ABSTRACT

This study aims to examine the conceptual domains of quotative verbs in Korean and to suggest classification of them on the semantic basis. Especially I insist that the semantic domains of modality and evidentiality can be conferred in classification of quotative verbs. Quotative verbs can be divided into speech verbs, thought verbs, and decoding verbs. Speech verbs can be divided into speech manner verbs and speech act verbs according to what respect of speech is specificated. Thought verbs also have sub-categories of generic thought verbs and modal verbs. Decoding verbs like 'deut-, baeu-' have their own category independent from speech verbs or thought verbs. Their semantic features are related to evidentiality that expresses specification of type of evidence.
