ABSTRACT

This paper argues that ‘-deo-’ included in ‘eossdeolamyeon, (eoss)deoni’ is the same as ‘-deo-’ in matrix clause. First of all, it is suggested that the meaning of ‘-deo-’ in matrix clause can be described as ‘past-unfinished perception’. And it is explained that ‘-deo-’ of ‘eossdeolamyeon’ is not the marker of a ‘counterfactual hypothesis’. It represent that the uttered idea is what a speaker has perceived. So, ‘-deo-’ of ‘eossdeolamyeon’ is intrinsically same as ‘-deo-’ in matrix clause. In relation to ‘(eoss)deoni’, it is argued that the irregularity of the non-identified subjective constraint of ‘-deo-’ was just related to the logical interpretation between foregoing clause and following clause, not being related to the meaning of ‘-deo-’ itself. In conclusion, this paper is trying to generalize the divided arguments of ‘-deo-’, showing the meaning of ‘-deo-’ included in ‘eossdeolamyeon, (eoss)deoni’ is not different with the meaning of ‘-deo-’ in a matrix clause.
