ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to investigate uses of {keurae} discourse markers in Korean Language textbooks. And it discusses teaching-learning contents of {keurae} discourse markers. {keurae} discourse markers have three basic roles in Korean oral interaction: First, they have textual function so that they make discourse more coherent. Second, they do interpersonal function, regulating distance between speaker and listener. Third, they function cognitive roles by getting more time to respond to other participants’ utterance. This study examines use of {keurae} discourse markers in speaking and listening text and verifies their basic functions. And it analyzes each sub-functions of {keurae} discourse markers respectively and additional functions that several existing studies do not cover. Finally, this study points out some problems in the Korean textbooks and the remedies. First of all, Korean textbooks give too much importance to ‘keurae’. This study suggests that the other discourse markers are dealt with more frequent. And Korean textbooks should suggest variations of each {keurae} discourse markers, context of using them and difference of their use. Finally it is suggested that we need to focus more on the passive and avoiding response markers.
