Korean Grammatical Constructions: Their Form and Meaning
The inaugural volume in the Saffron Korean Linguistics Series, this title is published in connection with the Centre of Korean Studies, London. The series is primarily devoted to functionally- and typologically-orientated research on the Korean language and linguistics. This volume addresses broadly defined issues rather than matters of abstract theoretical polemics. The series aims to offer an international academic forum for the dissemination of Korean linguistics as well as Korean language studies.
