ABSTRACT

Yim Chae-Hun. 2009. Antonymy and Sentence Meaning Formation. Korean Semantics, 30. The purpose of this paper is to inspect the function of lexical semantic relation at the level of sentence meaning. That is, lexical semantic relations not only represent relations between words in lexicon, but act as mechanism of sentence meaning formation. I inspected only the role of antonymy among another lexical semantic relation. Because antonymy is one of most principles governing the meaning of language. For this, I investigated corpus that a pair of antonyms co-occurred. Consequently, it is turned out that antonymy have the following functions. 1) the dividing and the generic, 2) the same meaning, 3) the contrast, 4) the concessive 5) the transition, 6) the expatiation.
