ABSTRACT

This paper aims to study the dynamics of sememes on polysemous words, between a low frequency basic meaning and high frequency derivational meaning in korean. First we introduce the <Korean basic vocabulary meaning frequency dictionary> and <Korea University Korean Dictionary> which based on the frequency information of the sememes on polysemous words. Especially, polysemy headwords are arranged by sense frequency order in <KUKD>. And the basic meaning is indicated as a shadowed circle-character. Second, we represent that the characteristics of sememe, distinctions between the basic meaning and derivational meaning, high-frequency sememes and low-frequency sememes. Next we suggest examples of word formation, morphosyntactic restrictions and creation of idiomatic expressions involved with high frequency derivational meaning. This finds help us look at the polysemous word in a new perspective.
