Abstract:

In this paper, I have shown evidence that the potential Korean middle construction (K2) is a passive, adducing five pieces of evidence: (1) spontaneity, (2) the existence of an agent, (3) non-stative, (4) non-generic, and (5) no requirement of adverb modification. It will also be classified under a morphological passive, since it carries the same morpheme as the suffixal passive and has properties of the canonical passive.
