- This paper is concerned with the relationship between the periphrastic causative construction and the complex construction with a subordinate purposive clause in Korean. It also attempts to account for the fact that there is a tighter' syntactic linkage in the former than in the latter. The investigation draws on the Clause Linkage Theory, part of Role and Reference Grammar. It is argued that the theory does not fare well with respect to the causative in Korean. In order to solve the problem, a diachronic scenario is suggested.
