Korean is a descriptive grammar book for language teachers, students, and scholars of Korean linguistics. Since Korean is a comprehensive reference book which provides a broad and detailed description of the structure of the language in a theory-neutral manner, it is useful to Korean linguists of any theoretical orientation, while still extremely accessible to students studying the language beyond the elementary level.
