ABSTRACT

This article aims to explore pedagogical techniques that may facilitate reading proficiency in Korean learners. The lexical and grammatical elements need to be included in the foreign learners’ reading activity. The knowledge about words and their semantic meaning can make learners understand the core meaning of text. Especially the understanding about transitivity could help learners understand the context. In this property could be included such attributes as animacy, agency, and intention. In this study with the aid of measurement of transitivity, I could verify that the core meanings are located near the sentences that have high degree of transitivity. A study program should be devised that aids learners with regard to the aforementioned, so I suggest such methods as semantic mapping and semantic feature analysis.
