Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Dana: Hi everyone, I'm Dana.
Jaehwi: And I'm Jaehwi.
Dana: And welcome to Must-Know Korean Sentence Structures, Season 1, Lesson 41. Giving Advice, Part 2.
Dana: In this lesson, you'll learn how to use a sentence pattern for making a suggestion.
PATTERN
Dana: For example, "How about sleeping some more?"
Jaehwi: 더 자는건 어때요? (deo janeungeon eottaeyo?)
Jaehwi: [slow] 더 자는건 어때요? (deo janeungeon eottaeyo?)
Dana: The pattern for making a suggestion has three elements. First, an adverb meaning "more.”
Jaehwi: 더 (deo).
Dana: Second, the verb stem plus connective suffix
Jaehwi: 는건 (neungeun).
Dana: In this case, it’s…
Jaehwi: 자는건 (janeungeon).
Dana: Third, the phrase to make a suggestion.
Jaehwi: 어때요 (eotteyo).
Dana: Altogether, we have... "How about sleeping some more?"
Jaehwi: 더 자는건 어때요? (deo janeungeon eottaeyo?)
[slow] 더 자는건 어때요? (deo janeungeon eottaeyo?)
[normal] 더 자는건 어때요? (deo janeungeon eottaeyo?)
Dana: We have the phrase.
Jaehwi: 는건 어때요 (neungeon eotteyo)
Dana: You can use it when making a suggestion. It is attached to a verb stem and is usually used at the end of the sentence. In the sample sentence, we have the adverb…
Jaehwi: 더 (deo)
Dana: which means “more”, the verb stem for "sleep" then the phrase…
Jaehwi: 는건 어때요 (neungeon eotteyo).
Dana: Altogether, we have...
Jaehwi: 더 자는건 어때요? (deo janeungeon eottaeyo?)
Dana: So remember this connective phrase, used in making suggestions, is attached to a verb stem and is used at the end of a sentence.
Dana: Here is another example meaning, "Why don't you play more?" First, adverb "more".
Jaehwi: 더 (deo).
Dana: Second, the verb stem plus connective suffix
Jaehwi: 는건 (neungeun).
Dana: In this case, we have…
Dana: 노는건 (noneungeun).
Dana: Third, the phrase to make a suggestion.
Jaehwi: 어때요 (eotteyo).
Dana: Altogether we have...
Jaehwi: 더 노는건 어때요? (deo noneungun eotteyo?)
[slow] 더 노는건 어때요? (deo noneungun eotteyo?)
[normal] 더 노는건 어때요? (deo noneungun eotteyo?)
Dana: "Why don't you play more?"
[pause]
Jaehwi: 더 노는건 어때요? (deo noneungun eotteyo?)
Dana: How do you ask, "Why don't you eat more?"? To give you a hint, "eat" is...
Jaehwi: 먹다 (meoktta). [slow] 먹다 (meoktta). [normal] 먹다 (meoktta).
Dana: "Why don't you eat more?"
[pause]
Jaehwi: 더 먹는건 어때요? (deo meogneungeon eotteyo)
[slow] 더 먹는건 어때요? (deo meogneungeon eotteyo)
[normal] 더 먹는건 어때요? (deo meogneungeon eotteyo)
[pause]
Jaehwi: 더 먹는건 어때요? (deo meogneungeon eotteyo)
REVIEW
Dana: Let's review the sentences from this lesson. I will tell you the English equivalent of the phrase and you are responsible for shouting it out loud in Korean. Here we go.
Dana: "How about sleeping some more?"
[pause]
Jaehwi: 더 자는건 어때요? (deo janeungeon eottaeyo?)
[pause]
Jaehwi: 더 자는건 어때요? (deo janeungeon eottaeyo?)
Dana: "Why don't you play more?"
[pause]
Jaehwi: 더 노는건 어때요? (deo noneungun eotteyo?)
[pause]
Jaehwi: 더 노는건 어때요? (deo noneungun eotteyo?)
Dana: "Why don't you eat more?"
[pause]
Jaehwi: 더 먹는건 어때요? (deo meogneungeon eotteyo)
[pause]
Jaehwi: 더 먹는건 어때요? (deo meogneungeon eotteyo)

Hi Sebastian,


Thanks for posting. Yes, the irregular verb 놀다's infinitive form is 놀아, but when used as a sequential, it becomes 노는.


Cheers,

So 놀다 becomes 노는건? The ㄹ is just discarded?
