The aim of this paper is to do semantic descriptions of the Korean verb ‘yeolda’, as one of the typical Korean polysemous words in the dictionary. The dictionary that intends to represent the native speaker’s lexical semantic knowledge must contain semantically related or correlative words which reflect the morphological and syntactic relations. To capture the polysemy of the lexical unit (lexie), the differences of lexical and grammatical characteristics can be used. When the semantic information such as argument structure, semantic role and semantic class is presented, and when the words are in paradigmatic relations (synonyms, antonyms) and syntagmatic relations (collocations) are captured, polysemy of the lexical unit can be analyzed more systematically and be accurately defined. First, we review the semantic descriptions of ‘yeolda’ in existing dictionaries, and then we try to describe ‘yeolda’ within the Dictionnaire Explicatif et Combinatoire of Mel'čuk for semantic description of the polysemous verb which reflect more accurate informations. This work can be a basis for presenting a way of dictionary description that reflects the lexical knowledge of a Korean speaker systematically.
