ABSTRACT

YE YINGLIN, 2021. A Research on the Auxiliary Particle ‘-iRago(-(이)라고)’. Korean Semantics, 74. This paper aims to demonstrate the new semantical functions of auxiliary particle ‘-irago(-(이)라고)’. It turns out that auxiliary particle ‘-irago(-(이)라고)’ is probably the product of the fusion of ‘-rago(-라고)’ used in traditional indirect speech and ‘ida(이다)’ used in reference sentence. And auxiliary particle ‘-irago(-(이)라고)’ has been grammaticalized in spoken Korean. To classify the auxiliary particle ‘-irago(-(이)라고)’ from other usages, we came up with an approach to distinguishing the difference between ‘-irago(-(이)라고)’ with ‘cause presentation’ function. We found out that the latter one should be considered as a connective ending. Meanwhile, By means of Sejong Spoken Corpus, we analysed grammatical charateristics of auxiliary particle ‘-irago(-(이)라고)’ and its semantical charateristics as well. Results showed that it is highly possible that the auxiliary particle ‘-irago(-(이)라고)’ is connected with subject, object, adnominal phrase and subject term. Moreover, the auxiliary particle ‘-irago(-(이)라고)’ is constantly used in a neutrality context, performing a role as intensifier.
