- Korean obstruents are devided into lenis(p), fortis (glottalized or tensed:p’), and aspirated(). The alternations between lenis and fortis and those between lenis and áspirated are often observed in given environments, and have been treated as one important subject in Korean phonology. The present paper deals with the fortis in two respects, descriptive and theoretical. In the descriptive point of view, some related data, which are commonly accepted by other phonologists, will be reexamined. And, in the theoretical point of view, 1 will try to show the phonological process in which the fortis is the geminate of lenis within the framework of Non-linear Phonology (McCarthy (1982), van der Hulst & Smith (1982), Dell & Vergnaud (1984), etc.).
