초록 Choi, YoungSik. (2019). Adjectives in Korean are NOT. The Linguistic Association of Korea Journal 27(1), 122-141. I argue that putative adjectives in Korean do not form a separate syntactic category but fall into the category of verbs. I critically review the arguments for the adjectives in Korean as a separate syntactic category, and present various arguments against them. I further go on to argue that putative adjectives in prenominal position are not attributive adjectives, but actually verbs, forming a relative clause and thus behaving as predicatives. It will be shown that the various interpretations of putative adjectives in Korean in the prenominal position follow from the present proposal.
