The grammar of the Korean language presented here is descriptive and structural, and does not align with any particular theory. An introductory chapter gives some background information about the language and related research. Subsequent chapters treat: writing and sound systems, including some sound rules and suprasegmental features; morphology (native and loan words, word structure, compounding, sound symbolism); word classes (nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, adnouns, adverbs, particles, interjections, phrases); sentences (structures, types, semantic roles, modification, word order, negation, passives and causatives, tense/aspect/mood); extended sentences (coordination and subordination, complex sentences, mixed sentences); and discourse (the sentence-discourse connection, speech acts, honorification, topic and focus, discourse references, discourse analysis). Contains 114 references. (MSE)
