  5. Mphil thesis review (December 6, 2004) (Original available at: Thesis title: Semantic Theories and the Foundation of Bilingual Lexicography This is a well studied and well presented piece of research. The candidate has selected three major themes in semantic theory and practice—corpus analysis, frame semantics, and prototype theory—and applied them to problems in Korean-English lexicography. He has a good grasp of the subject and he offers some insightful comments. After showing the relevance of the research to problems in bilingual lexicography, the candidate proceeds to offer a fine-grained contrastive monolingual analysis of English Lexicography lexicography, the candidate proceeds to offer a fine-grained contrastive monolingual analysis of English near synonyms (confirm / ascertain), in which he not only used corpus data, but also consulted the intuitions of two native speakers (one British, one North American). I would normally recommend a larger sample of native speakers, but in this case the candidate appears to have been wise (or fortunate) in his choice of informants—ie., their intuitions generally concur with my own! The candidate has adopted a good methodology and applied it intelligently; he is an independent thinker, and he has made a valuable contribution to knowledge.

Launched a prototype Koedori (, which provides a crude form of the Engle’s multi-phrase search. It is currently down due to trouble with the data source (Yahoo).
  7. User response to Koedori • Orange County: When I first came across this website I was doubtful of its usage, but I have to admit that it has helped me throughout my essay. I was able to polish my English and correct grammatically faulty expressions. As an English learner, it is always tricky to remember the proper prepositions placed before verbs and noun; however, through Koedori I was able to adjust many of these confusing mistakes. • Mellow : I used Koedori for over a month and I find the website very useful because I was able to improve my writing skill. As it is with most Korean students, I have trouble with writing because of the different grammatical structure between Korean and English. Though I learnt grammar at school, I cannot remember all the grammar rules and sometimes cannot understand why some Engle development school, I cannot remember all the grammar rules and sometimes cannot understand why some sentences have to be written in certain ways. So Koedori is a useful site to find out grammatical errors easily. • 율려율려율려율려 : thanks for your kindness. It’s a miracle. • RONDY: This site is exactly what I was looking for! All those time i searched for a site like this but it was here after all;; • 이혜승이혜승이혜승이혜승: Wow! I think it's really helpful. I usually go to websites to see whether expressions I make are correct or not. But soon found out that there are too many and I get confused what is really right. I should recommend it to my students as well. • IHAVE: This site is bloody good! I've fallen in love with ..
  8. User response to Koedori • Amare: 와우 정말 영작하는 사람에겐 must have 아이템이네요. Translation: Wow, this is really a must-have for those who write English. • Nin999: 1. 문제: 인터넷을 이용하여 - by internet 인지 on the internet인지 헷갈려서요~ 2. 입력: [by/on] [0/the] internet 3. 결과: on the internet이 82%로 나왔습니다!! on internet도 몇가지 나왔는데 보면 on internet policy 등 뒤에 다른 명사가 연결되어 하나의 단어가 되는 경우네요 4. 감상: 훌륭합니다. 무심코 by internet을 쓸려고 하다보니 웬지 on the internet을 많이 들어본 거 같아 시험차 돌려봤는데 탁월합니다. Translation: I was trying to express “Internet-ul iyonghayo” and unsure whether it is “by internet” or Engle development Translation: I was trying to express “Internet-ul iyonghayo” and unsure whether it is “by internet” or “on the internet”. So I entered “[by/on] [0/the] internet”, and “on the internet” had 82%. .. This is great. I was originally going to use “by internet” but remembered hearing “on the internet” quite often. So I checked, and this is great. • Anicom: 정말 유용한 것 같습니다. 예전에는 Google에서 'have a fun', 'have fun' 등을 각각 입력 후 빈도수를 확인했는데...꾀돌이는 검색 옵션도 간단하고 빈도수에 따른 퍼센트(%)를 제공해서 제대로 된 영문인지 한 눈에 파악하기가 훨씬 쉬운 것 같습니다. Translation: I think this is really useful. Previously I had to Google ‘have a fun’, ‘have fun’, etc. and check their frequencies separately, but Koedori provides a simple search method and percentages so I can get the result in a single view.
  9. • Lovely S: 영작할 때 정관사를 넣을지 말지 고민될 때가 많은데요~ 꾀돌이를 이용하니 편하네요 ^^ Translation: When I write English I often struggle with the definite article. Using Koedori makes it easier. • Song: 영작을 하면서 맞는지 틀린지 정말 궁금했는데...꾀돌이 너무 좋아요. • Translation: I have always wondered whether my writing is correct or not ... Koedori is really good. • 꽁순이꽁순이꽁순이꽁순이 : 꾀돌이 써보니 정말 정말 좋아욤!! 사실 사전보면서 한정적인 예문에 많이 답답했는데 꾀돌이 몇번으로 속이 시원해지는듯.... Translation: I have used Koedori and it’s really good. When I was using dictionaries I felt frustrated Engle development Translation: I have used Koedori and it’s really good. When I was using dictionaries I felt frustrated because of the limited amount of examples, but using Koedori a few times has made me feel fresh and live.

  12. MLitt thesis review (5 June, 2014) (Original available at: Title: A Causal Approach to Transitivity This is a rigorously argued thesis on a topic of importance ... Some recent work on transitivity and causality is not directly addressed but this need not be seen as detracting from the overall high quality and theoretical interest of the candidate’s proposals. ... The claims made about the event structure realized in this particular verb are tested against naturally Theoretical linguistics The claims made about the event structure realized in this particular verb are tested against naturally occurring data on the Web. This data-gathering approach is justified in some detail and what appears to be an original method of data extraction by ‘control’ phrases is presented. ... In the viva examination ... the examiners were generally impressed by the candidate’s response to challenging questioning both about general theoretical points, in particular the core claim about the role of ‘causality’ in the definition and analysis of transitivity, and also about detailed matters concerning the data being presented. ...
