Hi David,

Adjective/Verb + (으)ㄹ지도 모르다 is translated as “it might ~.” or “it may ~.”
Conjugation Rules:
1. If there is no batchim or if the adjective/verb stem ends with a ㄹ, 을지도 모르다.
2. If there is a batchim at the end of the adjective/verb stem, ㄹ지도 모르다.

Examples:
늦다 -> 늦을지도 모르다
하다 -> 할지도 모르다

몰라 is the present informal form of 모르다.

Hope this helps.

I have two questions regarding the Beginner S3, Lesson 12 dialogue.
Line 4 uses the phrase “그럴지도 몰라” and translates it as “it might be”. I am not familiar with that verb stem so I made the guess that the verb is 그러다. The Korean Class 101 dictionary defines it as “to do it, to do that” which doesn’t seem to fit the translation. So is that the right verb or is there more to the definition?

Secondly, if the translation is “it might be” why would we not use 이다 as the verb? Confused…

Hey 소팟,

Great try on sentence creation! it is almost done - let me just give you little bit of change on your sentences!;)

내가 저기에 있을 지도 몰라요./모른다 -> 저기 있다 could be used to mean ‘there’
저녁 먹을지도 몰라요. -> except for one little typo, this sentence is perfect 소팟!:D

Please keep up with your great job and hope to hear from you soon!;)

Thank you

- 내 가 저기를지도 모르다. I might be there.
- 저녁 먹을지도 모라요. Maybe you like go to dinner.

the alternative transcript is the same as the original transcript, even though it claims to be in the standard politeness level. it’s a carbon copy.

내일 일을 할지도 몰라요

Hi Lee,

I’m Jaehwi from Koreanclass101.com

That’s good sentence. Let me correct just one little thing.

일을 가다 is the phrases meaning ‘going to the work’, so it would be correct if you say 내일 일을 갈 거에요. : )

I hope this help.s

Thank you.
