ABSTRACT

This thesis has purpose to examine the synonymy among ‘chaso, yacha, namul(vegetable)’ and establish the criteria in the class of vegetable synonyms. With this criteria for a basis, some ‘Fruit’ word-class and ‘Grain’ word-class having semantic relation with vegetable synonyms will be distinguished. In the earlier studies, the classification of vegetable word-class, fruit word-class, and grain word-class has been presented from the botanical point of view or biochemical point of view. ‘Woody plant’ or ‘herbaceous plant’ is botanically classified term. ‘Sweetness’ has been used as a biochemical criterion. But botanical or biochemical criteria are not enough and sufficient in the classifying synonyms. In this study humanities’ criteria or cultural criteria(especially korean food culture) are more appropriate to discriminate synonyms. Humanities’ criteria or cultural criteria will be applied to ‘Vegetable’ word-class(Chapter. 2). This criteria will be good for classifying the ‘Fruit’ word-class, ‘Grain’ word-class(Chapter. 3). Not only these ‘vegetable, fruit, grain’ word-class but also other boundary word-class in synonymy could be clarified with humanities’ criteria or cultural criteria.
