ABSTRACT

Jo, Kyeong-Sun. 2009. A Study of the Utterance Verbs construction in Modern Korean. Korean Semantics, 30. This paper is about the utterance verbs in Korean. The utterance verbs means one, two and three-place predicates and also it describes the subject(speaker) gives utterance to hearer. In order to clarify the formation phenomenon of utterance verbs constructions, Jackendoff's theory is employed. The subject is the noun that has a [+human] feature in utterance constructions, utterance constructions express a language with contents. The argument structure of an utterance verbs construction is ‘( x ( (y) ( (z) )))’ and the conceptual structures are ‘CSu([ x ], [Event GO([ (y) ], [FROM [ x ]])]), AFF0([ x ], [ (y) ])’ and ‘CSu([ x ], [Event GO([ (y) ], [FROM [ x ] TO [ (z) ]])]), AFF0([ x ], [ (z) ])’. An object of a utterance verbs construction can be classified 3 types according to situation of dialogue; (1) the hearer-object utterance verbs, (2) the content-object utterance verbs, (3) the object-action utterance verbs. The syntactic structure of utterance constructions that is ‘N1-i N2-reul N3-ege V’ describes a N2 change from a N1 to a N3 in a utterance verbs construction. The ‘N3-ege’ noun phrase in utterance constructions is a complement to form meaning an utterance verbs construction.
