This study was conducted with the aim of revealing the semantic function of the dependent noun ‘Deung’ used in newspaper articles. We have set up two hypothesis on why the ambiguous dependent noun ‘Deung’ is frequently used in newspaper articles that call for facuality and objectivity. First, on a semantic level, there will be a context in which the ambiguity of the dependent noun “Deung” is rather used as a useful language device for the writer of the newspaper article. Second, at the formal level, the grammatical characteristics of the quasi-grammatical element, the dependent noun ‘Deung’, will contribute to structurally describing newspaper text. As a result of the study, we were able to derive four semantic functions of the dependent noun ‘Deung’ used in newspaper articles as follows: First, a function that increases the acceptability as a fact by increasing the ambiguity of information in relation to the nature of newspaper articles that must defend ‘factuality’. Second, the function of indirectly conveying the intent(subject) by allowing users to choose the amount and type of information to be labeled in relation to the characteristics of newspaper articles that must protect fairness and objectivity. Third, when writing newspaper articles that require a lot of information in a limited space, it naturally connects these information. Fourth, in relation to the characteristics of newspaper articles in which substitute expressions are often used, the it functions to increase the cohesiveness of text as an substitute expression.
