Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Eric: Hi everyone, I'm Eric.
Lyn: And I'm Lyn.
Eric: And welcome to Must-Know Korean Sentence Structures, Season 1, Lesson 7. Asking for Information About Something.
Eric: In this lesson, you'll learn how to use a sentence pattern for asking for information about something.
PATTERN
Eric: For example,
Eric: "What is your name?"
Lyn: 이름이 뭐예요? (ireumi mwoyeyo?)
Lyn: [slow] 이름이 뭐예요? (ireumi mwoyeyo?)
Eric: The pattern for asking for information about something has 3 elements. First, a noun, "name."
Lyn: 이름 (ireum).
Eric: Second, a subject marking particle.
Lyn: 이 (i).
Eric: Third, a phrase, "what is."
Lyn: 뭐예요 (mwoyeyo).
Eric: Altogether, we have... "What is your name?"
Lyn: 이름이 뭐예요? (ireumi mwoyeyo?) [slow] 이름이 뭐예요? (ireumi mwoyeyo?) [normal] 이름이 뭐예요? (ireumi mwoyeyo?)
Eric: When you’re asking for information about something, first, specify what you need to know. Then say the subject marking particle. Finally, say the phrase...
Lyn: 뭐예요 (mwoyeyo)
Eric: meaning "what is." All together, “What’s your name?” is...
Lyn: 이름이 뭐예요? (ireumi mwoyeyo?)
Eric: So remember that to ask for information about something, simply end the sentence with
Lyn: 뭐예요 (mwoyeyo)
Eric: meaning "what is."
Eric: Here is another example meaning, "What is the phone number?" First, a noun, "phone number."
Lyn: 전화번호 (jeonhwabeonho).
Eric: Second, a subject marking particle.
Lyn: 가 (ga).
Eric: Third, a phrase "what is."
Lyn: 뭐예요 (mwoyeyo).
Eric: Altogether we have...
Lyn: 전화번호가 뭐예요? (jeonhwabeonhoga mwoyeyo?) [slow] 전화번호가 뭐예요? (jeonhwabeonhoga mwoyeyo?) [normal] 전화번호가 뭐예요? (jeonhwabeonhoga mwoyeyo?)
Eric: "What is the phone number?"
[pause]
Lyn: 전화번호가 뭐예요? (jeonhwabeonhoga mwoyeyo?)
Eric: How do you say - "What is your major?" To give you a hint, "major" in Korean is..
Lyn: 전공 (jeongong). [slow] 전공 (jeongong). [normal] 전공 (jeongong).
Eric: “What is your major?”
[pause]
Lyn: 전공이 뭐예요? (jeongongi mwoyeyo?) [slow] 전공이 뭐예요? (jeongongi mwoyeyo?) [normal] 전공이 뭐예요? (jeongongi mwoyeyo?)
[pause]
Lyn: 전공이 뭐예요? (Jeongongi mwoyeyo?)
REVIEW
Eric: Let's review the sentences from this lesson. I will give you the English equivalent of the phrase and you are responsible for shouting it out loud in Korean. Here we go.
Eric: "What is your name?"
[pause]
Lyn: 이름이 뭐예요? (ireumi mwoyeyo?)
[pause]
Lyn: 이름이 뭐예요? (ireumi mwoyeyo?)
Eric: "What is the phone number?"
[pause]
Lyn: 전화번호가 뭐예요? (jeonhwabeonhoga mwoyeyo?)
[pause]
Lyn: 전화번호가 뭐예요? (jeonhwabeonhoga mwoyeyo?)
Eric: "What is your major?"
[pause]
Lyn: 전공이 뭐예요? (jeongongi mwoyeyo?)
[pause]
Lyn: 전공이 뭐예요? (jeongongi mwoyeyo?)

Outro

Eric: Okay. That's all for this lesson. You learned a pattern for asking for information about something, as in..
Lyn: 이름이 뭐예요? (ireumi mwoyeyo?)
Eric: meaning "What is your name?"

Try translating this question, "What is that?"
