Vol.2, No.1 | [Articles] A contrastive study of Korean and Romance language collocations: a corpus based study



In this research we introduce our methodology of describing Korean collocations in multilingual perspective focusing on the contrastive aspects among languages. We selected 5000 Korean collocations based on the notion of restricted and bound collocations , and then tried to represent their equivalents in four target languages : Spanish, English, Italian and French. Based on our corpus of collocations, we present a contrastive analysis of lexico semantic and syntactic aspects of collocations among languages. We mainly focus on Korean and Spanish datas and then compare them with French and Italian collocations along with English datas.
