Joao Paulo(조아오 파울로),

"Thank you" in Korean is

"감사합니다" = gamsahapnida

or

"고맙습니다" = gomapsupnida

I wonder what the pronunciation difference is between
ㄱ\ㅋ
ㅜ\ㅡ
ㅗ\ㅓ
etc etc

ㄱ\ㅋ : ㄱ is softer so it is more like a "g" whereas ㅋ is definitely a hard "k", ㄲ is somewhere in between.
ㅜ\ㅡ : 우 is like "soup" (round mouth", both 으 and 이 can be said with teeth together so 으 we affectionately called the "gut slash" because it closely resembles the sound one might make if punched in the stomach; and 이 is simply a long E.
ㅗ\ㅓ 오 is a long O, again round mouth, and 어 sounds more like a short U as in "up". I don't know if that helps...

It does help. For me I would say that 이 is a long i, since I'm not english.

Neumonic for Hangul?

Postby Zolarius » August 17th, 2007 2:10 pm

In English, we have the alphabet song, "A, B, C, D....now I know my ABC's."

Is there a similarity in Korean for the hangul? "Giyeok, ssang giyeok, nieun..."

No we don't have a song, but we have an easier way to memorize it.

Attach "아" to all the sounds, and you can make it like

"가나다라 마바사 아자차카 타파하"

"ganadara mabasa ajachaka tapaha"

It seems that those vowels like to be stuck to a consonant unless they are being used in an emoticon :o but the only one I know is ㅠ_ㅠ and this is nothing to cry about. I think that the consonants can hang out by themselves without looking odd but the vowels just need that place holder. 현우, when are you going to add to that emoticon thread?

-ㅅ- = "Singing" or "Stick ones nose into something"

ㅂ_ㅂ = "I'm a ghost" haha or maybe "I'm a girl with lashes"

ㅗ-_-ㅗ = "I don't wanna listen"
