- Many studies have been done for the topic/subject particles ‘-nun/-ka’. However, there is still great confusion in the usage of the two particles, especially in a ‘double subject' sentence. This paper suggests that the problem could be solved by a paradigm based on a mathematical paradigm that shows the relationship of the degree of markedness. A comprehensive text analysis is done to test the paradigm and to determine the distribution pattern of ‘-nun’ and ‘-ka’ for topic and subject. The explanatory and predictive power of the mathematical paradigm is supported by the text analysis.
