ABSTRACT

This study investigates how Manner of Speaking Verbs(MSVs) in Korean appear several layers of meaning based on context. The meaning of MSVs is differentiated from its verbs of communication in terms of Voice Quality, Explicitness, Formality, and Politeness. They have several properties of the sentence structure and context information. The alternation of sentential complement and conjunctive structure is freely allowed and equally interpreted on the MSV construction. The structures of MSVs are closely related to aspect that caused by their semantic/pragmatics features, namely, <scene>. The MSVs include more information when the utterances are spoken. The MSVs have various meanings according to the speaker's attitude of messages, situation, and the speech level in the context.
