The purpose of this paper is to compile a list of Japanese compound verbs for Korean learners who have achieved an intermediate level of Japanese. To that end, a preliminary list of the 106 most frequently appearing compound verbs was compiled and then further reduced to the 17 compound verbs listed below based on their significance.
ii-dasu, uke-ireru, uke-toru, oti-tuku, omoi-dasu, tati-agaru, de-kakeru, deki-agaru, tori-ageru, tori-ireru, tori- dasu, hanasi-au, hanasi-kakeru, ori-kaeru, mi-okuru, mi-tukeru, mi-naosu
Also, this paper suggests that the following 7 grammatical compound verbs are relatively more important than the other grammatical compound verbs in terms of frequency:
∼au, ∼hazimeru, ∼dasu, ∼sugiru, ∼tudukeru, ∼naosu, ∼kiru
The results show that the compound verbs listed above can be beneficial for both teaching and learning Japanese.
