Akin, flee-Don & Cho, Sungeun 2012, On the Nature of Zero Realization of Arguments: A Reply to Lee (2011). Linguistic Research 29(1), 1-20. This paper aims to show how well Ahn & Cho`s (2009, 2010. 2011 b c) pro analysis accounts for various interpretations the null argument constructions have. By exploring the cases Lee (2011) points out, we show how far the possible interpretation of pro is stretched. More specifically, our analysis accounts for polarity mismatch examples without postulating additional device like partial feature copying. We further show that our pro analysis is conceptually as well as empirically superior to the DP ellipsis advocated in Lee (2011).

Gaol, Hye-Won, 2012, A Linear Regressional Analysis of Pith-Its in English, Linguistic Research 29(1), 21-44. Building up on Choi`s (2011) research that identifies the features of the instrument-taking predicates that influence the presence of instrument with-PPs, the current study explores to analyze the BYU-BNC corpus data of instrument with-PPs with a linear regression model. By building a multiple linear regression model which can deal with identified predictor variables simultaneously, this paper tries to explain the frequencies of instrument with-PPs and their nature of argumenthood by combinations of predictor variables. This modeling analysis can be a useful step toward studying gradient argumenthood via a more complex evaluation of a variety of morphological, syntactic, and semantic factors.

Kim, Jong-Bok 2012, On the Syntax of the It-Cleft Construction: A Construiction-based Perspective. Linguistic Research 29(l), 4548, The English it-cleft construction displays ambivalent structural properties: restrictive relative clause and non-relative clause properties. This paper reviews its main grammatical properties and then sketches a uniform analysis for different types of the construction. This direction departs from the traditional ternary analysis in which the copula takes two complements, focus and cleft clause. In this paper, we suggest that the copula be in the cleft, as in other canonical environments, projects a binary structure, forming a cleft construction, This way of viewing the it-cleft construction as forming an independent grammatical entity brings us several welcoming consequences.

Ko Heejeong & Oh, Funjeong, 2012, A Hybrid Approach to Floating Quantifiers: Sonic Experimental Evidence, Linguistic Research 29(1), 69-106+ The non-local dependency between a noun and its associate quantifier has been widely discussed. The details may differ, but the formal analyses of floating quantifiers can be divided into three schools of research. One is an adnominal approach, which argues that the noun and the quantifier are externally-merged together (at some point of the derivation), and that the noun has undergone lefiward movement in a later derivation (e.g. Kuroda 1983, Sportiche 1988, Ueda 1990, Boskovic 2004). Another is an adverbial approach, which claims that the quantifier modifies the event structure of the verb phrase, and that the noun and the quantifier are not related to each other by movement (e g Kayne 1975, Fukushima 1991, Bobaljik 1995, 2003, Brisson l998, Nakanish 2003, Kim and Yang 2006, Kim 2011). The other is a hybrid approach (e.g. Ishii 1998, Kang 2002, Ko 2005, 2007, Fitzpatrick 2006) which argues that some floating quantifiers are adnominals while some are adverbials. This paper evaluates the predictions and validity of the three approaches with new experimental data, and provides some evidence for the overall hybrid approach from on-line processing and off-line judgment data. At the conclusion of the paper, we also discuss remaining issues to solidify the hypotheses of the hybrid approach.

Sohn, Keun-Won, 2012, Apparent CP Deletion and LW Relatedness, Linguistic Research 29(1), 107-126. This paper deals with the apparent CP deletion phenomena in Korean discussed in Ahn & Cho (2009) first. Ahn & Cho claim that CP deletion is not allowed in Korean and the cases which seem to involve CP deletion are not really CP deletion constructions, but involve invisible pronoun pro. Although sharing the same view regarding the non-existence of real CP deletion, this paper deduces a different generalization from Ahn & Cho. According to Ahn & Cho, pro is allowed only when oven pronoun ku kes is allowed, regardless of whether there is a clausal DP counterpart of the apparently deleted CP or not. But this paper claims that there is a perfect parallelism between the occurrence of pro and the comparable clausal DP counterpart of the CP complement, This paper also provides an alternative analysis for the NP1 containing CP deletion cases, showing that deletion is possible in these cases only when the NPI and its licenser are both included in the deletion (or replacement) site.

On the Relation between Phonetics and Phonology

Chang Woohyeok. 2012, On the Relation between Phonetics and Phonology, Linguistic Research 29(1), 127-156. This study examines the nature of the relationship between phonology and phonetics and advocates a modular view in which there is a principled mapping between phonological representations and phonetic expressions. In particular, this modular view is advocated by Laboratory Phonology that can be characterized by two beliefs. First, it is believed that there should be a division between phonetics and phonology. Second, there should be a considerable interconnection between them. Contrary to this modular view, other approaches are somewhat radical in that abstract phonological features are not associated with phonetic facts and that phonetics and phonology are integrated into a single module which is all phonetic. In favor of the modular theory, I propose a principle about phonology-phonetics interface: unmarked items display a wider range of phonetic realization but cannot be realized in a more marked way than their marked counterparts, One representative evidence would be that the higher pitch value of a tone compared with other tones has to be a phonological high tone rather than a low tone. Further discussions about phonology-phonetics interface are done with regard to speech perception and production. It is shown that perception and production data are valid when they are used as phonetic evidence to resolve phonological controversies. On the other hand, the P-map hypothesis seems invalid when dealing with some cases where speech production and perception do not match.

The Implications of Choosing a Type of Quantitative Analysis in Interlanguage Research

Lee, Junkyu, 2012, the Implications of Choosing a Type of Quantitative Analysis in Interlanguage Research. Linguistic Research 29(1), 157-172. Much interlanguage research has contributed to LI and L2 theoretical literature through empirical testing and validating theoretical constructs. Quantitative methods have been widely employed as a useful apparatus for L2 empirical research, Yet, only a limited range of quantitative methods such as mean comparison methods have actually been applied, at least in the domain of formal approach to interlanguage, By testing the Unaccusative Hypothesis in relation to derivational morphology, this study investigates how exploratory statistical techniques would complement the mean comparison methods. Particularly, the knowledge of split intransitivity of native and non-native speakers was explored independently, without the predetermination of verb classes. This study illustrated that comparative quantitative analyses are inherently unable to (I) show how LI and L2 data can be used to test linguistic hypotheses and to (2) explain precisely what interlanguage itself looks like. This paper emphasizes the incorporation of exploratory statistical analyses such as cluster analysis into interlanguage research, complementing the widely-used comparison analyses and therefore, contributing to the understanding of theoretical constructs and bringing a broader picture of the status of interlanguage.

Verbal Suffix-Repetition Constructions in Korean: A Constraint-and Construction-based Approach

Cho, Sae-Youn & Ku Na-Hyun 2012, Verbal Suffix-Repetition Constructions in Korean: A Constraint-and Construction-based Approach. Linguistic Research 29(1), 173-195. There are various Verbal Suffix-Repetition (VSR) constructions in Korean, where suffixes such as-na1 tun(ci)/ tun(ka) are attached to the repeated verbs. Calling the VSR Choice-denying Repeated Verbs construction, Lee (2011) claims that the following verb of the VSR, which can he replaced with ma!-, should contain a negative but the preceding verb should be affirmative in the VSR construction which disallows any NPI within it. Unlike Lee (2011), we claim that the verbs in the VSR can freely occur either in the preceding position or in the following one regardless of their Neg value so long as they share the same verbal suffix forms such as -tun(ka). Furthermore, NPIs may occur within the VSR construction if they occur with a negative predicate within the same clause. To implement the findings above into HPSG, we have proposed the two lexical entries for mal-, the VSR Construction Rule, and the NPI Clause-mate Constraint. These tools enable us to account for the idiosyncratic properties of the VSR constructions under this constraint- and construction-based approach.

Im, Chegyong. 2012. Double Subject Constructions in Korean: A Purely Derivational 3D Merge Approach. Linguistic Research 29(1), 197-215. In this paper, we try to provide theoretical evidences for the structure of DSCs suggested in Im (2002) and Tm (2009), adopting and adapting the derivational approaches including Starke (2001) and Suranyi (2006). We argue against the multiple agree approach and movement approach outlining their theoretical and empirical problems. Then, we will show that the Natural Relation suggested in (lrohmann (2003) and the purely derivational approach in Suranyi (2006) support my argument that NP2 is the subject of the constructions and that the sequence of functional projections (FSeq) suggested in Starke (2001) resolves the concatenation of the constructions, The most advantageous thing is that Merge of NPT as Topic/Focus can be explained in 3D Merge hypothesis suggested in Boeckx (2008), and In (2002, 2004, 2005a, 2005b, 2006a, 2006b, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011).

A Predicate Inversion Analysis of Kukes in Korean "Sluicing"

Kim, Siin-Woong, 2012, A Predicate Inversion Analysis of Kukes in Korean "Sluicing". Linguistic Research 29(1), 2 17-233. There has been a great amount of work regarding the identity of "sluicing" in Korean. Two major claims are the (pseudo)cleft analysis and the movement-cum-deletion analysis. The former claims the Korean "sluicing" is derived from a kind of cleft clause, while the latter claims it is derived in terms of movement and the subsequent deletion of the remnant clause. This paper is a piece of support to the cleft (or pseudocleft) analysis of Korean "sluicing" in contrast to the movement-cum-deletion analysis. Differently from the previous analyses, however, this paper claims that the optional presence of kukes in "sluicing" is actually an argument in Spec-TP, which has originated as the predicate of the embedded small clause. This is in line with the predicate inversion analysis of English pseudoclefts (Moro 1997, den Dikken 2008). The proposed analysis turns out to be effective in explaining the connectivity in "sluicing" in the same way as clefts in Korean.
