교과서예요. (Gyo-gwa-seo-ye-yo.)
한국어로 이거 뭐예요? (Han-gug-eo-ro i-geo mwo-ye-yo?)
Did you notice how I used a different pattern?
한국어로 이거 뭐예요? (Han-gug-eo-ro i-geo mwo-ye-yo?)
What’s this in Korean?
Instead of 어떻게 말해요? (eo-tteo-ke mal-hae-yo?) "How do you say," 어떻게 말해요? (eo-tteo-ke mal-hae-yo?), this pattern uses the phrase 뭐예요? (mwo-ye-yo?) "What is" 뭐예요? (mwo-ye-yo?)
Let’s take a closer look at 한국어로 이거 뭐예요? ( i-geo mwo-ye-yo?)
First is 한국어로 (Han-gug-eo-ro), meaning, "in Korean." 한국어로.
Next is 이거 ( i-geo) "this." 이거. 이거.
After this is the phrase 뭐예요? (mwo-ye-yo?) meaning "what is…." 뭐예요? 뭐예요?
First is 뭐(mwo), the shortened form of 무어 (mu-eo), meaning "what." 무어.
Next is 예요 (ye-yo), here it's like the "is" in "What is..." 예요. 예요.
All together, 한국어로 이거 뭐예요? literally, "Korean in, this, what is?" but translates as "What is this in Korean?" 한국어로 이거 뭐예요?
This pattern shorterns the question with the same effect.
You should be aware of this shortcut, but for this lesson, we’ll use the full sentence pattern.
