Hae-yun Lee. 2007. An Analysis of Korean Collocations by Constraint-based Phrase Structure Grammar. Language and Linguistics 39, 177-197. This paper deals with Koran collocations such as 'geop-eul meokda' within the framework of 'Constraint-based Phrase Structure Grammar'. Regarding Noun-Verb collocations, it has turned out that the meaning of the noun is transparent and that of the verb is not. We begin with the assumption that a collocation is characterized not by unilateral selection but by bilateral selection between components of the collocation. On the one hand, a collocation phrase is assumed to be assigned to a so-called coll-ph type, where a verb selects not only syntactic information but also phonetic information of a noun. On the other hand, a noun selects a verb indirectly at the semantic level by generating the meaning of the whole collocation by means of the construction itself. Our analysis can account for the observation that collocation constructions don't allow for ellipsis, relativization and pronominalization, and that they can be modified internally by other components.
