ABSTRACT

Kim, Min-sun. 2007. Object-Preposing in Korean and the Information Structure. Korean Semantics, 23. This study deals with the object-preposing sentence/utterances in Korean, and examines the sentence-initial objects according to the attached morphemes in the information structure. NUN shows that the objects are relationally given and represents ‘contrastiveness’. NP-NUN can be either contrastive topic(relationally given) or contrastive focus(relationally new). UL mostly shows that the objects are relationally new, but has no direct relation to givenness. Preposed NP-s are relationally given. In conclusion, neither sentence-initial position nor preposed NP-NUN have no direct relation to topic(relational givenness).
