ABSTRACT

This study is aimed to understand the characteristics of Double-Meaning and then to set up categories of it. Generally, Double-Meaning has been studied in the ambiguity category. But there are some differences between Double-meaning and the ambiguity because the ambiguity is able to have many meaning, while Double-Meaning is able to have just two or three clear meanings. Therefore, we have to reconsider them how to set up their categories. The features of Double-Meaning are as follows; First of all, Double-meaning speech has just two or three clear meanings. Second of all, Double-Meaning is not able to get a simultaneous reaction from listeners but to get a sequential reaction from them. Last but not least, even if one meaning is chosen by listeners, the other meanings could influence on listeners’ interpretation processes. I would like to prove the phenomenon of Double-Meaning and to explain the Double-Speak and the Double-Bind theory among the phenomenon of languages caused by the Double-meaning using the frame theory and the gestalt theory.
