Honorific agreement is one of the main properties of languages like Korean or Japanese, playing an important role in appropriate communication. This makes the deep processing of honorific information crucial in various computa- tional applications such as spoken lan- guage translation and generation. We argue that, contrary to the previous lit- erature, an adequate analysis of Ko- rean honorification involves a system that has access not only to morpho- syntax but to semantics and pragmatics as well. Along these lines, we have de- veloped a typed feature structure gram- mar of Korean (based on the frame- work of HPSG), and implemented it in the Linguistic Knowledge Builder System (LKB). The results of parsing our experimental test suites show that our grammar provides us with enriched gram...
