be present in negative imperative sentences, but both ‘一点儿’and ‘一下儿’ can not. ④ ‘Jom’ can be used independently in the conversation. ⑤ When ‘jom’ contains a sense of premise, it can be equivalent to the Chinese word, ‘一点儿.’

    Translation of jiu in the Bible translation

    황지연 | 2009, (19) | pp.83~95 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    This paper studies how 就, a conjunctive marker, which forms cohesion in the Chinese source text was translated into Korean by comparing the Chinese Bible as a source text and its Korean translation. The result of the study demonstrates that 就 used in the Gospel of Mark was translated into a variety of Korean conjunctive markers. In particular, explicit conjunctive markers were found in many cases due to the characteristics of Korean language which heavily relies on conjunctive endings and conjunctions. Unlike Korean, Chinese is an ideographic language which does not use much of conjunction, therefore, translating Chinese into Korean tends to add conjunctions for clearer meaning. Of course, there were some non-explicit cases where 就 was not translated but such cases were limited. However, non-translation does not mean that the information that a text intends to convey or the content of a proposition was altered or lost. In Korean text, 就 was translated as temporal, additive, adversative and continuative conjunctions, most of which were additive.

    A Study on the Syntactic and Pragmatic Features of Rhetorical Questions

    Jaeseung Park , 권선아 | 2009, (19) | pp.116~134 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this study is to classify syntactic features and pragmatic functions in rhetorical questions and to provide learners who study Chinese as a second language with more accurate utilization guidelines in learning rhetorical question patterns. Rhetorical questions mean sentence patterns conveying the opposite meaning of what character symbols indicate. While it is a kind of question sentence, it does not ask for information but is intended to convey a speaker's attitude or opinion. The scope of this study includes only wh-questions in rhetorical questions. This study started from the belief that even if rhetorical questions use question patterns they have their own syntactic structure. Furthermore, this study focuses on the discussion that the pragmatic functions of rhetorical questions can be more segmented, not limited to emphatic meaning. This study is indented to analyze the syntactic features of rhetorical questions with them classified into lexical factors and intended destruction of syntactic rules. Also, various pragmatic functions in rhetorical questions are classified into function as modality markedness and anaphora and analyzed to newly classify pragmatic functions.

    A study of the subject in Tao Yuan Ming's and Yi Hwang's drinking poems

    전영실 | 2009, (19) | pp.145~155 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Wine is the thing which can forget our concern in our life. Tao Yuan Ming(陶淵明) and Yi Hwang(李滉) were representative of the poetry of Chosun and China. They also wrote the poem of drinking poems. Though Yi Hwang wrote his poem by way of the pattern of the same rhyme as Tao Yuan Ming's poem, there is some difference between their works. I recognized that they had the same subject through their drinking poems. First, they expressed their feeling of transiency in the life. Why did they feel the transiency of their life? It was very difficult for them to serve as public officers. They can't also endure the wicked manner of other people. When they were in a public career, they always hoped to return to the country where we can avoid our worry. Second, even if they had no enough money, they wanted to enjoy themselves in the country. They wanted to seclude in the country to overcome poverty, to avoid the disorder world and to give up the public officer. Third, they also wrote a wise men's life which they respected .Especially, Tao Yuan Ming wanted to follow secluded men's nobility because he expected to live like them. Yi Hwang emphasized more academic and virtuous aspects than those of Tao Yuan Ming. Yi Hwang was one of the best scholar of Confucianism of Chosun. So he wanted to follow wise man's behavior.

    A Study on 'Sik (識)' and 'Byeol Jae · Byeol Chwi (別材·別趣)' of 『Chang Rang Si Hwa (滄浪詩話)』

    김선희 | 2009, (19) | pp.160~177 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    『Chang Rang Si Hwa (滄浪詩話)』 : an essay on poetry composed by Um Woo (嚴羽) in end of the Song Dynasty made a huge repercussion in the history of poetics in China. Through the work, Um Woo intended to reflect and criticize the literary men's trends of those days; which were ignoring the nature of poetry being bound by Jeong Go (典故) : an authentic precedent and Su Sa (修辭) : a figure of speech. In this study, I researched the poems created by Lee Baek (李白) and Du Bo (杜甫) in consideration of 'Sik (識)' and 'Byeol Jae · Byeol Chwi (別材·別趣)': knowledge or understanding and special quality · special style, respectively, of which concepts Um Woo presented in 『Chang Rang Si Hwa (滄浪詩話)』 · 「Si Byeon (詩辨)」. What Um Woo presented in the section of 「Si Byeon (詩辨)」 can be summarized to two opinions. First, he told that the nature of gusto of poetry was ‘Si Do Jae Myo Oh (詩道在妙悟)’ : the principles of writing a poem lie in being enlighten, and embodied it as 'I Seon Yu Si (以禪喩詩)': learning poetry through Zen, in which Zen (禪) and literature were inter-related. Second, he insisted the state of being enlighten (妙悟) about creating poetry (詩作) could be learned though the methods of 'Sik (識)' and 'Byeol Jae · Byeol Chwi (別材·別趣)' and worshipped Seong Dang Si (盛唐詩) : a style of poetry creation in Tang period. He considered Li Baek and Du Bo among High-Tang Poets as those poets who had perfectly mastered creating poetry. Um Woo tried to explain the nature of poetry by analyzing both Li Baek and Dubo, and insisted that their poems should be studied as then people learned Confucian classics in the sections of 「Si Pyeong (詩評)」 and 「Go Jeung (考證)」: poetry review and historical research, respectively. Criticizing the study trend to focus on, simply, the words and phrases (字句) and authentic precedents (典故), he emphasized the importance of appreciating the nature of poetry by presenting the concepts of 'Sik (識)' and 'Byeol Jae · Byeol Chui (別材·別趣)' in the poems of Li Baek and Du Bo. He lay stress on the importance of acquiring the nature of poetry by accumulating one's abilities to discern and judge, and, eventually, intended to explain the superb state of 'Oen Wae Ji Ui (言外之意)’ : meanings which lie beyond what's been told, through which a poet could naturally express in his poems without being bound by the knowledge existing inside of the poet.

    A Study of Xiángzi's Servility Revealed in “Rickshaw Boy” - Centering on the perspective of N. Berdyaev's 『Slavery and Freedom』

    kang yun hyung | 2009, (19) | pp.224~242 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    In his novel 『Rickshaw Boy』, Lǎoshe (老舍 (1899~1966): A Chinese novelist / play writer) describes a contradictory society encroaching upon a man. Lǎoshe places the cause of the main character Xiángzi's misfortune on individualism and the structural contraction of the society, which neglects the lives of people in the lower classes. However, he does not present specific breakthroughs for the cause. Is a human a slave or free being? It is never easy to answer this question since human being can be a slave or be free by himself or herself. If Xiángzi was in different circumstances, could he be free? What if he got a rickshaw that he always had wanted to have? Yet, the answers to these questions are already exhibited in the novel. The result is the same. Considering this, N. Berdyaev's『Slavery and Freedom』suggests a considerable number of points. And here is the reason why it can not be determined that Xiángzi's life, in Lǎoshe's novel『Rickshaw Boy』, was like that of a slave resulted from the contradictory society of those times or was a destruction caused by individualism. The main character of 『Rickshaw Boy』, Xiángzi, had many chances to choose and he did make a choice by his own free will whenever he faced one. Yet, the reason for the failure of the choices he made was the different servilities that existed inside him. Servility is presented in the properties that we each possess or the sexual seduction; it is also exhibited in individuality that is hiding inside human beings. Xiángzi, in the novel, seemed to make an attempt to free himself from all that subdued him, yet he could not do so ultimately. The freedom comes when one acknowledges his or her personality and tries not to lose his or her life from outer thing. This study intends to point out that Xiángzi was doomed to be a loser because of his servility within; he was already a slave to himself before being affected by the contradictory society. Such phenomenon could be due to the servility of Xiángzi but also to that of inside all human beings.

    A Study on the Naxi Culture : Mortuary Rituals of the Naxi described in ≪Dongbajing≫

    이주노 | 2009, (19) | pp.273~285 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    筆者在這篇文章里集中考察納西族的生死觀. 爲了把握納西族怎麽認識死亡, 這篇文章首先査考了與不老長生和延壽有關的≪東巴經≫的經文, 然後査考了納西族的喪葬祭儀, ≪東巴經≫的經文和神路圖. 根據于與不老長生和延壽有關的經文, 納西族將死亡看做誰都不可避免的必然的自然規律. 納西族的喪葬儀式分爲兩個階段, 一個是火葬亡者的肉身的‘西開’, 還有一個是濟度亡者的靈魂的‘西務’. 納西族相信, 亡者的靈魂通過這兩個階段, 回到納西族祖宗的古地, 就是居那什羅山, 永遠不滅. 東巴在擧辦喪葬儀式的時候, 按照亡者的身分和經歷, 以及喪葬儀式的程序, 吟誦與各個程序合適的經文. 這些經文將死亡看做不是與生活的斷絶, 是向自然歸依和自然合一前進的過程, 也是生活在居那什羅山的連續. 納西族在擧辦喪葬儀式時使用神路圖, 這就是爲了把亡者的靈魂讓進祖宗的古地使用的宗敎畵. 神路圖由鬼界,人界和神界的三個部分而成, 這幅畵除了納西族固有的宇宙觀和宗敎觀以外, 還夾帶着外來文化的多元要素.

    Discourses on Korea in Modern Taiwan: A Case Study on the Reports in the Liberty Times over the Last Five Years

    曾天富 | 2009, (19) | pp.286~303 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    This study targets the criticisms and articles related to Korea published by the Liberty Times, one of the three major newspapers in Taiwan, over the last five years, and investigates from what perspective and in what way the Liberty Times reported events in Korea and evaluated the problems Korea was facing. The reason why the Liberty Times was chosen as target for discussions is because it has been found that over the last five years, the Liberty Times, a press medium with a strong tendency toward political independence for Taiwan at all times, published more discourses on Korea compared to the other two major newspapers, China Times and United Daily News, and looked at Korea from a different angle. This also indicates that Taiwan people are changing the way they regard Korea. Among the Korea-related reports recently published by the Liberty Times, the reports on the change of the Chinese translation of Seoul, the capital of Korea, from "Hancheng" (Han City) to "Shouer", take up the majority, followed by the topics related to the sovereignty over Dokdo, and investigations of past historical events, such as the Cheju April 3rd Incident and the 1980 Gwangju Uprising. Other issues such as historical liquidation of Japanese colonialism and post-IMF rapid economic growth, as well as general issues on the history, culture, and politics of Korea, are also included. In this study, the most popular topics covered by the Liberty Times will be introduced in order, and the perspective behind these discourses will be analyzed. Although this type of investigation seems to lack organization and detailed planning in terms of the selection of the topics, given the characteristics of press media and the timing factor, the realism and concreteness can be ensured because the reports are based on the news in Korea.

    한류 속 중국인 가수 한경(韓庚)의 역할과 의의 《Chinese Singer Hankyung of 'the Korean Wave' in the Cultural Industry Perspective》

    Heungsoo Park , 장은화 | 2009, (19) | pp.304~325 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    This work was conducted to look into the significance of the first Chinese singer in Korea, Hankyung, from the perspective of the cultural industry, how much influence Hankyung has in the cultural interchange between Korea and China and whether there are any critical points to be reviewed.  The first chapter presented the objectives of the research. The second chapter reviewed previous studies of the Korean Wave and provided the backgrounds of the theories regarding cultural industry and Korean Wave. The third chapter was written about Hankyung’s importance, roles and limits he had in the cultural industry, in which he has been helping to spread the Korean Wave. Lastly, the fourth chapter speaks of the expectations and future possible roles Hankyung can play in the area of cultural exchange between Korea and China.   The research chose the ‘quality research method’ for more realistic and passionate report. For this, this paper analyzed Hankyung’s online fan community, webpage, news articles and various kinds of reports. Also, interviews with fans through e-mail were conducted. According the results, Hankyung was found to play an important role as a part of ‘(1)securing a bigger market of cultural industry, (2)creating lots of fans in both Korea and China, (3)being an ambassador of culture exchange between Korean and China and (4)promoting the image of both countries. However, there were also things to overcome for him to expand the stage, such as language and visa problems.   Hankyung, who has been playing an important role to raise the Korean Wave as a Chinese, has already made a great step to narrow the cultural gap from each country and advance the globalization. Just like the saying ‘Despite the different language, we see the same things’ written on his online fan community, we hope his passion and efforts for becoming an Asian top star to be delivered to all nations.
