ABSTRACT

Polysemous word achieved its meaning extension thorough ‘cognitive salience principle’. However, in Korean, you could find some verb that doesn’t fit this principle, which is ‘Beo-ri-da’. Most of previous cognitive linguistic researches on the use of ‘Beo-ri-da’ usually explained it through the core meaning structure and meaning chain structure. This article is going to explain this complex meaning extension by complementing the restraints of previous research methods, while utilizing the maximum benefits of them. Furthermore, it will observe meaning extension phenomenon of ‘Beo-ri-da’ based on corpus. Meanings of ‘Beo-ri-da’ will be examined through dictionary explanations, and similarities and differences would be compared. Also, I will analyze the feature of meaning extension of ‘Beo-ri-da’ through establishing prototypical meaning, extended meaning and meaning network. Furthermore, I will focus both analysis and explanation about the usage frequency of ‘Beo-ri-da’ in terms of asymmetry.
