This paper aims to examine whether Korean college students’ experiences with prior context can influence their understanding of temporal expressions. The experiment investigated the perspective implied by prior context would influence our understanding of ambiguous metaphorical expressions about time in English and Korean. The results of the experiment indicate that prior context can influence temporal reasoning. Specifically, in the case of English target sentence, the number of time-moving consistent responses significantly differs between the time-moving and mixed context conditions, and between the time-moving and ego-moving context conditions. While, in the case of Korean target sentence, the number of time-moving consistent responses did not significantly differ between the time-moving and mixed context, between the mixed-context and ego-moving context, and between the time-moving and ego-moving context conditions. Based on the results of the experiment, I conclude that prior context of motion can influence Korean people’s understanding of metaphorical expressions about time in English and Korean. Further, this study shows that Korean people exhibit a clear preference for time-moving metaphor and they produce a greater proportion of Monday responses relative to Friday in Korean than English.
