- This artic1e focuses on the structure of verb stem + verb stem' among the various ways of structuring the compound-verb. The topic itself originates from a questioning of the conventional idea that the structure is a productive way to form of the compound-verb. This artic1e assumes that the compound-verb should be a new verb in syntax and in semantics. It provides a list of the examples of verb stem + verb stem' structure at the sentence level. To identify the pure compound-verb, it suggests such conditions as: meaning reflection condition, impossibility of the elipsis of the structural element, formation of new meaning, and single-verb condition. In this process, 1 found the various modes of the verb stem + verb stem' structure. A1so, 1 found that many of the structure have adverb, affix or assistant verb as its pre- or post-element, and that the case of the conjunctive sentence shows the structure. If we focus only on the formation process, these various cases would be identified as the same. However, if we focus on the function of the verb, we can find the pure compound-verb. When we made the sentence a subject of the research, we found that in spite of the same form with the same structural elements, sometimes it functions as phrase and sometimes as compound-verb according to the usage in the sentence. Even though verb stem + -6 + verb stem' was not a main interest of this artic1e, we attempted to define the usage difference by comparing the verb stem + verb stem' structure
with the same pre- or post-elements.
