ABSTRACT

This study aims to research the differences of productivity of the syntactic combination and the morphological combination through the comparison of productivity of descriptive pre-nouns and prefixes. First in ch.2, we examined the property of descriptive pre-nouns and prefixes and eventually concluded that descriptive pre-nouns and prefixes can be distinction by only the breadth and narrowness of the distribution of those. In ch. 3, we examined the way of calculating productivity. So that we suggest two way of the calculating productivity that is ①'n'time occurences accumulation frequency/type frequency, ②'n'time occurences accumulation frequency/token frequency(n=1,5,10). In ch. 4 we practically calculated the productivity. As a result, the differences of the productivity of descriptive pre-nouns and prefixes are quantitative not qualitative, in other words, through the concept of productivity we can confirm the fuzzy category which is floating between syntactic layer and morphological layer. Consequently, These facts let us know that the differences of syntactic combination and the morphological combination can be understood by the degreeness not the 'yes or not'.
