ABSTRACT

This paper argues that there are two kinds of reduplicaiton, namely morphological reduplication and phonological reduplication in Korean. To making such a suggest, this article re-examines the concept and the classification of reduplication. In terms of the concept, this paper argues that 'synonym compounding', in which the two members of the compound are phonologically distinct should be included in the category of reduplication. It means that the mechanism of reduplication is not only based on phonological identity between the constituents of reduplication, but also based on semantic identity. The former is the phonological reduplication based on the phonological identity of reduplicants and the latter is the morphological reduplication. These two reduplications differ in the unit of reduplicant, word structure, word formation, the meaningful functions and the grammatical functions of reduplication.
