Negative and honorific suppletion in Korean: solving a paradox

Korean shows a locality paradox with respect to the conditioning of allomorphy in the domain of negation and honorification (Chung 2009, Choi & Harley 2019). I propose to resolve this paradox by decomposing negation and honorification. The decomposition allows a theory of suppletion which is strictly local, in that the trigger for suppletion and the root form a constituent (Caha 2017, De Clercq & Vanden Wyngaerd 2017).
