초록 Lee, In. (2018). Oral versus written English grammar: Evidence from Korean adult learners' data. The Linguistic Association of Korea Journal, 26(2), 133-146. The purpose of this study is to find out how Korean adult learners of English elicit their answers to the questions which require the use of an English ditransitive verb. Twenty-five students at Jeonju National University of Education in Korea provided the data for this study in 2016. They were juniors majoring in Primary English Education. Over the course of this study, the language informants were asked a number of questions about three different scenes adopted from a wordless picture book, A Circle of Friends, by Giora Carmi (2003). Their oral responses to these questions were collected twice: once in the first week of Semester 1 and again in the first week of Semester 2. Their written responses were collected one month after the second oral test was administered. Their responses were evaluated in terms of two criteria: (i) How sensitive to Focus is each response? (ii) How sensitive to 'Tense' is the response? The following are the findings. First, the language informants oral responses were more sensitive to Focus in Test 2 than in Test 1 except for the responses to Q3c, What is the old man doing with a seed? Second, the language informants were more sensitive to Tense than to Focus in each test. Third, Korean adult learners responded more appropriately when the theme was the current topic of attention.
