Hi there all my rice cakes. (Because tteok means rice cake in Korean)

I have made a Facebook group for Let’s Tteok Korean since I feel like that’s the best way for everyone to interact. So yes I will continue using these tumblr page of course and perhaps the actual Facebook page. I’ll see how things work out for now.

So here is the link to the group page: LETSTTEOK-KOREAN

If there are any issues, please inform me and I shall try to attend to them.

Please share this with your fellow rice cakes—or just anyone who wants to learn Korean.

Thank you!

Hello everybody,

Here are some notes I felt like hasn’t been gone over and probably should. I feel like it’d be a big clutter of random posts if it was all separate. I’ll probably start (maybe this might happen more than just on this post) doing little notes with posts like these if the time comes and I forget a little bit of something.


Note #1:

When saying words that end with a consonant such as and the next set of characters that start with , the will drag on. 

For example:

없다 is pronounced as “eob-da" technically. If it was "없어”, it’d be pronounced as “eobs-eo”. Also, it works with words such as “무엇입니까?" which is said as, "mu-eo-shim-ni-kka" to be correct. 

And that is because the doesn’t actually make a sound and is just there for sets of characters that start off with a vowel sound.

So, if there are sets of characters where one word ends with a consonant as the last letter in the set, and the next letter of the other set is , then the sound is dragged on.

Note #2: 

The marker (or actually, it’s not technically a marker but it’s added to the end of certain words), is 께서 (gge-seo), and it is used after honorific titles, Such as 고모 (aunt on father’s side). 

So when you use 고모 (go-mo) in a sentence, you’d add 꺼서 (gge-seo) n front of it, making it 고모께서 (go-mo-gge-seo),

There will be more notes like this in the future, please keep that in mind.

Thank you for reading :)
