Abstract:

This book aims to provide a key to the solution of difficult problems of
studies of Korean grammar which are concerned with linguistic phenomena,
while taking up concrete examples. In order to achieve this purpose, it
discusses methodology of studies in Korean grammar step by step.
Furthermore, it examines two angles of researches on grammatical phenomena
in the Korean language: (1) the application of foreign theories to the
phenomena (2) the self-creation of theories on the phenomena based on
traditional Korean linguistics.

This book emphasizes the following two things. First, it discusses
methodology of studies in Korean grammar according to three levels: (1) a
purpose of study, (2) an instrument of research, (3) research material.
Second, it examines the interpretation of results of these studies by means
of two levels: (1) theory, (2) unit.

Title: Towards a Theory of Morphopragmatics of Korean Connectives
Published: 2007
Publisher: Pagijong Press

Author: Chong-Hoon Chun
Hardback: ISBN: 9788978789608 Pages: 336 Price: U.S. $ 22.00
Abstract:

The main aim of this book is to gain a deep understanding of the meanings
of Korean conjunctive verbal suffixes from a pragmatic viewpoint, using
real, not constructed data. In order to attain the purpose, this book
conducts an in-depth analysis of the nature of the meanings, and the use,
of six Korean conjunctive verbal suffixes: -ko, -nuntey, -nikka, -se,
-ciman, and -to. The term 'the use' refers to the truth-functionality of
suffixes, i.e. whether they conjoin or disjoin the two propositions, which
are recovered from two segments, truth-functionally. The data are obtained
from 360 minutes of audio-taped Korean natural conversations. It adopts as
its reasoning tool four major pragmatic theories - Gricean theory,
neo-Gricean theory, Relevance Theory, and Default Semantics. However, it
does not use the data to compare the four theories. This book emphasizes
how to elucidate the meanings of Korean conjunctive verbal suffixes that
modern pragmatic theories cannot neatly explain.

In Chapter 1 previous approaches on the six suffixes are analysed. It is
pointed out that while these studies correctly equate the meanings of a
given suffix with propositional relations that obtain between the two
segments (linked by the suffix), they fail to see the importance of the use
of the suffix. Chapter 2 provides an overview of the four pragmatic
theories. The focus is on strengths and weaknesses of the four theories. In
Chapter 3, we introduce propositional relations and the notions of encoding
and inferred. What is meant by conjoining and disjoining truth-functionally
is also explained. Chapter 4 specifies the data. In Chapter 5,
propositional relations between two propositions which are recovered from
two conjoined segments are characterised. Chapter 6 applies the scope test
to meanings of the six suffixes and distinguishes encoded and inferred
meanings. It discusses encoded meanings of the six suffixes, which conjoin
the two propositions truth-functionally, and discusses inferred meanings of
only four of the six suffixes, which disjoin the two propositions
truth-functionally. In Chapter 7, we discuss the nature of the meanings of
the six suffixes from two theoretical angles, Relevance Theory and Default
Semantics, and in particular we argue against a unitary procedure
hypothesis. Chapter 8 concludes the book and also includes suggestions for
future studies.
