Lee, Eun Kyeong. L2 Acquisition of English Verbs Syntactic Distinction on Intransitivity and Transitivity. Studies in English Language & Literature 46.3 (2020): 391-410. This paper sheds light on investigating how much Korean learners of English (the second language learners of English, L2ers) figure out intransitivity and transitivity of the selected English verbs, focusing on their following complemental factors deriving from a certain verbs individual property. One more, it is closely relevant that L2ers can distinguish the typical sentence type with a verbs expanded pattern such as Type 1 through Type 5. Thus, 154 L1ers (the first language learners of Korean) in English class are asked to rapidly respond to 60 scrambled sentences via the limited experimental task. As a result, three hypotheses presented here are verified as somewhat valid ones: First, the acquisition of intransitivity is comparatively easier than that of transitivity. Second, double-sided verbs with both intransitivity and transitivity would cause much challenging confusion to L2ers. Lastly, L1s transfer affects L2s comprehensive development process positively or negatively according to circumstances. Eventually, it is concluded that English L2ers would bear both simple and complicated aspects simultaneously in understanding the complemental property of an individual English verb.
