||Lee, Juwon. (2018). Intentionality, Purpose, and Tasi 'Again' in Korean. The Linguistic Association of Korea Journal, 26(2), 147-173. In this article, I introduce a peculiar repetitive reading of the adverb tasi again in Korean (called purpose-repetitive reading), and show that prior analyses (using lexical, structural, or semantic taxonomy-based approaches) in the literature cannot account for this new reading. Some crucial properties of purpose-repetitive readings are discussed. As the name suggests, this reading entails that an agent has a purpose, and presupposes that an agent previously had the same purpose. An alternative account involving omission of the purposive clause is shown not to be able to account for purpose-repetitive readings. Thus, I propose a new lexical entry for tasi again (i.e., the purposive tasi) adapting the lexical semantic analysis in Beck (2005) and using the modality of the agent's intention à la Inman (1993). Finally, I show that purpose-repetitive readings are also possible for more complex constructions like serial verb constructions and resultative constructions in Korean.
