introduction to korean linguistics

An Introduction to Korean Linguistics (Routledge, 2015) is a valuable and comprehensive text for those with an interest in Korean linguistics. This book provides an in-depth introduction to the basics of Korean linguistics, and modern linguistic theory, in an accessible style. It features a step-by-step approach designed to lead the reader through the linguistic make-up of the language, from the basics of its sound system and sentence structure to the semantics of modern spoken Korean. Korean is an invaluable language for the study of theoretical and comparative linguistics as it provides important examples and counter-examples to key issues, making An Introduction to Korean Linguistics an essential text for students and professional linguists alike.

book cover

Korean Tense and Aspect in Narrative Discourse (Eastern Art Publishing, 2013) argues for a discourse-based treatment of the temporal and aspectual categories in Korean through the quantitative analysis of corpus data, providing a systematic semantic analysis of those categories using a dynamic semantic tool, Discourse Representation Theory (Kamp and Reyle, 1993; van Eijck and Kamp, 1997). It represents the first formal discourse-level analysis of the Korean tense and aspect system and makes a valuable contribution not only to the study of Korean linguistics but also to the general linguistics of temporal semantics. In addition to her analysis of tense and aspect, Dr Lee also examines the current research methods of dynamic semantics and the contemporary issues at the forefront of natural language semantics.
