Abstract

Semantic prime SEE in English is known as MIRU in Japanese which is written as 見る in Japanese kanji and kana. Miru as a verb however, is not written only in one way as mentioned above, but may also be written in some different ways by using different kanji which is followed by kana as okurigana, such as 視るmiru, 観る miru, and 看るmiru. In general, these kanji bring semantic prime SEE or MIRU in Japanese, but actually each of this kanji has their particular meaning as well. This paper is aimed at defining the differences between those verbs in Japanese which has the same semantic prime MIRU. MIRU as a semantic prime belongs to the group of Japanese Mental Predicate. The approach used in this paper is the Natural Semantics Metalanguage which was first proposed by Anna Wierzbicka in 1972 and has been developed greatly until today.
