Hye-Jin Kim. 2009. A Study of the Semantic Features with Respect to ‘-(e)ci-’ (1). Journal of the International Network for Korean Language and Culture. Vol. 6-2. 59-75. This paper describes the semantic features with respect to ‘-(e)ci-’ when they are used by native speakers in daily life. In order to perform of this study, we selected 115 pieces of transitive verbs from object verbs. The selected verbs combined by ‘-i/hi/li/ki-’, ‘-(e)ci-’, and ‘duplicated passive form’ are usually composed of actual sentences. We investigated the usage of the three forms such as ‘-i/hi/li/ki-’, ‘-(e)ci-’ and ‘duplicated passive form’ when native speakers actually use them in daily life. As a result, native speakers use ‘-(e)ci-’ in the following situations: (1) the natural situation due to the passage of time, (2) the unexpected situation that is suddenly occured, and the accidental situation that is happened by chance, (3) expression depending on the property of the subject. All doers do not exist in this study. Thus, the semantic feature of ‘-(e)ci-’ is exactly different from ‘-i/hi/li/ki-’ and ‘duplicated passive form’, and the representative feature of ‘-(e)ci-’ is not passivity meaning but the natural situation due to the passage of time.
