This paper aims to analyze the semantic features of Chinese character suffixes such as '店(shop), 館(hall), 房(room)' and to study the characteristics of derived words meaning the place of business. First of all, we extracted suffixes of place and derived words from Korea University Korean Dictionary, The Standard Korean Dictionary etc. Also we analyzed the basic meaning and the semantic features of ‘店, 館, 房’. Then we examined the lexicological characteristics of the derived words from the sides including the origin of a word, word-formation and the register. This article also introduced many new words compounding with the Chinese character suffixes, from what we can know more about present using of them. We are looking forward to making such similar research on other Chinese character suffixes related to the place of business.
