Abstract: The aim of this thesis is to establish the principle of word formation in Korean, by investigating the component of grammar in which word fomation occurs and the procedure of it. For our investigation, we reexamined the affix system, regarded word formation as 'head-nonhead(sister) relation', and suggested the definition of word newly. On the base of these fundermantal notions, we suggested the principle of lexical, syntactic and phonological word formation newly.
