||Lee, Juwon. (2020). Semantic taxonomy and NP-coordination in Korean. The Linguistic Association of Korea Journal, 28(4), 147-174. This paper discusses the novel data of Korean NP-coordinations whose non-final conjunct is semantically incompatible with the verb of which the NP-coordinations are the object in a sentence. It is shown that these peculiar NP-coordinations cannot be accounted for by prior approaches to coordination in the literature. In particular, any theory that directly relates the verb with such a non-final conjunct faces a significant problem of semantic incompatibility. As a solution to this problem, I propose the hypothesis that the non-final conjunct of such NP-coordination must be semantically associated with the direct hypernym of the verb. I focus on conjunctive coordinations in this paper, but it is shown that the hypothesis can be further supported by some disjunctive coordinations in Korean.
