Xie, Li. 2016. The Mock Plural Expressions of Korean. Korean Journal of Linguistics, 41-3, 431-448. This paper aims to establish the classification criteria for plurals and classify them according to the criteria from a typological perspective, and examine which expressions can express mock plural in Korea. The mock plural is a kind of plurals that doesn’t express the plural concept despite having the plural formal, and that expresses other meanings such as politeness. Based on the concept of mock plural, this paper examines Korean person pronouns ‘Wuli/우리’, ‘Cehuy/저희’, ‘Nehuy/너희’ in Chapter 3. And the conclusion is that ‘Wuli1/우리1’, ‘Cehuy1/저희1’, and ‘Nehuy1/너희1’ can express the mock plural meaning. (Seoul National University)
