The aim of this paper is to examine inflections according to conditions of stems and syntagmatic environments of endings beginning with "-ǝ/-α". This papre would propose an alternative method which reflects these aspects on Korean unabridged dictionary. This paper examined the final vowel of stems and specifically presented syntagmatic environments of "-ǝ" and"-α". We also totally adjusted inflections of endings beginning with"-ǝ/-α" according to patterns of the last syllable of stems. In many of former unabridged dictionaries, explanation about syntagmatic environments of ending beginning with "-ǝ/-α" is provided as "the method of complementary classification". And various inflectional aspects of endings are given in appendix. To offer more obvious and accurate informations on endings beginning with"-ǝ/-α", employing "the method that describes syntagmatic environments" is better than employing "the method of complementary classification", for there are difficulties in setting up a single and absolute criterion on choosing between "-ǝ" and "-α". We also suggest it is more efficient way that various inflections of endings are provided in additional informations of an entry, not in appendix.
