Today we'll take a look at the verbs 있다 and 없다. 있다 (it-da) expresses the idea that something exists. Conjugated into the present tense, it becomes 있어요. 있어요 can be used to mean: -someone or something exists in a specific place =I am here. It's over there. I am at school. -talking about something in your possession =I have a brother. He has a cat. I have a laptop. Examples 물은 있어요 = There is water/Water exists/I have water. 시간 있어요? = Is there time?/Do you have time? 없다 (eop-da) expresses the opposite, the idea that something doesn't exist. Conjugated into the present tense, it becomes 없어요. Examples 시간이 없어요 = There is no time. / I don’t have time. 친구가 없어요 = I don't have friends.
