- This paper aims to elucidate how the semantic categories make changes according to the position of the Sino-Korean morphemes in the words. We dealt with the Sino-Korean whose morphemes are same but only different in the combinatorial order of them. And we focused on the meaning shift of the words which is covariant with the morpheme orders. Our findings are as follows. First, coordinate structure doesn"t make any meaning shifts except for some words. Second, Predicate+Complement structure preserve its original meaning because converse morpheme order fits well with Korean Adverb+Predicate structure. Third, Subject+Predicate structure and Modifier+Noun structure make many meaning changes. Fourth, the same morpheme can make difference in its category, especially among Adjective+Noun structure. Fifth, some morphemes such as "ko(故)" makes big difference in meaning according to their position in the word.
