This study suggests a way to stimulate awareness of word combinations through the use of Korean subtitles. For this, 3 participants watched the American TV drama Grimm. Each participant was required to collect 20 language forms from the Korean subtitles that interested them and to write the relevant language forms in English. Their data was analyzed into two categories according to (1) if they were word combinations or non word combinations; and (2) the type of word combination: collocation, routine, or language form subject to a grammar-based analysis. A and B collected 90.1% word combinations among the chosen language forms, and C collected about 79.3% word combinations in the first category. The results showed C had a high awareness of word combinations, B had a low awareness of word combinations in the second category, and A was somewhere in the middle. Though they revealed different levels of awareness of word combinations, Korean subtitles helped them develop a sense of collocated “big words” (Ellis, 1996, p. 111) distinct from that of individual words.
