Abstract

Yoon (2008, 2009) claimed that there are two distinct Subjects in Multiple Subject Constructions (MSCs) in Korean. The crux of his argument hangs on reinterpreting the traditionally proposed subject diagnostics as distinguishing between the Grammatical Subject (GS) and the Major Subject (MS) in MSCs. The claimed diagnostics for GS and MS were examined experimentally in MSCs and corresponding Single Subject Constructions (SSCs). We found that: (i) MS diagnostics and GS diagnostics were differentiated even in SSCs and (ii) there was no statistically significant difference between MS and GS diagnostics in MSCs. Implications of these findings are discussed.
