Thanks for starting that list. A couple noob questions of my own:


I keep hearing the following and would like to know what they mean.

1. Sounds like 힌드러

2. Sounds like 보라고, or 이라고

3. Sounds like 그러지, sometimes 그러지만


Not sure if the pairs are even related, but I hear them with the same inflection and they sound similar, so...

Your spelling is wrong above, but I'm pretty sure I know what you're hearing. I don't have a Korean keyboard at the moment so I can't correct it. Maybe someone else will.

1. Him not Hin. It means "I'm tired".. typically heard after a chick has walked for more than about 10 seconds, or is on a hill, or has just answered a couple of questions in class..

2. I think you are hearing mweo-ra-go. It means "What was that?" or "What did you just say?" As in the listener didn't quite catch what the speaker was saying. Sometimes the "mi-eum" character sounds like a "bi-eum" character.. especially when blurted out suddenly.

3.(i) I think what you're probably hearing means "teach" or "taught". When used in conversation it generally means "that's right/correct". You might also hear it in, for example, a martial arts class when you've done a move correctly after the master demonstrated (taught) it to you.

3(ii) What you actually wrote means "but", but judging from the other words you asked about I bet what you tried to write is what I said before (teach/taught), rather than but.

1. Hahaha, I'm pretty sure you nailed that one. Thanks!

2. I think they are something else because I don't hear either of them as an interjection. Maybe though.

3. The first one would make sense as "that's right" but I'm hearing the second one at the start of a phrase, so I'm inclined to think that it IS "but."


Thanks a bunch, and if anyone could give me the correct spellings that would be awesome!

I think this thread should be stickied.

Edit:
But what about beautiful? I thought it was "예쁘다"

One that I left off the list that should be there is the adjective "Crazy" ....can anyone help ?

Also...these are extremely important....could you also add a note on usuage ?

can ( permission) :
can (ability) :
to have :
to be :

For beginners a brief note on how to manipulate verbs to make the simple past and future tense would also be great.

crazy is 미치다. Just look at any sign related to US beef and you will see it.

이쁘다 and 예쁘다 are the same. 예쁘다 is more dictionary correct, but I hear 이쁘다 more often. Especially the young generation.

I agree. Maybe if enough people sent the mods PM's we could make it happen.

As Ilsanman rightly said, it is 미치다. As you seem quite new to the language, it is worth noting that crazy is not used in a fun or joking context as much as it is in English. It can be used as a joke but it needs to be done carefully. It can be quite an offensive thing to say to a Korean...

Thanks for this thread; great idea!

Should be made a sticky.

2. Whats the simplest way to say in Korean : 'I don't eat any kind of seafood'/ or / 'Do you have anything without any type of seafood?'

3. Does this bus go to .................?

Thanks very much for this; im taking korean lessons soon, but this shit is survival.

1. Without is "bay go". I'm not sure of the hangeul, maybe 배고? Noun first, then bay go. Bibimbap gim baygo jusaeyo.

2. You could say "eum sheek haemul baygo isseoyo"--"Is there food (eum sheek) without (baygo) seafood (haemul)?" There is probably a better way to say that though but they should understand you.

3. The location's name (ex. Itaewon), plus "eh" plus "ga yo".

"Itaewon-eh gayo?"
Goes to Itaewon?

This works if you're asking the bus driver. If you ask somebody on the street, I'm not sure. Maybe "ee bawsuh (this bus) Itaewon-eh gayo?"

not quite

to say is there any food without seafood you would say

해물 없는 음식 있어요? (seafood without food is there?) what you were saying is i don't eat seafood. (what you said is easier tho)

also you can drop the eh in Itaewon-eh gayo? a little to textbook, it is correct tho
