ABSTRACT

This paper investigates the frequency and distribution of the word ‘frame’ in Korean as a semantic neologism which has been in use for the last 30 years and further examines the collocations and semantic prosody of the word. The data used for this study consists of online news articles spanning from 1990 to 2018 and compiled into two corpora (Naver News Corpus and Chosun·Dong-A News Corpus), which have been time-sliced in order to perform a time series analysis. Chapter 2 presents the methodology of web scraping corpus and discusses the issues related to semantic neology in terms of extraction and identification. Chapter 3 carries out a quantitative and qualitative analysis of ‘frame’ from the perspective of corpus linguistics. The results show that the word ‘frame’ in Korean first appeared in the Naver News Corpus in 2001 and its frequency dramatically increased in 2007, 2012 and 2017, which correspond to the Korean presidential election campaigns. In addition, the analysis of the collocates of ‘frame' within a ±3 window shows that the term mostly has a negative prosody.
