ABSTRACT

Shin Eon-ho. 2006. On the Polysemous Phenomena of the Present Tense in Korean. Korean Semantics, 21. This study is aimed to show an appropriate way to analyse the polysemous phenomena by investigating the contextual meanings of the present tense in Korean. The contextual meanings of the present tense can be divided into two groups. The one group is related to the contents of the propositions; repetition, truth, habit, etc. The other group is related to the mental shift. If we examine the two groups of the contextual meanings of the present tense, we can capture the commonalities between them and can find a way to unite them. Any group puts the objective situation in the area of the present reality. In the way we can unite the account of the polysemy of the present tense in Korean.
