The Tungusic situation is a little more complex, but there, too, the morpheme forms nominals. In Evenki, it is used to build adnominal modifiers that in turn form present-tense verbals; for example, the word təgənni ‘you’re sitting’ is derived from *təgən-si, which is composed of the stem təgə- ‘to sit,’ the suffix -n, and the second-person suffix -si. Middle Korean -(o/u)n was, in its basic usage, much the same as its modern reflex. , taton (MWUN) 다 (門) ‘closed (door)’ (1481 Tusi o˘nhae 8:61a).
But when Kija remonstrated with the emperor over his corrupt practices, the emperor threw him into prison. After the Shang was subsequently overthrown by the Zhou, Kija took refuge in Choso˘n and established a state there (though just where is a hotly disputed topic in modern Korea). The new Zhou rulers, rather than pursuing this member of the previous dynasty’s nobility, rewarded Kija for his virtue and conferred upon him a peerage. At one time, this story was important to Koreans because it tied the nation’s origins to Chinese institutions and classical traditions.
5 The Contemporary reflexes of -(o/u)n and -(o/u)lq are used exclusively as modifier endings, but in the fifteenth century both also served as nominalizers. The use of -ki, which is now the most productive nominalizer, was rare at that time. ’ The Middle Korean ending -(o/u)lq was used for conjectures about the future, much as its Contemporary reflex still is today; for example, cwuki주기- ‘kill,’ cwukilq (salom) 주 (사) ‘(person) to be killed’ (1459 Wo˘rin so˘kpo 25:75b). As can be seen, the morpheme corresponds closely to its equivalent in Tungusic.
