Abstract
VerbaI suffix -nun, which folIows the sententiaI endings -ta -nyα, -ca, and
-la, has long been argued to be a complementizer Iicensed in CPs which are governed by N (Yoon 1990 and Jung 1992, among others). Lim (1995), however, suggests a possibility that the verbal suffix -nun is not a complementizer but a case marker. In this paper, 1 propose that the verbal suffix - nun categorially belongs to COMP and realizes genitive Case assigned to CP. Specifically, 1 argue that -nun is the genitive complementizer, compared to the genitive determiner -uy, under the assumption that Case may be realized as a nominal suffix when assign어. to DPs and as a verbal suffixes when assigned to CPs. Under this analysis, the inflectional suffixes -uy and -nun share the feature [ +GenJ and are distinguished in terms of their categorial features, that is, the former is [+N, -VJ and the latter [-N, +VJ. A convincing piece of evidence for the analysis of -nun as a genitive complementizer comes from the fact that -nun is licensed in exactly the same configuration as -uy. Both -nun and -uy are licensed only in the projections
which are governed by N. The analysis of -nun as a genitive marker is also evidenced by the fact that -nun is interchangeable with -uy in interrogative clauses' Further, the fact that a genitive suffix -λ historically developed into -nun also supports the analysis of -nun as the realization of genitives. Further research is required on the status of other inflectional suffixes which are licensed by N.
