Abstract
Research in Korean phonology has been unusually productive,
both within the structuralist tradition and in the generative
framework. On the structural side, Martin's phonemics and
morphophonemics laid structural groundwork for later generative
studies while instrumental works provided a valuable phonetic
grounding for phonological analyses to come. Earlier generative
studies were mainly concerned with such issues as features,
segments and rules, following the program developed in the Sound
Pattern of English. The late 1970's saw the emergence of
Autosegmental Theory. Many traditional analyses were revisited
and given new interpretations. Recent works on consonantal
phonology also attempt to move beyond description and toward
explanation by maXlITllzmg representational apparatus and
minimizing language-specific rules. The development of Lexical
Phonology and Prosodic Hierarchy Theory in the 1980's was
triggered by an interest in rule domains and in the interface
between phonology and morphology/syntax. Many studies contributed
to the prosodic characterization of morphological categories and the
formal representation of domains. Most recently, Optimality Theory
promises to solve some of the thorny issues of Korean phonology
such as the n- tP alternation, Consonant Cluster Simplification and
Glide Formation, Palatalization, Umlaut, Tensification and Korean
phrasing.
