We previously looked at the Sino-Korean numbers so today we'll be looking at the native Korean numbers. These are: 1 하나 [ha-na] 2 둘 [dul] 3 셋 [set] 4 넷 [net] 5 다섯 [da-seot] 6 여섯 [yeo-seot] 7 일곱 [il-gop] 8 여덟 [yeo-deol] 9 아홉 [a-hop] 10 열 [yeol] Usages: 1. TIME You use native Korean numbers to give the hour and Sino-Korean numbers to specify the minute. For example: 6:45pm 여셧시 사십오분 2. AGE You should give your age using native Korean numbers. 17살 = 열일곱살 *NOTE From numbers 1 through 99, the usage of native Korean numbers is generally very distinctively different from the usage of sino-Korean numbers, but for bigger units like 100, 1,000, 10,000 and etc., the words for these bigger numbers in the native Korean numbers are no longer used and only sino-Korean numbers are used.
I'm just beginning to learn all of this but can I make a suggesting? can you maybe add audio to how say the word. cause I don't think I'm pronouncing them right just by sounding it out
Actually I have two questions: is the "t" at the end of da-seot pronounced or not? Also, I didn't know there was two number systems. What is the difference between them?
there are two different number systems?!
good post so many people learning korean don't know the difference between the number systems and its really important!
