grammar for "l"in "kal"

Postby JTSoftware » May 20th, 2016 10:07 am


In the following sentence:

오늘 사무실에 갈 필요가 없어요.

What's the grammar for having "ㄹ" in "갈"?

I assume "(place)에 갈" must be a pattern clause for "going to (place)".

Hi John,

Thanks for posting.
'갈' is the future form of the verb '가다'. It means 'will go'. The declarative future form would be:

갈 거야 (informal)
갈 거예요 (formal)
