Abstract: The goal of this paper is to demonstrate the pragmatic and syntactic traits of the sentence-final particle -yo in Korean. Such properties of this particle overlap with those of discourse particles in other languages such as Romanian, West Flemish, etc. Based on the common properties between the two particles, the syntax of the latter is carried over to the former. That is, Speech Act Phrase shell is on top of CP hosting the discourse particle -yo. This analysis correctly predicts the banned occurrences of -yo in embedded clauses.
