A Study of Korean Causatives. Working Papers in Linguistics, Vol. 6, No. 4.
Patterson, Betty Soon Ju
This paper proposes that some but not all "I" causatives in Korean are analyzable, and argues that case markers in Korean are not merely surface phenomena, but are semantically and syntactically significant. The types of Korean causatives are introduced, as well as the major problems involved in their analysis. Previous generative works are summarized. The relationship between "I" and "ha" causatives is investigated; some syntactic and semantic properties of the two causatives are compared and utilized as criteria for evaluating the hypotheses considered. The phenomenon of surface case markers is also investigated, with particular attention to "ha" causatives, and the shapes of the underlying structures for the types of causatives are determined.
