Basic Conjugation in Korean! (Diary/Plain Form)
So, I have been learning Korean for a year~ I decided to help people with Korean! This is a Grammar lesson on the most basic form of Conjugation ~~~ It is hardly used when having a normal conversation since it is view as informal It is usually used when you are not speaking or writing to a specific audience It is mainly used when writing in magazines, newspaper, tests or in diaries Though, when talking to friends I think it is okay to use it :3 I will first start with Verb Conjugation!~ I will start with Past, then Present and then Future Tense :) When conjugating to Past Tense you use μ•˜λ‹€, or μ—ˆλ‹€ μ•˜λ‹€ is used when the last Vowel in the verb stem is either ㅏ or γ…— For example κ°€μ Έκ°€λ‹€, it means To Take or To Carry When conjugated it turns into κ°€μ Έκ°”λ‹€, meaning I took or I carried While μ—ˆλ‹€ is used when the last Vowel is not ㅏ or γ…— For example λ§ˆμ‹œλ‹€, it means To Drink When Conjugated it turns into λ§ˆμ…¨λ‹€, meaning I drank Though, this is when ν•˜ is at the end of the Verb then μ˜€λ‹€ is used For example μƒμƒν•˜λ‹€, it means To Imagine When it is conjugated it turns to μƒμƒν–ˆλ‹€, meaning I imagined Also, when conjugating if the Verb Stem ends in a Vowel then the vowels mix Such as If the verb stem ends with μ•„ When conjugated with μ•˜λ‹€ It becomes μ•˜λ‹€ not μ•„μ•˜λ‹€ Such as when κ°€μ Έκ°€λ‹€ is conjugated it turns into κ°€μ Έκ°”λ‹€ not κ°€μ Έκ°€μ•˜λ‹€ Here is what the vowels turn into when conjugated with μ•˜λ‹€/μ—ˆλ‹€/μ˜€λ‹€ μ•„ + μ•˜λ‹€ = μ•˜λ‹€ 였 + μ•˜λ‹€ = μ™”λ‹€ 우 + μ—ˆλ‹€ = μ› λ‹€ 이 + μ—ˆλ‹€ = μ˜€λ‹€ μ–΄ + μ—ˆλ‹€ = μ—ˆλ‹€ μ—¬ + μ—ˆλ‹€ = μ˜€λ‹€ ν•˜ + μ˜€λ‹€ = ν–ˆλ‹€ Also, if the verb stem ends with a consonant just add μ—ˆλ‹€/μ•˜λ‹€ after it :) Such as λ“£λ‹€, it means To Listen When conjugated it turns into λ“£μ—ˆλ‹€, meaning I listened Present Tense Conjugation for Verbs When you want to use Present Tense you add λŠ”λ‹€ or γ„΄λ‹€ λŠ”λ‹€ is used when the Verb Stem ends with a consonant, it is known as a final consonant For example λ“£λ‹€, it means to listen When conjugated it turns to λ“£λŠ”λ‹€, meaning Listening γ„΄λ‹€ is used when the verb ends with a vowel For example κ°€μ Έκ°€λ‹€, as above, it means To Take, or To Carry When conjugated it turns into κ°€μ Έκ°„λ‹€, meaning Carrying, or Take Future Tense is easy For both Adjective and Verb Conjugation all you do is add κ² λ‹€ Such as κ°€μ Έκ°€λ‹€, it turns into κ°€μ Έκ°€κ² λ‹€, Will carry or Will take λ§ˆμ‹œλ‹€, turns into λ§ˆμ‹œκ² λ‹€, Will drink μƒμƒν•˜λ‹€, is μƒμƒν•˜κ² λ‹€, Will imagine :) Adjective Conjugation is almost the same as Verb conjugation Past Tense form is the same thing as Verb Conjugation Such as λœ¨κ²λ‹€, it means To be hot, When conjugated to past tense it is λœ¨κ²μ—ˆλ‹€ which means Was Hot :) Then Present Tense, when using Future tense you do not add or take anything away from the adjective You just leave it as it is :) For Future Tense just add κ² λ‹€! Same thing as Verb Tense ^.^ This took me so long to write, and I tried to explain it as best as I could ;-; I really hope it helps those who are learnings tarting to learn Korean conjugation :3 @LenaBlackRose @AimeeH @ninjamidori This is the first Korean Lesson Card ^.^ I am going to work on the next in a little since my hands hard from texting, and writing everything down for the past 2 hours ;-;
