I thought maybe I'll start a thread to consolidate different commonly used korean words that I've learned or heard. Anyone can share as well. I'll update my first post with your entries. Saw similar posts on korean language, so I hesitated on creating this thread, but nonetheless, I just hope to share what I learned in order to allow others to also at least understand a little about what the koreans are speaking about..
I'll group them into different categories depending on the nature of the word.
ì•„ë¹ [a-ppa] : daddy
ì—„ë§ˆ [eom-ma] : mummy
ì•„ë²„ì§€ [a-beo-ji] : father
ì–´ë¨¸ë‹ˆ [eo-meo-ni] : mother
ë™ìƒ [dong-saeng] : young sibling
ëˆ„ë‚˜* [nu-na] : elder sister (called by males)
í˜•* [hyeong] : elder brother (called by males)
ì–¸ë‹ˆ* [eon-ni] : elder sister (called by females)
ì˜¤ë¹ * [o-ppa] : elder brother (called by females)
í• ì•„ë²„ì§€ [ha-ra-beo-ji] : grandfather
í• ë¨¸ë‹ˆ [hal-meo-ni] : grandmother
* Note : It does not necessary refer to siblings with blood relation
In Korean, there are two types of adjectives, action word and describing word.
ê°€ìš” [ga-yo] : go
ìžìš” [ja-yo] : sleep
ë¨¹ì–´ìš” [meo-geo-yo] : eat
ë§ˆì…”ìš” [ma-syeo-yo] : drink
ì™€ìš” [wa-yo] : come
ë´ìš” [bwa-yo] : see/watch/look
ìžˆì–´ìš” [i-sseo-yo] : have
ì—†ì–´ìš” [eop-seo-yo] : don't have
ì´ì—ìš”/ì˜ˆìš”** [i-e-yo/ye-yo] : is
ì•„ë‹ˆì—ìš” [a-ni-e-yo] : is not
ë§žì•„ìš” [ma-ja-yo] : correct
ëª°ë¼ìš” [mol-la-yo] : don't know
ì•Œì•„ìš” [a-ra-yo] : know
** ì´ì—ìš”/ì˜ˆìš” usage of which word depends on the word before it. If the word ends with a consonant, use ì´ì—ìš”, If the word ends with a vowel, use ì˜ˆìš”.
