ABSTRACT

This study is one of the ground work to construct the necessary curricular of teaching grammar. Thus, this paper studies the errors appeared in grammatical collocation, which is one of category-based classification of patterns, with the viewpoint of communicative grammar instruction and tries to make ground data to find more efficient grammar instruction. A Korean textbook includes lexical function items such as single vocabularies, lexical collocation, idioms and proverbs, lexically approached grammar items, specific verb's frame structure. It also includes frequently used sentences being used by people of Korean mother tongue and category-based classification of patterns that shows medium characteristics of the two factors composing complex factors of lexis and grammar. The intermediate and advanced levels of textbooks include more category- based classification of patterns. It is resulted from the fact that the category-based classification of patterns that is composed of chunk units is more efficient in learning a language than lexically approached grammatical items. This paper studies errors in grammatical collocation that is one of category-based classification of patterns. But it regards the grammatical collocation of vocabulary-grammar complex structure as a unit to differentiate from the existing research method that has seen the learners errors with the analytical viewpoint of grammatical range system. It found that Korean learners were inclined to use the grammatical collocation, which is chunk of lexico-grammar complex structure, analytically relying on their own incomplete Korean structural knowledge. It found that one of main reasons was unsystematic Korean educational grammar and instruction. This paper can provide Korean learners with realistic materials for efficient grammar instruction. It is expected that the accumulated experienced materials could be used as basic materials to set up Korean educational grammar system with the new viewpoint based on category-based approach.
