    Abstract
    Eunkyoung Jo. 2015. Extracting Lexical functional words and Aboutness in Sentiment Analysis. Korean Semantics, 47. These days, there are enormous volumes of documents which are written by internet users. And we would like to figure out what aboutness those documents have in the aspects of sentiment and to find out some lexical functional words which don't have semantic polarity nor aboutness but play a role in determining the polarity. For doing so, we utilize statistical methods of word weighting scheme named TF-IDF(Term Frequency-Inversed Document Frequency) for extracting lexical functional words and of topic modeling named 'LDA(Latent Dirichlet Allocation)' for extracting aboutness. Overall, this paper deals with extracting lexical functional word and topic words of aboutness that will be used for improving the result of sentiment analysis. Therefore, we examined the effects of the lexical functional words as quantitative evaluation and reviewed the effects of including topic words as qualitative evaluation. Furthermore, we are sure that statistical analytic methods used in this paper would be useful for text sentiment analysis.

    Abstract
    Kim Sunhyo. 2015. Attainment and Directivity of Korean Peer Tutoring for Korean Learners; A Case Study of ‘Korean Writing Ⅰ’ on Seoul National University. Korean Semantics, 47. This paper explored that Korean Peer Tutoring(KPT) is proper learning activities for korean learners at the writing class, and suggested better KPT directions for foreigners and overseas Koreans. Through the survey KPT was verified a learning activity for improving Korean abilities of Korean learners on the basis of expectation and satisfaction of KPT activities, KPT domains which included learning activities and non-learning activities. Korean tutees evaluated KPT was very useful and proper learning activities, above all satisfactional rate is higher frequency than expectative rate. KPT has carried out both learning activities that Korean writing courses and non-learning activities that are focus on making friends and adjusting new college life and so on. However, it was identified that foreign learners evaluated positively both learning activities and non-learning activities, but overseas koreans prefer to learning activities, especially in writing.

    A Study on the Direction of Lexical Collocation Education in Grammar Education.

    MYUNG SUN SHIN | 2015, 47() | pp.55~82 | number of Cited : 7
    Abstract
    A Study on the Direction of Lexical Collocation Education in Grammar Education. Korean Semantics, 47. This study aims at investigating the educational direction and meaning of lexical collocation in grammar education. This study focus on the characteristic of Korean language culture which Korean lexical collocation has. Korean lexical collocation has the linguistic imagination of Korean speech community. If we see the linguistic imagination from a different angle, it is a other name of the linguistic creativity of Korean speech community. The linguistic imagination and linguistic creativity is a good educational contents in grammar education. So it needs that students explore the lexical collocation as a metalinguistic method for the improvement of their linguistic ability.

    Aspects of actual usage about names of Korean Language: Analysis of the twenty-first century’s Korean newspaper corpus.

    Abstract
    Oh, Saenae·Lee, Youngje. 2015. Aspects of actual usage about names of Korean Language: Analysis of the twenty-first century’s Korean newspaper corpus. Korean Semantics, 47. This article uses methods from corpus linguistics analysis to examine usages of names of ‘Korean Language’ in a 600 million words corpus of Korean newspaper articles published among 2000 and 2013. Using the corpus [Trends 21], The [Trends 21] corpus collected four major Korean daily and national newspapers (Chosun, Dong-a, Joongang and Hankyoreh). An analysis of noun collates of Korean language’s names found that order of frequency and a statistical method such as a t-score should be introduced for selecting keywords and extracting their associated words appearing in the same paragraph. A collocate is a word that appears near another word in the corpus more often than would be expected through chance alone. The main contribution of this research can be summarized as follows. Frequencies of Korean language’s names are 'Gugeo(27623th), Hangugeo(27555th), Urimal(17958th) and Hangungmal(6050th)'. 'Hanmal' and 'Haneo' rarely appear it concerned with newspaper genre preferred to select words familiar to the reader. 'Gugeo' often used like abbreviation of 'Gugoegwa' it means 'language arts'. 'Hangul' is not a name of Korean language. In media reports in South Korea write without distinction Hangul and Korean. It makes lexical misuse problems. In the corpus, Frequency of 'Hangul' is 34632th. 'Hangul' appeared periodically and used like polysemy. 'Hangul' used the name of Korean letters, Korean language's name and related vocabulary of word processor program. 'Hangugeo' and 'Hangungmal' used to in context of Korean for foreigners but 'Hangungmal' has informal usage than 'Hangugeo'. 'Urimal' used to name of Korean in native Korean perspective and antonym of loanword. In this corpus analysis, names of Korean have usages of various meanings differ from Korean dictionary’s definitions.

    A Study on the combinatory aspects and the argument structures in the combination of ‘-eohada’.

    Hyeong-gang Choe | 2015, 47() | pp.107~127 | number of Cited : 3
    Abstract
    Choe Hyeong-gang. 2015. A Study on the combinatory aspects and the argument structures in the combination of ‘-eohada’. Korean Semantics, 47. The goal of this paper is to check the semantic functions and argument structures in the combination of ‘-eohada(어하다)’. Usually sensory adjective or emotional adjective may combine with ‘-eohada’. The main function of ‘-eohada’ is strengthening the characteristic of activity. The combination of ‘-eohada’ can make ‘i/ga(이/가)’ phrase change to ‘eul/leul(을/를)’ phrase. There are two cases of substitutions for ‘eul/leul’ phrase. First, it is natural to appear ‘eul/leul’ phrase, but it is difficult that ‘e(에)’ phrase substitutes for ‘eul/leul’ phrase. Second, it is natural that ‘e’ phrase substitutes for ‘eul/leul’ phrase. The thematic role of ‘eul/leul’ phrase is ‘THM’. THM is also related to ‘e’ phrase.

    Abstract
    Kim, Keon-Hee. 2015. The re-examination of the morpho‧syntactic constraints related to the semantic characteristics of adjectives. Korean Semantics, 47. The purpose of this study is to examine the morphological and syntactic constraints which are related to the property and states of adjectives. Some verbs exhibit the multivalence of states, furthermore, simple states like adjectives and some adjectives exhibit the multivalence of static verb. However, the adjectives exhibit the multivalence of states optionally and finitely. Most of all, the adjectives have the gradability intrinsically, while the verbs have the gradability which depends on the telicity of internal argument. Also, the part of speech is fixed by adjective in the verb-adjective conversions exhibiting the gradability. In addition, the common meaning of ‘-i’ derivational adverbs of adjectives, ‘gradability’ reflects the properties of adjectives. Consequently, the semantic characteristics of adjectives, [property] and [states], are elaborated such as followings, in the adjectives, the [properties(gradability)] are evaluatively described in the viewpoint of speaker and the [states] are basically described, but the multivalence of states like static verb are described optionally and finitely.

    On the classification of Korean sentence types.

    Hae-Yun Lee | 2015, 47() | pp.167~1889 | number of Cited : 9
    Abstract
    Hae-Yun Lee. 2015. On the classification of Korean sentence types. Korean Semantics, 47. In this paper we try to present the new classification of Korean sentence types, using the concept 'sentence mood' which is understood as the complex of formal aspects and functional/semantic aspects. We cannot find any systematic classification from the previous researches, although there have been proposed various classifications of sentence types. Following the concept 'sentence mood', we examine first morphological and syntactic properties of each sentence type, and then construct the interpretation of each sentence type by using discourse-based concepts such as CG(Common Ground), QS(Question Sets), and TDL(To-Do List). As a result, we conclude that Korean has 6 sentence moods such as declaratives, interrogatives, imperatives, exclamatives, promissives and exhortatives. In addition, we show that there are some implicational relations among the sentence moods.
