This paper diachronically analyzed addressee-honorifics of Kokdugaksi Norum which has been recorded for nearly one century. In Chapter 1, I hypothesized that there are variations in sentence-endings and honorific expressions of Kokdugaksi Norum since language changes over time. Chapter 2 introduced the plot of the Korea’s traditional puppet-play and examined the number of sentences and syntactic words spoken by Kokdugaksi in Kokdugaksi Geori. Chapter 3 explored the variation aspects according to two traditional groups of the puppet-play and diachronically combined them for analysis given there is not much linguistic difference between the two groups. As a result, I linguistically found diachronical changes in sentence-endings to verify the hypothesis established in Chapter 1. Also, as the use of speech level ‘ha-o’ decreased, the use of ‘hae-yo’ increased and speech levels ‘hae’ and ‘ha-sip-si-o’ partly served the function of ‘ha-o’. In terms of content, changes in the sentence-endings and honorific expressions spoken by Kokdugaksi resulted in weakening resistance to and criticism of patriarchy delivered by Kokdugaksi. This paper applied this phenomenon to dialogues between modern husbands and wives. It concluded linguistic gender inequality exists in dialogues of modern husbands and wives and the decrease in speech level ‘ha-o’ was the major reason for it. Finally, Chapter 4 summarized main points and described contributions of this paper.
