ABSTRACT

In this paper, I attempted to historical investigate the existing study on the applied aspect of Korean phonemic alternation. The discussion on the applied aspect of Korean phonemic alternation is hard to be based on the second language pronunciation acquisition study focused on English. Therefore, the research methodology on the applied aspect of Korean phonemic alternation should be confirmed through existing studies. In this paper, first of all, the list of Korean phonemic alternation, the experimental data, and the selection of subjects were critically examined in terms of research methodology. For the list of Korean phonemic alternation, I examined whether the “n" -insertion is valid for inclusion in the study. As for the experimental data, I argued that it is difficult to judge whether the phonemic alternation is learned or not, even though the phonemic alternation is applied within the word. As for the subject of the experiment, I examined the validity of subject focused on the correlation between the Korean proficiency and the timing of learning phonemic alternation. Second, I examined the results of previous studies in relation to the difficulty setting of phonemic alternation. The difficulty of phonemic alternation, I divided into studies on korean learner who is chinese native speaker and other language native speaker and examined it. And then I confirmed that the difficulty of phonemic alternation has a certain tendency irrespective of the learner’s native language.
