Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference proceeding contribution


This paper presents part of my PhD research that has attempted to explore the textual metafunction of the Korean language for the purpose of translation studies. As an interim report on the working project, it mainly focuses on the discussion of methodological issues that have been raised in the process of modelling the system of THEME of Korean.
