- The study investigated general Korean adult EFL learners’ recognition of English obligatory adjuncts that are found in the following constructions: passive, middle, cognate object, and subcategorization. The grammaticality judgment test of H Park (2008) was used with adjustment in the present study to measure the learners’ recognition of the sentences with different adjunct-related conditions and further analyses of the data were explored. The results revealed that the learners have an awareness of motivation to use an obligatory adjunct in these four constructions and the learners’ acceptability judgments on the given sentences are affected by lexical grammar features and L1 influence.
