The purpose of this paper is to show how lexical and conceptual representation may be structured in the lexicon of Korean English (L2) users of high proficiency based on the data obtained from the currently used 7th grade English textbooks in Korea. For this purpose, nine out of the thirteen English textbooks, recently approved by the Ministry of Education in Korea for the 7``h National Curriculum applicable from the year 2001 for 5 years, were analyzed in terms of misusage. Pilot studies were conducted for those expressions in question and the confirmed misused expressions were then categorized according to their misusage type. Findings from this research show existence of misusage due to Ll (Korean) influence on L2 (English) even for the highly proficient adult L2 users, in this case, the textbook authors. Evidence is given in support of Kroll``s (1993) revised lexical and conceptual representation of cross language connection for bilinguals who are very fluent in L2 and De Groot``s (1993) idea of a mixed representational system within a bilingual memory.
