ABSTRACT

This study is based on the Korean-Chinese parallel corpus, utilizing the Koreanconnective morpheme '-myenseo' and contrasting with the Chinese expression. Korean learners often struggle with the use of Korean Connective Morphemeespecially when there is a lexical gap between their mother language. '-myenseo'is of the most use Korean Connective Morpheme, it usually contrast to the Chinesecoordinating conjunction. But according to the corpus, the contrastive Chineseexpression to '-myenseo' is more than coordinating conjunction. So through thisstudy, can help the Chinese Korean language learners learn easier while studying'-myenseo', because the variety Chinese expression are found from the parallelcorpus that related to '-myenseo'. In this study, firstly discussed the semantic features and syntactic characteristicsof '-myenseo'. The significant semantic features of '-myenseo' are 'simultaneous'and 'conflict'. So in this chapter the study use examples of usage to analyse thespecific usage of '-myenseo'. And then this study analyse syntactic characteristicsof '-myenseo' through the subject constraint, predicate constraints, temporalconstraints, mood constraints, negatives constraints. then summarize them intoa table. And the most important part of this study is Chapter 4. In this chapter, it contrastedthe Korean connective morpheme '-myenseo' to the Chinese expression by analysingthe Korean-Chinese parallel corpus. As a result of the analysis, the frequencyof the Chinese expression that contrasted to '-myenseo' is summarized into <Table3>. It can see from the table that the most common Chinese expression comparativeto '-myenseo' is non-marker patterns. That means the connection of sentence inKorean can use connective morpheme what is a clarifying linguistic marker, butin Chinese it often connect the sentence by their intrinsic logical relationships. So the conclusion of this chapter is that '-myenseo' can be comparative to Chineseconjunction, expression, non-marker patterns and liberal translation patterns, which are more than Chinese conjunction that discovered before. In the last Chapter, as the conclusion part of this study, it summarized andsuggest the limitations and the future research direction.
