ABSTRACT

The purpose of this thesis is to identify the semantic characteristics of complex predicate 'hada'. That's because the semantic characteristics have not been discussed a lot. Also the reason why the subject of study is confined to complex predicate 'hada' is to be accepted as complex predicate in most studies for complex predicate to be discussed. Complex predicate constructions have the internal separation and independent argument structure. Though the preceding constituent of complex predicate has predicative, that's not absolutely the case. However the preceding constituent must have not argument 'hada' but other argument. If not so, a new argument must be realized. In case that asyntactic root, adverb or bound noun is used as the preceding constituent, complex predicate can not be realized. Light verb is 'its lexical meaning is not meaningless but very abstract, so light verb performs a role that sense subject of preceding constituent can be realized as the subject of complex predicate construction. However it is verb which can't confine the semantic role the subject of complex predicate construction has'. Therefore 'hada' was set differently compared to existing light verbs in this thesis. 'Hada' is heavily dependent since its meaning is very abstract in the process of forming complex predicate. Thus it can not have the independent argument structure. However it can have the dependent argument structure as it is combined with the meaning of preceding constituent and forms complex predicate. Syntactic intimacy and semantic relationship among associating constituent can't be the core characteristic to distinguish complex predicate.
