Korean common words we catch up but don't know how to write

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. We all hear Korean words that are frequent in drama. We may know the meaning but how can we write or read them? please feel free to mention the common words you hear and may know or not know their meanings. It is a good chance to learn something new.

 

@stroppyse @triplem @gm4queen @phoenix24 @Lawyerh

@Lmangla @ktcjdrama @lu09 @Ameera Ali

 

I will start:

what are the connecting words commonly used?

for example:

그리고 (geurigo) – and

그래서 (keuraeseo) – So

그러면 (keureomyeon)– Then, In that case

그러니까 (keureonikka)– That’s why, For that reason

그러나, 그런데, 그렇지만, 하지만 – (keureona, Keureonde, keurohjiman, hajiman) But

그리고 (geurigo) – and

 

This word does mean "and", but it's actually closer to "also" as in "you, and also me".

 

There is another word 와 (wah) which means "and", but is more of a word ending rather than a separate word which is used to say "you and me".

 

This word also has a variation spelliing/pronunciation 과 (gwah) for when the word being connected ends in a consonant rather than a vowel.

 

Hope this was helpful.

thank you so much, actually I started Duolingo, and learned so many words :) I know now how to read basic words in Korean alphabet, I learned so many grammar too, which is so good.

 

but it is easier to apply lessons through listening :) that is why I am trying to pick up the words that recur too much in drama.

Nice. Listening will definitely help with picking up on words as well as the variations in pronunciation and usage. It's even better if you can find someone to speak Korean with. Anyway, good luck with it!

Questions in Korean

Now let's learn how to ask questions (interrogative). Such as: what, why, can you ...? Here are some common examples:

 
how? 어떻게? [eotteohke?]
what? 무엇? [mu-eos?], it sounds mueot
who? 누구? [nu-gu?]
why? 왜? [waeh?]

where? 어디에? [eodi-e?]

thank you so much for your interest. I am still learning :) so I can't give you precise answers, but I suggest you start with duolingo

 

https://www.duolingo.com/

 

as for why we write kamsahapnida with "P'' and pronounce it as "m" it is because of the tongue's difficulty to roll from s to p  it is easier to say it "samn" instead of "sapn"

 

it is something related to phonetics, so it will come through listening :)

just like English why do we write Knife with a "K" and pronounce it "nife"?

 

try to look for some common words too, there are many words we listen in daily dramas.

Another word is the negative order

 마세요 maseyo: means "don't"

 

Example 울지 마세요 ulji maseyo = don't cry

To me this english translation does not correlate with what I hear.  For example the above word - I hear as him-buk-kae vs. what is written as haen-bok - pronounciation is different.

Well ask @stroppyse 

But I know that writing is different from listening

 

I think 행복 (haengbok) is the root, happiness

 

행복해 (haengbokhae) (casual) is happy (adjective )

 

or 행복합니다 (haengbokhabnida) (honorific/polite)

 

https://www.lingq.com/en/learn-korean-online/translate/ko/행복해/

https://www.wordhippo.com/what-is/dynamic-translation/9f6b8d661ee173f676f1f8123e1c2e5146948742.html

 

The link has pronunciation 

 

my opinion 

haengbok

the ae sounds like "e"

the ng is like n but with a resonation. When followed by "b" sounds like "m"

try to say "nb". It is hard

so it sounds like "hemboke"

 

This belongs to phonetics science

Hmm... actually, this word is used more to mean figure out or find out or determine rather than confirm or validate as your link defines it.

Your explanation is pretty good on this one. The word 행복 (haeng-bok) means happiness. And, 행복해 (haeng-bok-hae) means "is happy", though more commonly used as 행복해다 (haeng-bok-hae-da).

 

As for @angelwingssf hearing it as "him-buk-kae", may just be the diphthongs slurring into each other as you pointed out. The last 2 syllables buk-kae is definitely a diphthong issue since buk-hae (as it's written) is frequently pronounced buk-kae. I learned to speak it before I learned to write it, so had to learn to spell it correctly rather than write it phonetically. :)  However, the first syllable isn't as common to hear the "ng-b" combination as "m", but definitely a possibility, especially for someone who isn't used to hearing the ng-b combination.
