dc.description.abstractThis paper discusses the distributional characteristics and discourse
functions of the verbal affix -nuntey in Korean conversation. Upon the assumption
that grammar is shaped through an interaction of speaker and
hearer in the process of achieving communicative goals, I characterize the
properties of -nuntey through an examination of discourse contexts where
-nuntey is used. The analysis of the present conversational discourse
shows that at a macro-level the main function of -nuntey is to provide a
ground for the discourse that follows the -nuntey clause. This research
also shows that at a micro-level -nuntey has the following four major
functions: (i) a background-establishing function, (ii) an introductory function,
(iii) an explanatory function, and (iv) a 'speech act' signaling function.
When -nuntey is used as a turn-terminal affix, one of the main functions
of -nuntey is to ask the addressee to provide new information or
addressee's assessment/opinion about the information provided by the
speaker. In this respect, -nuntey is one of the most typical markers of cooperation
between speaker and hearer. Furthermore, this research shows
that -nuntey is undergoing a process of grammaticalization in the sense
that the clausal connective -nuntey is being shaped into a 'sentence-terminal'
affix through an interaction of speaker's strategies, communicative
goals, and the functional factors involved in the flow of information.
