ABSTRACT

Yim Chae-hun. 2006. Sentence Meaning and Event. Korean Semantics, 21. This paper studied what sentence meaning is, and to which sentence meaning is paraphrased. This work enables to treat sentence meaning as united entity.In many previous researches, sentence meanings was regarded not as whole entity but as sum of the meanings of its parts and the way they are syntactically combined. But this compositionality principle cannot account phenomena related sentences clearly. Because sentence meaning is represented not by sums of its parts, by interactions of whole and parts.In this paper, sentence meaning is regarded as whole entity, namely event. Besides it, utterance situation was introduced. Utterance situation is background that interface with event.Through this view, we can account for many phenomena, namely sentence entailment, adjunct semantics, nominalization etc.
