ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to examine the Meaning Correspondence of refining target words and refining words. The public perception of refining words is negative because they think it is not useful in a conversation situation. In this study, we tried to point out that there was a problem with its meaning correspondence as to why refining words were not useful. meaning correspondence can be divided into Type1 and Type2. Type1 includes those in which refining words have a broader meaning than refining target words. Type2 includes those in which refining words have a narrower meaning than refining target words. Both Type1 and Type2 have the problem that they can not accurately communicate what the speaker wants to say in a conversation situation. Moreover, Type2 should be more prudent than Type1 in that it may mean a completely different meaning. We also talked about the phenomenon of using refining target words for sophistication or show-off, regardless of the meaning correspondence. This can be seen as a language external factor.
