The current investigation explores the development and use of the Spanishcopulas with adjectives by Korean-speaking learners. Twenty-three adultuniversity-level Korean-speaking learners of Spanish in South Korea completeda sociolinguistic interview task, a background questionnaire, and a grammarbasedproficiency test. A variationist analysis identified the range of forms producedin the [copula + adjective] (i.e., attributive) context, the frequency of useof each form, and the relationship between frequency and other factors, bothlinguistic and individual. Our findings show common patterns between Koreanspeakinglearners and the English-speaking learners in previous research butalso attest to distinct frequencies of use at earlier proficiency levels.
