TitleLexicographical treatment of the Korean verb mandul- ‘to make’
AbstractThe Korean verb mandul- 'to mаke' is listed, apparently arbitrarily, either as one entry or two entries in Korean dictionaries. This paper provides various syntactic and semantic evidence to claim that the verb mandul- should be treated as two different homonyms. It also suggests that the same principle applies to many other Korean verbs. The ultimate purpose of this paper is to provide an answer to the question, "On what grounds can a verb with more than one meaning be split into homonyms?"
