ABSTRACT

Kim, Kwang-Hee. 2004. Discourse Marker ‘in-ja’ in Korean : Aspects of Information-Induction and Cohesion. Korean Semantics, 15. In this paper I will outline a information-inductional function and textual analysis of cohesion through the discourse marker ‘in-ja’ in the korean language. Cohesion can be defined as the set of resources for constructing relations in discourse which transcend grammatical structure(Halliday 1994:309). And it’s one aspect of the study of texture. For the question about the status and function of ‘in-ja’, which is one of the discourse marker in Jeonnam dialect in Korean, we will analyse oral narratives and extract the discourse marker ‘in-ja’ in there. The result of this process is that discourse marker ‘in-ja’ serves the complex discourse function : as information induction, information switching, and information addition. Finally the cohesion relation in text would be constructed from these functions.
