Abstract
In this paper, I discuss distributional differences between "adjectives" and "verbs" in Korean to show that Korean employs the category Adjective in addition to the category Verb. I first examine three distributional differences between "adjectives" and "verbs," which have been discussed as controversial in Yeo (2004). I then discuss that "adjectives" and "verbs" are in fact distributionally different, and that a suggestion that Korean does not employ the category Adjective may not be viable. During the discussion, I discuss two further distributional differences between adjectives and verbs and the nature of the distributional differences discussed here. Finally, I also discuss some controversial cases from the present perspective.
