ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to analyze the common usage of Korean adverbs written by Korean undergraduates and foreign undergraduates in order to suggest educational contents for teaching adverbs in Korean language education. First of all, 207 kinds of adverbs 4,237 are collected from 43,919 words in 140 self-reflective writings, 108 book reports, and 102 persuasive writings written by 70 foreign undergraduates. 74 kinds of adverbs 483 turn out to be errors among 207 kinds of adverbs 4,237. At the same time, 452 kinds of adverbs 5,756 gathered from 73,032 words in 350 writings written by 70 Korean undergraduates are utilized as comparative data for analyzing the usage of adverbs written by foreigners. Through the analysis on adverbs, a couple of features are found out as follows: (1) Korean undergraduates use more adverbs of manner than foreigners. Meanwhile, errors of concordance frequently show up in adverbs of manner written by foreigners. (2) Foreigners use more conjunctive adverbs than Korean undergraduates. And, conjunctive adverbs are used the most in persuasive writings. (3) Adverbs of degree or time show up the most in adverbs written by foreigners as well as Korean undergraduates. (4) Foreigners use more negative adverbs than Korean undergraduates. This means foreigners prefer short negative sentence to long negative sentence. (5) Substitutive errors show up the most in adverbs written by foreigners.
