ABSTRACT

This study analyses syntactic structures of the sentences where some bound nouns have a pre-noun clause as a complement clause and a non-case marker nominal clause is a complement clause of bound noun phrase. For non-case marker nominal with a pre-noun clause as a complement clause, this study targeted 'sŏng' and 'dŭs', complement nouns that are characterized as arguments of 'sip’-₂and burŭ-'. These complement nouns can not be considered as subjects in consideration of a few syntactic phenomena, but subjects were analysed as nominal phrase of higher sentences that are subjects of judging 'sip’-₂and burŭ-'. As 'sip’-₂', a psychological predicate that selects arguments of experiencers and objects, has a feature in vocabulary, no case for its internal argument can not be presented. In addition, it is thought that as 'sŏng' and 'dŭs', complement words of 'sip’-₂', has a feature in vocabulary as non-case nouns, characterization of case markers is obstructed. Accordingly, this study suggests a syntactic structure representation that bound nominal phrases are characterized as a complement word of 'sip’-₂' to become V' . Then, this study examines a phenomenon that bound nouns such as ' ttaemun, narŭm and jŏn' have '- ki nominal clause' as a complement clause. According to general syntactic rules of Korean language, a nominal has non-case marker. As it is suggested that this non-case marker '-ki nominal clause' is related with syntactic property of complement nouns, this study specifies syntactic property of each complement noun. Therefore, for structural representation of the sentences where non-case '-ki nominal clause' is characterized, it is suggested that this nominal clause is characterized as a complement word of 'ttaemun' a complement noun, to have N' category.
