ABSTRACT

The aim of this paper is to classify sentence patterns of Verbal Idiomatic Phrases, and to analyze the character of these. We examined results of previous studies dealing with Verbal IdPs and criticized their limitations. We also dealt with the characteristic of the argument structure and the inner structure of Verbal IdPs which have not been studied enough. Used as a predicate in a sentence, a Verbal IdP expresses a new meaning by combining more than two elements. The Verbal IdP have some properties, That is 1) It requires necessary argument like a ‘NP-eseo’ or a ‘NP-ui’ not as adjective predicates or verb predicates; 2) There appear some alternations, for example, between ‘NP-i’ and NP-eseo’ or ‘NP-ui’ and NP-ul’ in some Verbal IdPs. And 3) Verbal IdP requires a compliment clause. We inquired sentence patterns of Verbal IdPs, which are classified into one-valence Verbal IdPs, two-valence Verbal IdPs, and three-valence Verbal IdPs.
