- In the theory of Generative Lexicon, polysemy is not handled by the sense enumeration method, the traditional means of description in lexicography. Instead, it uses various generative mechanisms such as cocomposition, type coercion, and selective binding. Such generative devices operate on rich lexical representations incorporating event structure, argument structure and qualia structure. After reviewing those mechanisms with many Korean examples, I extend the generative lexicon analysis to Korea verbs of transaction, sada (to buy") and palda (to sell"). Only those senses which are regularly, or productively related will be targets of unified description.
