ABSTRACT

This paper deals with formation and word order of ‘wa/kwa’ conjoined noun phrase. This study particularly concentrates on animacy. Previous studies categorize animacy in two binary features([+animacy], [-animacy]) and organize animacy hierarchy depending on degree of animacy. It is usual that constituents of conjoined noun phrase have same status in terms of animacy hierarchy. Under any circumstances, however, constituents which are have different degree of animacy can construct conjoined noun phrase. In a aspect of word order, there is a tendency for a constituent which is located at higher position with animacy hierarchy precede another constituent. For conjunction of noun phrases with same degree of animacy, three principles influence word order; me-first principle, naturalness principle, salience principle. Though, due to special culture in Korean society, in some cases word order doesn’t correspond with degree of animacy or general word order principle.
