Summary Various types of sentential complements are known in Korean, they differ in their complementizer. We considered those with the complementizer ko (P-ko). Due to their grammatical properties, they do not have the status of noun phrase (NP), and they have particular properties: question in mwôlako (what) or in ôt’ôhke (how) and pronominalization with kîlôhke (this way). Thus, P-ko sentential complements show a mixture of nominal and adverbial features, though they often alternate with NP sentential complements in position of direct object. P-ko sentential complements do not share these properties with other similar sequences which must be classified as adverbial clauses.
