ABSTRACT

Chae Wan. 2006. Metaphor of Baduk Terms. Korean Semantics, 20. This paper focuses on metaphorical aspects of baduk (go game) terms. There is a variety of technical terms used in the field of baduk. Baduk terms are composed of metaphoric expressions representing various techniques, style of play, shape of territory, skills of cutting, killing, and blocking, life and death, etcetera. Many of the terms originate from metaphorical expansion of ordinary words. Baduk is conceptualized by metaphor as war, animal, plant, food, house, and so forth. On the other hand, many of the baduk terms have assumed their extended meanings and are used in everyday life. We examined the baduk terms which are used as everyday words with their metaphorically extended meanings. Those usage is common in newspapers, internet media and cartoons. As examined in this paper, the baduk terminology enjoys the status of everyday words beyond that of technical terms. A study on these words can also proceed with a pragmatic approach, not only with a semantic approach. A further in-depth study could be conducted on the baduk terminology from various perspectives.
