juda (주다 )

show comment

This verb is one of the few verbs that allow for a double accusative case frame. Whether such a double accusative case frame is considered grammatical can vary from speaker to speaker, although I am quite sure that even those speakers who say that they do not use this construction will do so in colloquial speech, albeit under possibly quite restricted circumstances that need to be further explored.

The
ji-passive of this verb seems to occur with abstract nouns and mainly in contexts where somebody has been bestowed with something beneficial and unforeseen.
