ABSTRACT

Lee, kwang ho. 2009. A research on co-occurrence patterns of adjective antonym pairs for dictionary building and vocabulary education. korea semestics, 30. Based on 10 million word semantically tagged Korean corpus, this paper proves that antonyms co-occur 6 times more often than the chance would allow. And it is discovered that antonyms tend to co-occur in particular constructions. 171 antonym co-occurrence patterns are found, by examining 2,703 sentences in which antonyms co-occur. These co-occurrence patterns identify 9 words ‘나쁘-’, ‘해롭-’, ‘어렵-’, ‘궂-’, ‘싫-’, ‘불길하-’, ‘언짢-’, ‘힘들-’, ‘슬프-’ as antonym of ‘좋-’and extract many sentences in which each antonym pairs co-occur. Collecting antonyms and their co-occurrent sentences from the corpus can be a systematic methodology for building an antonym dictionary. And antonym co-occurrent patterns enable the language learners to acquire the knowledge of semantic antonymy and the actual uses of antonym pairs in particular syntactic constructions.
