ABSTRACT

Suk Joo Yeon. 2006. The Histoty of ‘-dorok’. Korean Semantics, 19. The grammatical form ‘-dorok’ had two basic meanings, [till], [deepening] in the early medieval Korean. The use of ‘-dorok’ of [deepening] decreased gradually. Consequently we cannot find its usage any more from the nineteenth century. It is because a single grammatical form ‘-dorok’ had heavy functional load, and because ‘-dorok’ of [deepening] was all the way in a intensive competition with another grammatical form ‘-rsurok’ in productivity. ‘-dorok’ of [till] has been highly productive up to now from medieval Korean. Throughout the period of modern Korean, the meaning of ‘-dorok’ of [till] has been changed to have three distinct meanings, [till], [degree], [consequence]. By examining its historical development, we can find out how the context had influenced a meaning development and how this development led to the appearance of the new syntactic structure ‘-dorok h∧-’.
