Abstract
The Korean adjectives are often indistinguishable from verbs in the
viewpoint of the morphological and syntactic criterion which tell adjectives
from verbs, so the categorial identity of the Korean adjectives have been
questioned. In this results, the Korean adjectives are often regarded as
unaccusative predicates which is a kind of verb. But it must be given a
careful consideration to the deciding whether the Korean adjectives are
unaccusative predicates or not. First, the adjectives, so called verby
adjectives, which are indistinguishable from verbs dont reveal the
unaccusativity. Second, If the adjectives which reveal some characteristics of
unacuusativity satisfy the general criterion of adjective-classification, those
adjectives must be regarded as adjectives not unaccusative predicates. Third,
diagnostics have been posited for unaccusativity in Korean is not right in
the stream of the unaccusativity discussion since the Perlmutter(1978)s
argument. Fourth, the criterion which tell adjectives from verbs must be
reconsidered with flexibility in the viewpoint of degrees, for example,
typical adjectives and non-typical adjectives.
