ABSTRACT

In this study, we classify the types of shell nouns and examine their usage patterns. To this end, we reveal the concepts and properties of quoted nouns and their phrases, and list the range of shell nouns from typical to nontypical. A typical shell noun belongs to the meaning area of utterance or reason, and takes the citation clause as a substitute. Quasi-quoted nouns do not have an area of meaning for utterance or reason. We believe that dependent nouns, indicative pronouns, and ‘것’ nominalization constructions have no specific lexical meaning, but can be included in non-typical shell nouns because they share the property of taking citations as interpolation. Shell nouns objectify the cited clause and make it easy to categorize. The lexical noun categorizes the citation clause, indicating the speaker’s attitude. The dependent noun indicates that the derivative is similar to the derivative clause. The indicative pronoun ‘이것’ indicates that the content of the citation clause is a reinterpretation of the original utterance by the speaker.
