ABSTRACT

The aim of this study is to analyze the discussion discourse of college students conducted in the classroom and examine the adverb use patterns of male and female students from the perspective of gender and language. For this study, the use of degree adverb, conjunctive adverb, and other adverbs in the discussion discourse conducted by 20 students(11 female students and 9 male students) was examined. In adverb of degree, adverbs such as 'jogeum(조금), deo(더), da(다), yakgan(약간), manhi(많이)' showed high frequency of use. 'deo(더), da(다)' were mainly used in discussion discursive sequence rather than presentation discursive sequence, indicating that the two adverbs have a stronger character as spoken lnguage than as written language. In discussion discursive sequence, there was a significant difference in the frequency of use of 'deo(더), da(다)' for male students and the frequency of use of 'yakgan(약간)' for female students. In conjunctive adverb, adverbs such as 'geureomyeon(그러면), geureonde(그런데), geurigo(그리고), waenyahamyeon(왜냐하면)' showed high frequency of use. In presentation discursive sequence, male students showed a high frequency of 'waenyahamyeon(왜냐하면)', which supports that male students speak more consciously of the logical structure than female students. Among other adverbs, 'ildan(일단), ije(이제)' showed a significant frequency of use. In discussion discursive sequence, there was a significant difference in the frequency of use of 'ildan(일단)' for female students and the frequency of use of 'ije(이제)' for male students.
