ABSTRACT

Bak Jaeyeon. 2009. Korean connective endings and modality: focusing on causative, conditional, concessive connective endings. Korean Semantics, 30. The aim of this paper is to investigate the modal meanings found in Korean connective endings. Especially I give my attention to the ‘causal, conditional, concessive’ endings and their related constructions. I recognize that ‘-gillae’ can be treated as modal ending in that it expresses the perception on the state-of-affair of preceding clause. But ‘-euni’ cannot be regarded as modal ending because it is related to the perception on the following clauses. ‘-Deoni’ and ‘-eossdeoni’ are not modal endings either, because they can be analysed of modal or temporal prefinal ending and non-modal connective ending. The meaning of ‘-eundeul’ includes ‘irrealis’, and those of ‘-eossdeoramyeon, -eossdeondeul, -eossdeorado’ are related to ‘counter-realis,’ so we can say all of them are related to modal meanings. But I insist that the meanings of ‘-eumyeon, -eoya, -eodo, -deorado, -geodeun’ are unmarked in reality property since they are not always used in the irrealis contexts.
