Park, Hyunjung. “The New Perspective on the Syntactic Status of Demonstratives in Korean Nominal Phrases.” Studies in English Language & Literature 49.4 (2023): 227-248. This paper discusses the intriguing syntactic property concerning the distribution of demonstratives as the prenominal element in Korean nominal phrases. More specifically, this study proposes that Korean demonstratives show the identical distributional behavior with DP-modifiers inflected by suffix -n when they modify the head noun within noun phrases: the flexibility in word order. Basically following Park (2019), the current study represents the novel syntactic structure that the demonstrative is realized as the DP-modifier in Korean on the basis of a variety of empirical evidence and the relevant discussion. The proposed structure in this study also has significant implications in that the demonstrative does not need to occur in the left-most position in Korean unlike English and that the demonstrative and the pronoun, which belong to Determiner, appear together syntactically. The current analysis shows the new perspective that Korean demonstratives result in being the DP-modifier syntactically. (Songwon University)
