10 03 1. A new word may be formed from an existing word by subtracting an affix which is thought to be part of the old word; that is, ignorance sometimes can be creative. Thus, peddle, was derived from peddler on the mistaken assumption that -er was the agentive suffix. Such a word is called a(n) ( ). The verbs hawk, stoke, swindle, and edit all came into the language by this word-formation process. back-formation 2. One characteristic of many pairs of ( ) antonyms is that one is marked and the other unmarked. The unmarked member is the one used in questions of degree. We ask, How high is it? (not How low is it? ) or How tall is she? We answer One thousand feet high or Five feet tall but never Five feet short, except humorously. High and tall are the unmarked members of high/low and tall/short. gradable 3. Some speakers of English substitute a glottal stop for the [t] at the end of words such as don t or can t or in the middle of words like bottle or button. The substitution of the glottal stop does not change the meaning; [d nt] and [d n ] do not contrast in meaning, nor do [batl] and [ba l]. A glottal stop is therefore not a phoneme in English since it is not a distinctive sound. These sounds [t] and [ ] are in ( ) ( ) in these words. free variation 360 VISION

In English, aspirated voiceless stops occur at the beginning of a stressed syllable, as in pie and appear, but unaspirated voiceless stops are produced when preceded by [s] as in spy and spat. If [p] is pronounced instead of [p h ] in pie, it does not make a difference in meaning since these two phonetically different sounds count as the same thing in English. That is, though they are phonetically distinct, they belong to the same mental representation and correspond to a single mental category, which is phonologically referred to as a (1). The two stops, [p h ] and [p], are allophones of / (2) /. (1) (2) / / (1) phoneme (2) /p/ 378 VISION

29 English Linguistics 23. The position of a tonic accent is closely connected with information type. A focused constituent usually receives the tonic accent, while a non-focused constituent, which is understood to be old information or is presupposed, is unaccented. Consider the following sentence: Peter met Jennifer in his office, too. The meaning of too is to indicate that what has been said previously with the use of one word or term applies as well with the use of another word of the same form-class. For example, if Jennifer and too are accented in this sentence (/Peter met Jennifer in his office, //too./), it is presupposed that Peter met some other person in his office and the presupposed part is unaccented. Thus, the sentence means that Peter met Jennifer as well as some other person. /Peter met Jennifer in his office, // too./ Peter as well as some other person met Jennifer in his office. Appendix

33 English Linguistics 23. The plural suffix -s is pronounced as [ z] in words like buses, bushes, benches, mazes, rouges, and garages. These words end with the consonants [s, z, +,,, t+, d,]. These sounds differ with respect to voicing as well as place and manner of articulation. That is, they do not share any articulatory feature. They do, however, have an auditory property in common: they all have a high-pitched hissing sound quality. The high-pitched hissing sound quality is described by using the feature, sibilant. These sounds form the natural class of sibilant consonants in English. Using this feature makes it possible to state a generalization. If we state that [ z] occurs in six different situations, we treat the six consonants as if they were a random collection of sounds with no relation to each other. By referring to the natural class, however, we can state the generalization like this :. The plural suffix -s is pronounced as [ z] after the sibilants. Appendix

37 English Linguistics 11. A characteristic of all human languages is the potential to create new words. The categories of noun, verb, adjective, and adverb are open in the sense that new members are constantly being added. One of the most common types of formation is derivation, which creates new words from already existing morphemes. Derivation is the process by which a new word is built from a base, usually through the addition of an affix. However, derivation does not always apply freely to the members of a given category. Sometimes, for instance, a particular derivational affix is able to attach only to stems with particular phonological properties. A good example of this involves the English suffix - en, which combines with adjectives to create verbs with a causative meaning. However, there are many adjectives with which -en cannot combine, since the suffix -en is subject to a phonological constraint. In particular, it can only combine with a monosyllabic stem that ends in an obstruent. abstracten olden quicken greenen liven bluen louden stouten : abstracten, bluen, greenen Appendix

40 03 5. Words with more than one affix are formed by means of several steps. For example, consider the word unusable, which is composed of a prefix un-, a stem use, and a suffix -able. The prefix un-, meaning not, attaches only to adjectives and creates new words that are also adjectives such as unkind. The suffix -able, on the other hand, attaches to verbs and forms adjectives such as countable. Since un- cannot attach to use, the suffix -able attaches first to the stem use, creating usable. The prefix un- is then allowed to combine with usable to form unusable. Now consider the word reusable, in which the prefix re- attaching only to verbs is used. Our understanding of how the affixes combine with other morphemes enables us to state the formation of reusable as a two-step process whereby (1) attaches to (2) first, and then (3) is added to (4). (1) (2) (3) (4) (1) re (2) use (3) able (4) reuse 390 VISION

41 English Linguistics 6. The meanings of words change over time. There are some general directions in which word meanings change. They may undergo extensions in meaning when their denotation covers more than it did. For example, the word barn used to denote a storage place for barley but its denotation generalized to cover any kind of farm-based storage shed. Semantic reductions, on the other hand, occur when the denotation of a word shrinks. The word starve used to denote dying in general but now denotes dying of hunger. The connotations of words can also change. Degradations in meaning occur when a word acquires a worse connotation, while semantic elevations come about when a word takes on somewhat grander connotations over time. Lewd started out meaning those who were lay people as opposed to clergy. It then narrowed to mean those who were ignorant, and from there narrowed to obscene. Chivalrous, by contrast, was at one time synonymous with warlike; it now refers to more refined properties such as fairness, generosity, and honor.

(4) Jane tried to talk with the Dean, but she couldn t talk with him. Sentence (3) is contradictory in meaning, but sentence (4) is not. The reason for the contradiction is that the first clause implies that the complement proposition (i.e., Jane s talking with the Dean) is true, but the second clause denies it. managed to do do.

43 English Linguistics 11. Words that contain salient information in a sentence are called content words. They include nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs. The less prominent words in a sentence are called function words. Examples of function words are pronouns, articles, prepositions, and conjunctions. In connected speech, function words are pronounced differently than when they are spoken in isolation. Here are some examples: Written Form Spoken Form Tom watched her last night. ['t m 'w t t r 'læst 'nayt] A cup of tea. [ 'k<p 'tiy] Give them a break. ['g v m 'breyk] Now and then. ['naw n '"n] (1) (2) (3) (4) (1). (her, them) (2). (of)(and) (3) (schwa).

44 03 Consider the underlined noun phrases below: (1) a. Mr. Smith is a teacher of children. b. Mr. Smith is a teacher from America. (2) Mr. Smith is a teacher of children from America. The noun phrase in (2), which is a combination of (1a) and (1b), is ambiguous. The phrase from America modifies either the head teacher or the head children. Thus, the ambiguity results from the possible modification of either head by the phrase from America. However, with the intended meaning Mr. Smith teaches children and he is from America, sentence (3) is ungrammatical: (3) *Mr. Smith is a teacher from America of children. The notions of complement and adjunct can be used to explain the ungrammaticality of (3). A complement is a phrase required by the head while an adjunct is its optional modifier; from America is an adjunct of the head teacher and of children, its complement. The noun phrase in (3) is ungrammatical since it does not satisfy the structural requirement that the (A) should come closer to the head than the (B) does. 21. (A) (B) (A) complement, (B) adjunct 22.

45 English Linguistics 1. Middle English short a, [a], was now a fronted sound [æ]; long i, [i] had become a dipthong, culminating in our current () ; long u, [u] had dipthongnized too, ultimately culminating in our current pronunciation [au] these and other vowel changes, commonly called the (), act as boundary marker between Middle English and Modern English.

(A) Korean students often struggle with trying to pronounce English words such as eat and it the way native speakers of English do. Fortunately, even if they mispronounce such words, people understand, since the context makes it clear which word they have said : Still some native speakers of English have trouble in understanding them when they mispronounce the word live as they pronounce the word leave or vice versa. (B) In some languages there are vowels that differ phonetically from each other only by duration. That is neither height of the tongue nor tenseness distinguishes the vowel from its counterpart in pairs of words which have a contrast in meaning. It is customary to transcribe this difference either by doubling the symbol or by the use of a diachronic colon after the segment, as for example [aa] or [a]. Since English long vowels differ qualitatively from their paired short vowels, Americans use different symbols to distinguish them. Appendix

46 03 counterpart (length), (quality). 3. Many pronunciation teachers would claim that a learner s command of segmental features is less crucial to communicative competence than a command of suprasegmental features, since the suprasegmentals carry more of the overall meaning than do the segmentals. To better understand this point of view, imagine a native speaker of English engaged in conversation with an adult learner. The learner is discussing an incident in which her child had choked on something and could not breathe. He swallowed a pill, she says. What kind of peel? asks the native speaker. An aspirin, says the woman. Oh, a pill! I thought you said peel, responds the native speaker. Such incidents in native-nonnative speaker conversation involving mispronunciation of segmental sound usually lead to minor repairable misunderstandings. With suprasegmentals and connected speech, however, the misunderstanding is apt to be of a more serious nature. Learners who use incorrect rhythm patterns or who do not connect words together are, at best, frustrating to a native-speaking listener; more seriously, if these learners use improper intonation contours they can be perceived as abrupt, or even rude; and if the stress and rhythm patterns are too non-nativelike, the speakers who produce them may not be understood at all.,. 396 VISION

47 English Linguistics (Major sentence stress) Grammarians sometimes divide all words into two classes : (1) content wordswhich have meaning in themselves, like mother, forget and tomorrow ; and (2) function words which have little or no meaning other than the grammatical idea they express, such as the, of, and will. In general content words are stressed, but function words are left unstressed, unless the speaker wishes to call special attention to them. Content words, usually stressed, include Nouns, Verbs, Adjectives, Adverbs, Demonstratives, Interrogatives. Function words, usually unstressed, include Articles, Prepositions, Pronouns, Possessive adjectives, Relative pronouns, Conjunctions, Pro-form one, Auxiliaries. While all content words receive sentence stress, one content word within a particular sentence will receive greater stress than all the others. We refer to this as the major sentence stress. In most cases the major sentence stress falls on the last content word within a sentence. () Content words are stressed in a sentence; function words are not stressed. () :,. 4.

It is often enough for a speaker to just hint at a certain piece of information ; the addressee will interpret that information as relevant to the ongoing interaction and will infer the speaker s intention. This facilitates processing for the listener. It is probably also does so for the speaker. Speakers manage to select just the relevant information for expression. A blatant failure to respect a conversational maxim can convey some intention in a marked way. Here is an example of such exploitation: Arnold and Betty jointly attend a harpsichord performance. When it is over, the following conversation ensues. Arnold: How did you like it? Betty: It was a nice piano recital. Betty s answer violates the maxim of quality, since she knows perfectly well that the instrument was a harpsichord. This is in fact mutually known. Arnold therefore infers that Betty is flouting a maxim, and, on the assumption that Betty is cooperative, Arnold will try to find out what Betty intended to convey. The most likely interpretation here is that the performer played the harpsichord as if it were a piano- i.e., without real feel for the instrument. A less likely but possible interpretation is that the harpsichord was such an awful make that it sounded like a piano. Which interpretation. There is no standard or conversational way to infer the intention in this case of flouting a maxim. A speaker who exploits a maxim, for instance, to produce Appendix

50 03 irony, as in the above example, must estimate whether enough contextual conditions are fulfilled in order for the addressed interlocutor to make the inference. It should further be noticed that Betty s remark does not convey the same information that would have been conveyed if she had said The performer played without real feel for the instrument. That would not have been ironical; the breaking of the maxim creates the special effect of irony. Arnold the mutually context depends infer from will Betty s answer upon known Arnold will infer from Betty s answer depends upon the mutually known context. 7.

There is nearly equal time between the sentence stress. Stressed syllables will tend to occur at relatively regular intervals. Times from each stressed syllables to the next will tend to be the same, irrespective of the number of intervening unstressed syllables. To express the notion of such rhythm, the foot is used as a unit of rhythm. The foot begins with a stressed syllable and includes all following unstressed syllables up to (but not including) the following stressed syllable.

Words such as (1), in which the nasal sound comes after stops or fricatives, show that the nasals are syllabic. But we can t say that nasals become syllabic whenever they occur at the end of a word after a consonant. Words such as (2), in which the nasal sound comes after a sonorant consonant, show that the nasals are not syllabic. Therefore, the key issue here appears to be the manner of articulation of the consonant preceding the nasal sound at the end of a word.

The outcome of this assimilation is a third distinct segment which combines properties of the two assimilating segments. In careful speech, for example, could you would be realized as [kωd ju:]; but in normal conversation it is more likely to be realized as [kωd, ]. In the example, the alveolar stop [d] and following palatal approximant [j] fuse to give the voiced post-alveolar affricate[d,]. The voice, place, and manner of articulation of the two input segments are combined to form a third segment. 404 VISION

But, can it take a non-finite clause complement? (3) It is likely [that Bill is taller than him]. (4) It is likely [Bill to be taller than him]. (5) Bill is likely [to be taller than him].

The difference between formaland informaluses is best seen as a scale, rather than as a simple yes or no distinction. Consider the following example. (1) There are many selfish people with whom one would hesitate to converse. Sentence (1) is towards the formal end of the scale for a number of reasons: Use of there are, which (unlike the less formal there s) maintains the plural con cord with many selfish people as subject. Use of many selfish people itself, rather than the more informal a lot of selfish people or lots of selfish people. Appendix

62 03 Use of the initial preposition to introduce a relative clause (with whom), rather than a construction with a final preposition whom... with. Use of whom, which is itself a rather formal pronoun compared with who. Use of the generic personal pronoun one, rather than the more informal use of generic you. If we replaced all these features of (1) by informal equivalents, the sentence would run as in (2). (2) you would hesitate to. However, it is significant that this sentence seems very unidiomatic. The reason is that a translation from one variety to another cannot be treated as a mechanical exercise. In practice, informal English prefers its own typical features, which include, for example, contracted forms of verbs (there s rather than there is, etc.), omission of the relative pronoun who/whom/that, and informal vocabulary rather than more formal vocabulary such as converse. As an example of informal English, (3) is a more natural-sounding sentence than (2). (3) There s However, we could make more lexical changes to increase or decrease the formality of this sentence. For example, replacing people by guys would make the sentence even more informal: (4) There s 412 VISION

English has a set of principles or rules which allow native speakers to assign stress to the appropriate syllable of a word. The unit of a syllable may contain as its core a long vowel or a short vowel, a monophthong or a diphthong, or one or multiple consonants before or after the core. Consider the following two-syllable verbs : ballot exclude attract annoy divde abstract enter delight incline salute contain feature protest portion signal We can see that the stress may fall on either the first or the second syllable. Since stress placement rules usually apply to the final syllable first, compare the underlined rhyme sections of the stressed second syllables with the rhymes of the unstressed counterparts. We notice that the final syllable is stressed when it contains,, or in its rhyme section. That is, the final syllable is stressed when its rhyme is heavy in a sence. Answers : a long vowel a diphthong multiple consonants Appendix

64 Suppose that I am an American soldier in the Second World War and that I am captured by Italian troops. And suppose also that I wish to get these troops to believe that I am a German officer in order to get them to release me. What I would like to do is to tell them in German or Italian that I am a German officer. But let us suppose I don t know enough German or Italian to do that. So I, as it were, attempt to put on a show of telling them that I am a German officer by reciting those few bits of German that I know, trusting that they dont know enough German to see through my plan. Let us suppose I know only one line of German, which I remember from a poem I had to memorize in a high-school German course. Therefore I, a captured American, address my Italian captors with the following sentence : Kennst du das Land, wo die Zitromen blühen? In saying this sentence, I intend my captors to believe that what I mean is I am a German officer, and I intend to produce this effect by means of their recognition of my intention. Nonetheless, the words I utter mean Do you know the land where the lemon trees bloom? An utterance act is simply an act of uttering sounds, syllables, words, phrases, and sentences from a language. A locutionary act is an act of saying the propositional content of an utterance, while an illocutionary act is characterized as an act performed in saying something.

65 English Linguistics 6. Intonation in Questions functions to differentiate normal information from contrastive or expressive intentions. In other words, intonation performs an important conversation management function, with the speaker being able to subtly signal to the interlocutor to respond in a particular fashion, or to pay particular attention to a piece of highlighted information. There are two syntactic options for making yes/no Questions. The first option, which is general or unmarked, involves the inversion of the subject and the auxiliary verb, as in (1). (1) Did Tom cook DINner? This unmarked option is accompanied by rising intonation. In this pattern, the speaker is asking about the truth of what he or she is saying. The second option, which is less general or marked, takes the form of a statement with no subject-auxiliary inversion, as in (2). (2) Tom cooked DINner? In this marked pattern with rising intonation. the speaker is either asking the interlocutor to repeat or is making an assumption and wants the interlocutor to confirm it (i.e., the speaker has good reason to expect a yes answer). Another prosodic pattern for the uninverted guestion has emphatic stress, high pitch, and exaggerated intonation on one or two of the constituents that lend themselves to focus, as in (3). (3) TOM cooked DINner? In this pattern, the speaker is reacting with surprise or disbelief to certain information just received. For learners of English, it does not make sense to practice the unmarked and marked versions of Tom cooked dinner in isolation and out of context. Appendix

67 English Linguistics 13. Depth of word knowledge refers to a learner s knowledge of the different aspects of a given word. This knowledge has to do with extent of knowledge of the following categories: pronunciation and orthography; morphological properties; syntactic properties and collocations; ( ) including connotations, polysemy, antonvmy, and synonymy; register: and frequency. A key concept in this notion of vocabulary depth is that as the word is known in a deeper manner, then the more words that are associated with that word are also known. It is also congruent with the view that lexical depth is incremental and there are degrees of word knowing. Knowledge of vocabulary is multidimensional, encompassing various types of knowledge. The relationships between words are connected on different dimensions. Words may be related thematically (book- journal- manuscript), phonologically ( ), morphologically (indemnification- notification- intensification), conceptually ( ), and sociolinguistically ( ) among others. The number of relations that are established between words is in part a function of the number of exposures to a word providing a variety of information about the item. Understanding the richness of these connections represents the depth of knowledge of a particular word.

The problem posed by indirect speech acts is the problem of how it is possible for the speaker to say one thing and mean that but also to mean something else. The problem is made more complicated by the fact that some sentences seem almost to be conventionally used as indirect requests.

72 The rules of word stress placement in English are complex and have exceptions, but some information such as the grammatical category of the word, the number of syllables the word has, and the phonological structure of those syllables is important in stress placement. Consider the following stress placement rules: (1) In three-syllable verbs, if the final syllable is strong, then it is stressed; if the final syllable is weak, then it is unstressed, and stress is placed on the preceding syllable if that syllable is strong. (2) In three-syllable nouns, if the final syllable is weak, or ends with [ ], then it is unstressed; if the syllable preceding this final syllable is strong, then that middle syllable stressed; if the second and third syllables are both weak, then the first syllable is stressed. Note: A strong syllable has a rhyme which either has a syllable peak which is a long vowel or diphthong, or a vowel followed by a coda (i.e., one or more consonants). Weak syllables have a syllable peak which is a short vowel, and no coda unless the syllable peak is[ ].

Using only three rules, this theory accounts for the distinction between adjuncts, complements, and specifiers. (1) a. Specifier rule : XP (YP) X b. Adjunct rule : XX (ZP) or X(ZP) X c. Complement rule : X X (WP) X is a head, WP is a complement. ZP is an adjunct, and YP is a specifier. Let us think, here, about differences between the complement and adjunct rules. Because the complement rule introduces the head, the complement will always be adjacent to the head. Or more particularly, it will always be closer to the head than an adjunct. This is seen in the following tree: (2) NP D the N N PP N book PP of poems with a red cover Appendix

74 03 Since the adjunct rule takes an X level category and generates another X category, it will always be higher in the tree than the output of the complement rule.

75 English Linguistics 17. All languages modify complicated sequences in connected speech in order to simplify the articulation process. The main function of most of the adjustments in English is to promote the regularity of English rhythm-that is, to squeeze syllables between stressed elements and facilitate their articulation so that regular timing can be maintained. Specifically, the following optional phonological processes frequently occur in connected speech in North American English: (1) Alveolar stops are assimilated in place of articulation to following bilabial or velar stops across word boundaries. (2) Oral alveolar stops are pronounced as a flap after a stressed vowel and before an unstressed vowel. (3) Oral alveolar stops are deleted if they are central in a sequence of three consonants.

76 A word is not a simple sequence of morphemes. It has an internal structure. For example, the word unsystematic is composed of three morphemes: un-, system, and -atic. The root is system, a noun, to which we add the suffix -atic resulting in an adjective, systematic. To this adjective, we add the prefix unforming a new adjective, unsystematic. The hierarchical organization of words is most clearly shown by structurally ambiguous words. Consider the word unbuttonable. The two meanings of the word correspond to different structures, as follows: (1) Adjective (2) Adjective un ( ) ( ) able ( ) able un ( ) button button The ambiguity of this word arises because the prefix un- can combine with different grammatical categories. adjective, verb : not able to be buttoned verb, verb : able to be unbuttoned 426 VISION

77 English Linguistics 19. Adopting the concepts of traditional grammar, we can say that subjects of finite clauses have Nominative Case and that NPs that are complements of prepositions or verbs appear in the Accusative. Let us postulate that there is a universal requirement that all overt NPs must be assigned abstract Case to satisfy the Case filter. (1) Case Filter Every overt NP must be assigned abstract Case. To pass the Case filter NPs must be assigned Case by Case assigners such as a finite Tense, a transitive verb, a preposition, or a prepositional complementizer for. (The prepositional complementizer can appear in the infinitival clause to assign Accusative Case, since infinitival to can t assign Case to the overt subject of an infinitival clause.) (2) a. He likes her. b. She moved toward him. c. For her to like him is surprising. (a) It is likely Mary to be innocent. (b) I persuaded him to go to college. (c) She believes sincerely that he is smart. (d) I don t know whether John to go to the party. (e) She seems to me to be intelligent. (a), (d) Mary John Appendix

78 To a large extent, the acquisition of negative sentences by second language learners follows a path that looks nearly identical to the stages for first language acquisition. What is different, however, is that second language learners from different first language backgrounds behave somewhat differently within those stages. In the first stage, the negative element (usually no or not ) is typically placed before the verb or the element being negated. Often, it occurs as the first word in the utterance because the subject of the sentence is not there. For example, No bicycle. No have any sand. I not like it. No is preferred by most learners in this early stage, perhaps because it is the negative form that is easiest to hear and recognize in the speech they are exposed to. In the next stage, no and not may alternate with don t. However, don t is not marked for person, number, or tense and it may even be used before modals like can and should. For example, ( ). Next, learners begin to place the negative element after auxiliary verbs like are, is, and can. But at this stage, the don t form is still not fully analyzed, as shown in the example, ( ). Finally, do is marked for tense, person, and number, and most interlanguage sentences appear to be just like those of the target language. For instance, ( ). For some time, however, learners may continue to mark tense, person, and number on both the auxiliary and the verb, as in the example, ( ). This sequence of stages is descriptive of the second language development of most second language learners. (a) I didn t went there. She doesn t wants to go. (b) It doesn t work. We didn t have supper. (c) You can not go there. He was not happy. She don t like rice. (d) He don t like it. I don t can sing. (d) (c) (b) (a) 428 VISION

79 Appendix 02 기출문제 2013 년 2 차 03. Read <A> and <B> and follow the directions. [25points] A noun phrase can have one or multiple modifiers. The modifiers can precede or follow the noun, and the modification can be restrictive or nonrestrictive. Restrictive modifiers serve to identify the entity that the noun phrase refers to by providing information to narrow down the reference. On the other hand, nonrestrictive modifiers do not serve for identification, since their head noun is viewed as unique or as a member of a class that has been independently identified. The modifiers simply provide additional information about the head. The relative clauses in (1a) and (1b) are restrictive and nonrestrictive, respectively. In formal writing, (1b) is slightly unacceptable, and it is indicated with #. (1) a. John introduced me to the writer who sat behind me. b. #John introduced me to his mother who sat behind me. (2) Picture-A Picture-B A B Ted Baker 1 who explored many remote places wrote a lot of travel books. In his 2 brilliant last book, he described the lifestyle of the people on an islet 3 he visited with his beautiful wife. The islet has an active volcano, and the people deify it. Every year they sacrifice a 4 young girl to this volcano 5 of great value to them. In addition to the cherished volcano, since chimpanzees 6 who share 99 percent of our DNA exhibit behaviors similar to humans, the islanders consider them special creatures. Holding the belief 7 that the creatures are their guardians sent from God, the people revere the chief of the island 8 who can communicate with chimpanzees.
