The main purpose of this paper is to explain Korean final sentence ending in terms of information structure. Based on Lee's(1991) argument, this paper focuses on the functional understanding of modal suffixes. Traditionally, the category of modals do not represent all the different attitudes of a speaker toward the proposition and the hearer. Instead, it is known to fulfill two functions: mood and speech register and group according to different moods. With this in mind, the present study tries to show that information status coded by the ending suffixes should be distinguished from the status of modality. In analyzing the ending suffixes, the informational functions should be regarded as a basis for further understanding of modality.
