ABSTRACT

Park Byeong-cherl. 2007. A Study on the Front Part of Road Names: Focusing on the Name of Alley in Cheong-ju City. Koeran Semantics, 22. The lot number based address system which is utilized exclusively in Korea has become ineffective and even absurd as the structure of the city became complicated due to rapid industrialization and expansion of urban life. Thus, the government is now executing the New Address System with the name of the road and the building number to establish much effective address system. This thesis intends to analyze the current status of naming of roads in Cheong-ju city focusing on the front part of the names of alley. Among 375 names, 130 names are constructed with basic-type of rear part and 245 with extended-type of rear part. 260 individual vocabularies are utilized to construct the front part and among these disyllabic words are most frequently utilized due to their economical efficiency and stability. Also, chinese-originated words(한자) are more frequently used than native words but this produces some problems in rhythmical harmony with the rear part. Toponyms are frequently utilized to form the road names and those that utilized ancient toponyms are very encouraging for the restoration of extinct native words. This research ultimately aims to find more adequate measure for the naming of front part of road names. All the data and conclusions that result from this thesis will be further utilized for this purpose.
